A city of alluring contrasts, Dubai is a combination of old and new, ancient and modern traditions, deserts and beaches, and blended cultures that create an exciting, cosmopolitan metropolis. Its elevation as a business, travel, and economic hub of the Middle East has also inspired a fun, safe, and lavish environment.


Dubai is a great destination for those seeking a unique, luxurious experience with several options to relax and play. The Jumeirah beach area boasts stunning resorts that take full advantage of the gorgeous white shoreline. A bustling downtown area offers gold-and-spice souks, high-end shopping and exciting nightlife. Inland, the salt-crusted coastal plains give way to a north-south running line of dunes where premium resorts offer guests a more tranquil experience amidst desert beauty. There are also notable resorts just outside of Dubai such as in Abu Dhabi and across the border in Oman that make the greater Dubai area a truly one-of-a-kind destination.


The city prides itself on offering guests a bigger and better experience than its luxury-playground counterparts: Accommodations are unparalleled, service is outstanding, meals are a gastronomic delight, and the activities are endless. Dubai is home to the tallest building in the World and some of the most extravagant hotels anywhere. It also hosts one of the world’s richest golf tournaments, the Dubai Desert Classic, and the Dubai World Cup – the world’s richest horse race.


Dubai offers many other unique activities, including desert treks incorporating camel racing, sandboarding, exhilarating dune rides, and falconry. Additional diversions include marvelous duty-free shopping, excellent golf, a water park, an indoor ski facility, and scuba diving. For adventure after dark, Dubai’s large number of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs provide entertainment and refreshment in a variety of truly rich settings.


Long thought of as a stopover city, Dubai is now easily a destination in itself but can be combined with any number of cities and islands as flights arrive into Dubai from many places around the world including New York, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Houston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles in the U.S.
