The United Arab Emirates, or the UAE, comprises of seven emirates, including the ever-popular Dubai, its Persian Gulf neighbour Ajman, up-and-coming Ras Al Khaimah resort and stunning Abu Dhabi. UAE tourism has skyrocketed in recent years, offering luxury city breaks with authentic Arabian elements thrown in. Its cities are abuzz with atmosphere, but United Arab Emirates holidays also serve up wide sandy dunes and glittering azure waters - plus its arid climate and blue skies lend well to dreamlike sunny escapes.
Famous for landmark shopping hubs, sky-kissing towers, lavish hotels coupled with cultural cityscapes, holidays to United Arab Emirates are some of the most unique in the world. The diversity of the emirate's means you can choose to experience a selection of holidays in this far flung nation, from buzzing beach and city vibes in Dubai, to world-class shopping and captivating culture in Abu Dhabi. Furthermore, the up-and-coming emirates of Fujairah and Ras al-Khaimah appeal with their lavish modernity with fewer crowds.
UAE experiences just two seasons – it’s hot and then it gets hotter! However, the best time to visit any city in UAE is from November to March. It is during the winter months that you get to see blue skies and a fantastic beach weather, even in the cities like Dubai. However, during this part of the year, cities in the United Arab Emirates receive massive footfall and do not expect anything quieter around the likes of Jumeirah Beach. The United Arab Emirates is easily accessed via its two international airports in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The airports are located less than an hour apart from one another by car. Both airports connect to flights around the world, making Dubai and Abu Dhabi the ideal holiday destination for stopover adventures.
