  • United Arab Emirates Luxury holidays

    Increasingly one of the most dramatic and lavish landscapes on Earth, the United Arab Emirates is home to some of the most luxurious destinations ever built, wealthy city-states of skyscrapers and towering hotels and apartment blocks, which rise like the masts of shipwrecks out of the desert sands. Phenomenal engineering feats are achieved almost on a daily basis in the region, with as much attention paid to the hidden infrastructure underpinning the buildings as to the gleaming glass facades of the towers themselves.

    The UAE's coastal landscape

    The southern shore of the Persian Gulf is a part of the United Arab Emirates for over 400 miles, and this lengthy coastline leads to plenty of offshore environments worth visiting for nature-lovers. The neighbouring small islands of the Gulf offer sandbars and, beneath the surface of the waves, coral reefs rich with aquatic life. Ongoing efforts to protect and even artificially extend the reefs mean that as onshore development progresses, these important habitats are high on the agenda to avoid any damage or even destruction of the fragile structures and the fauna to which they are home.

    Automotive in the UAE

    A major market in the United Arab Emirates is the automotive trade, and there are few more striking sights than a vivid red supercar or chrome-wrapped SUV powering its way along the desert roads, surrounded by nothing but sand and the city's skyscrapers in the distance. Head to the region to see some of the finest examples of automotive engineering in action in this way, or for the chance to join in by booking a driving excursion into the desert.

    When should I visit the United Arab Emirates?

    Nations rise and fall, countries are conquered and gain independence, but few regions have changed so dramatically in such a short time as the UAE, and only a generation ago the skylines of Dubai and Abu Dhabi in particular were very different indeed. Visit at any time and you're likely to see change, making the UAE one of the most compelling destinations on the planet at present. Abu Dhabi benefits particularly from hosting a spectacular Grand Prix each year, typically in November, and sports enthusiasts should head to Yas Marina for the weekend to be a part of this cultural highlight and escape the UK's early winter months.
