Dubai holidays offer a stunning combination of contemporary indulgence and traditional cultures. While the hotels and tourist hotspots of Dubai are modern, manmade wonders, you're never too far from traditional markets or the beautiful desert.

The year round hot weather makes holidays to Dubai a firm favourite amongst sunseekers and beach lovers. But don't think that sunbathing is your only option in Dubai. In fact, there's so much do see and do in Dubai that you'll probably need to visit again just to do the things you missed out on the first time! Here are some of our favourite Dubai holiday activities:
Take a jeep tour of the desert sand dunes. This rollercoaster ride excites and exhilarates and is a great way to see the surrounding areas of the city. If the adrenalin version of this tour doesn't quite tickle your fancy and you prefer a slower pace to life on holiday, you can enjoy the same scenery riding a camel.
For those on family holidays to Dubai then a visit to one of the city’s amazing aqua parks is a must. The most popular are Wild Wadi Waterpark or Atlantis The Palm’s Aquaventure, which has 105 record-breaking slides and is the largest attraction of its kind in the world. The slides, chutes and attractions at both are sure to thill and excite, and kids of all ages will enjoy a day out at either one.
Time your Dubai holiday right and you might be in the city when the Formula One race is held in nearby Abu Dhabi or when the Dubai World Cup horse racing championship is held at the Meydan racecourse. There are many other major international events and concerts that are held in Dubai and bring in an influx of famous personalities, sports people and celebrities.
Perhaps one of the most popular activities on Dubai holidays is shopping. As with the rest of Dubai the old and the new offer an interesting contrast and should both be experienced. From the ultra modern Mall of the Emirates with all the latest brands and high street names to the traditional gold and spice souks (markets) shopping is a genuine experience in Dubai.
