"Dubai – Sightseeing"
Dubai Lying in the calm, blue waters of the southern Gulf and flanked by a majestic desert, Dubai and the Northern Emirates offer year-round sunshine and five-star luxury, plus the adventure of a unique Arabian experience. One of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is a place of fascinating contrasts, a distinctive blend of modern city and timeless desert, of East and West, of old and new. Hotels in this region rank amongst the best in the world. Food, from the excellent local dishes to the dozens of other national cuisines represented in Dubai, is absolutely superb. The sporting facilities, from game fishing to golf and from sand skiing to scuba diving, are all world class. With Emirates now flying to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Christchurch and Auckland, Dubai provides the perfect stopover destination. Dubai is fast approaching a new era with the realisation of ambitious projects nearing completion. By 2007, the first hotels will have opened on the Palm Jumeirah, which is now proudly part of Dubai’s amazing coastline. A marina project with restaurants and cafés is also being developed and will mean that throughout 2006 Dubai will be changing for the future. Whilst in resort, a minimal amount of disturbance will occur, however a few hotels’ land view rooms are affected. We therefore strongly advise you book sea-facing rooms. The situation is constantly changing and varies from resort to resort. Please enquire for the most up to date information.
