Where ancient deserts meet towering skyscrapers
Arabian desert and majestic mountains combine with a dynamic and ever-rising skyline with our UAE holidays, offering the best of the historic past and high-octane present. There's the planet's biggest snow park, a racetrack hosting the world's richest race and lush golf courses, all punctuated by superb shopping malls, souks and pockets of traditional architecture.
It’s all juxtaposed with miles of sun-bleached sand and crystal clear waters where you can enjoy dhow cruises at dusk. Plus there’s a wild, remote interior with a desert worthy of a Hollywood epic. We'll happily arrange a candlelit supper among the dunes, prepared by an internationally renowned chef. You can also explore the Al Hajar Mountains, the highest range in the east of the Arabian Peninsular.
To the south, Abu Dhabi offers tree-lined boulevards and lush gardens behind a high-rise corniche and splatter of uninhabited Gulf islands. Architects including Norman Foster, Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid, have designed an extraordinary selection of new museums. This includes outposts of the Guggenheim and Louvre, alongside the exquisite Zayed National Museum, Maritime Museum and the multiple stages of the Performing Arts Centre.
And we'll show you Dubai, the second largest emirate, where blockbuster sights embrace world-class accommodation. Visit man-made archipelagos swaddled by emerald water and the spiky Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, all best appreciated from a helicopter. Our established regional team provides highly qualified, multilingual guides and superb contacts for all our UAE holidays.
