The UAE WITH A&KPrepare yourself: the UAE doesn't do shy and retiring. Sunny, historic, traditional? Yes. Magnificent Arabian desert and majestic mountains? Yes. But when it comes to its dynamic ever-rising skyline, modesty goes out of the tinted skyscraper window.
To make the most of its historic past and high octane present, our long established regional team provides highly qualified, multi-lingual guides, superb contacts - we'll happily arrange a candlelit supper among the dunes prepared by a internationally renowned chef - and the best 4WD vehicles.
Take an Abercrombie & Kent holiday to the United Arab Emirates in 2014 and we'll show you Dubai, the second largest emirate, where 90 per cent of its cosmopolitan population are expats. Its blockbuster sights embrace dazzling luxury accommodation, including the world's tallest hotel, artistic man-made archipelagos swaddled by emerald water that are best appreciated from a helicopter - naturally we'll arrange one ¬- and spiky Burj Khalifa, the highest building on earth.

Mashpi Lodge. OMG! Unreal, unbelievable and quite surreal. Our two guides Sebastian and Nester took us everywhere. We saw over 100 species of birds including 13 different hummingbirds. The photos I took are brilliant. I can't begin to tell you how fantastic the two days were.
Thanks for organising the holiday Eleanor Mawer and thanks to A&K .
