The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a place where you can ski snowy indoor slopes, career down water slides, stay on a man-made island shaped like a palm tree and put some money on a camel. Dubai, UAE's most populated and famous emirate, is a luxury adventure playground for grown-ups and families alike, and is a great choice for a luxury holiday, honeymoon or family holiday with a difference.
There are plenty of sophisticated pleasures, with top notch luxury hotels, gourmet restaurants, golf, spas and shopping in lavish malls or bustling souks. Then there are the simple pleasures: basking on the beach sipping cool drinks while the warm Gulf waters lap around your sunbed.
