Flying Squirrel Holidays is actively involved in promoting tourism in Dubai and offering unparalleled holiday experiences in the Arabian Wonderland.
Kissed by the waters of the Persian Gulf, blessed by abundant sunshine and miles of desert land that offer innumerable possibilities of adventure, Dubai is a fantasy waiting to be explored. The present and the past coexist beautifully here. Glittering skyscrapers that are architectural marvels stand proudly next to heritage souqs, you can zip in and out on the metro and ride a wooden dhow on the Creek with equal joy. In summer there are ski slopes to be enjoyed and in winter the sun, sea and surf turn this land into the most beautiful place on earth. Here is a lowdown on how you can enjoy Dubai in 24 hours, seven days and almost always.
From November to April, the crystal-clear waters of the Arabian Gulf remain firmly in focus. Spend a full day in and out of the water on Kite Beach, get your selfie in front of Burj Al Arab or enjoy being pampered at the spas in one of the iconic beach clubs, which fringe the Palm Jumeirah. There is something to do for the whole family, from kite surfing, jet skiing and paddle boarding to making the most of the state-of-the-art running tracks. Sun, sand, blue skies and even bluer water – we can plan the perfect holiday for you in Dubai in winter. And if you want to explore the myriad hues of the desert, let us take you for a desert safari, where the beauty of the dunes, the setting sun will let you reimagine Dubai like never before.
A week in the Arabian wonderland of Dubai offers you enough and more to engage in. Start your week at the Atlantis, discovering underwater marine life and jumping down water slides that offer crazy rides at the Aquaventure. Once you are done with the adrenaline rush, experience the beauty of the desert at the Bab Al Shams, a signature desert resort. Tee off at the Emirates Golf club, while your kids get to enjoy some delightful time at the Ski Dubai, the world’s largest indoor ski slope. You can also sign up at the Sky Dive Dubai where you can throw all caution to the wind and jump from an aircraft. Get a good retail therapy at the utterly gorgeous Dubai Mall, and some pampering right after that at the best spas in the city. Discover world class hospitality and make it a memory of a lifetime as you embark on a gastronomical journey in this city of a thousand cultures.
Are you pressed for time? Do you still want to get a taste of one of the most beautiful cities in the world? Here are a few things you can do to zip in and zoom out. Ride the Metro, take a selfie with the BurjKhalifa, shop for traditional handicraft at the Souq Al Bahar, enjoy the setting sun as you watch the Dubai Fountain, raise a toast at one of the many iconic bars of the city with a great view and finally call it a day with a great dinner. Still some time in hand? Go for a dhow ride at the creek early morning and well, maybe, just think of staying back.
