On the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe, Dubai is a cosmopolitan city of diversity and contrasts. It is a vibrant and unique destination, combining a variety and excitement with opulence and luxury. See the best that Dubai has to offer in the lap of luxury with our Dubai Packages.
Surrounded by mesmerizing Arabian sands, Dubai is an oasis of luxe glamour and decadence; some would say a modern-day Babylon. This grandeur and ultra-modernity is what draws tourists to choose Dubai holidays. Visitors picking Dubai Packages visit this city state for its haute couture boutiques, five star hotels, Lamborghini police cars and heaven piercing high rises.
Dubai wasn’t always the global city it is today. With our Dubai trip package, you will see an oft ignored side of Dubai. Before becoming the most expensive city in the Middle East, Dubai was a small fishing village founded in the 18th century by nomadic tribes. Its location near Iran made it a center for trade for most of the 18th and 19th century, contributing to its rise as a regional power. The event that catapulted the city to economic superstardom however was the discovery of oil. It is this newfound wealth in the 1960s that spurred Dubai’s growth and made Dubai tour packages a favorite of travelers everywhere. From the small village of a thousand, inhabited by Bedouin nomads, the city has grown manifold and become a bustling metropolis with nearly three million residents of whom only 15% are citizens of the UAE.
Entertainment and Nightlife
Being the biggest city in the UAE with a huge population of expatriates, there is a host of options for Dubai holidays. As dusk falls, the city comes alive with neon lights and hordes of people. Dubai tour packages and Dubai holiday packages are best enjoyed in the evenings. As part of your Dubai holidays, you could enjoy an authentic Emirati evening at a shisha café or head to the city’s many restaurants, nightclubs or cafes to make the most of your Dubai tour packages. Dance the night away to popular music or the traditional Arabic music, or Hip Hop music favoured by some clubs. For fans of electronic music, make your Dubai Packages really special by planning your Dubai holidays around shows held by International DJs in Dubai. Dubai is a popular venue for performances by international musicians in genres ranging from chamber music to rock. We recommend making a visit to the Dubai Opera House a part of the itinerary of your Dubai Packages to enjoy an opera performance or just stand in awe of the stunning dhow shaped building. The city offers incredible beach bars, dancehalls and rooftop clubs catering to every budget and aesthetic.
Dubai, however, is not just for hedonistic party animals. Dubai holiday packages can be full of family fun as well. Take a Dubai Safari with your family to truly experience the Arabian Desert and to make the most of your Dubai trip package. You could drive across the desert sands or take a camel safari on the dunes. Dubai holiday packages are sure to bring fun and adventure to the entire family. You could try sand boarding, dune surfing or quad biking in the Dubai desert and spend the evening watching a traditional Arabic belly dancing performance and an Emirati barbeque meal. Make your way to Aquaventure Water Park, one of the best water parks in the world. Spread across 17 hectares with thrilling water slides and rides, the park is sure to be one of the best parts of most Dubai tour packages.
The kids will also love the Lost Chambers Aquarium, a part of Atlantis The Palm Hotel. The Atlantis themed lagoons and chambers that make up the aquarium are filled with over 65000 marine creatures such as sharks, manta rays and other exotic fish.

Zip past the palatial mansions and villas of the Palm Jumeirah, an artificial island in the shape of a palm tree. This fun cruise promises the best photo opportunities of your Dubai holidays.
Another fun activity that should be part of all Dubai holiday packages is flyboarding. These devices like look jetpacks but are more like snowboards with pressurized streams of water that propel them into the air. You will feel like you’re flying as you take in the sights of the Dubai Marina. You could also take a tour of the Marina on a jet ski, soaking in all of the main attractions of Dubai like the Burj Al Arab, Marina, the Palm and the Atlantis. Other water sports that you could try your hand at, in Dubai, include kitesurfing, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, scuba diving and snorkeling.

Souk is the Arabic word for a marketplace, much like a bazaar where any kind of goods are brought or exchanged.
Before Dubai became the global hub that it is today, boats or dhows from other Emirati countries as well as India, Ceylon, China and the Far East sold their goods at these Dubai souks. Traders from around the world brought with them a variety of merchandise that was both rare and exotic.
Today, modern Dubai has scores of vibrant, lively souks scattered all over the city staying true to the city’s Arabic roots. Most Dubai tour packages, owing to our love of everything gold, will include a visit to the Gold Souk, a bazaar dedicated to gold and nothing but gold.
