A trip to the UAE is something that should be seen in the whole family, and with your own travel concierge at your service you can ensure that every member of the family gets to experience the excitement and the fun. The following are just some of the reasons why everyone should consider Dubai as a family holiday destination.
For over a century the UAE has been home to one of the largest human populations. It is also home to the most diverse as well as a thriving business sector. Dubai’s cuisine in general has come on leaps and bounds. Along with this the city has embraced new trends with everything from the sand dunes to the Burj al Arab Hotel. Dubai locals enjoy food and drink with a passion and the city’s restaurants and hotels cater for all tastes and budgets.
The Burj Al Arab And The Wild Wadi Water Park
Dubai offers visitors the chance to experience a variety of things within a short distance from their hotels. Two of the must see tourist spots in Dubai are the Burj al Arab and the Wild Wadi Water Park. Built on the site of an ancient oasis, the Burj Al Arab Hotel blends modern luxury with traditional Arabian decor. Views of the Arabian sea, the sun setting over the horizon and the soft smell of fresh air envelop the visitor as he or she steps from their hotel rooms onto the sand dunes surrounding the hotel. From the Burj Al Arab Hotel there are several walking and camel rides through the beautiful desert landscape of Dubai.
The Wild Wadi Water Park is much closer to the Burj al Arab, but is still a very exciting destination. Once you have darted through the sand dunes, you will be greeted by a waterfall that was formed millions of years ago when a massive volcano erupted. This natural wonder is the crowning glory of Dubai and offers visitors the chance to swim in the clear turquoise waters, look at a huge amount of geysers and fountains as well as taking a boat ride over the waterway. Of course, the hotel offers its own swimming pool. Another unique feature of the Wild Wadi Water Park is that it is protected under strict conservation laws making it a far safer destination than other beach resorts in Dubai.
Tour Packages Is The Picturesque Emirate’s Famous Souks
The final location in the Dubai local tour packages is the picturesque emirate’s famous souks. The souks of Dubai literally sell the city out to visitors. These souks contain a plethora of shops selling everything from traditional handicrafts and carpets to electrical appliances, clothes, spices and other foods from all over the world. The jumeirah beach can also be reached by taking a taxi to Souk Madinat Jumeirah. This area is considered to be one of the best places in the world to eat due to the large number of restaurants and bistros that serve international food.
The final tourist attraction of the Dubai tour packages is the Al Hajar Mountains. The Al Hajar Mountains is a range of mountains surrounding the jumeirah mosque. It is believed that after Muhammad (SAW), angels decided to stay behind to teach mankind. They stayed behind in the form of a mountain paradise and today the mountains are a place of pilgrimage where Muslims from all over the world come to catch a glimpse of this divine place.
This Man Made Wonder
If you want to experience something completely different from the usual, the Dubai Burj Al Arab is the place for you. This man made wonder is the last word in luxurious luxury. The jumeirah mosque sits on a cliff overlooking the shimmering waters of the Persian Gulf. Inside the jumeirah, you will find a replica of the golden age; the Dubai carpet and the Al Hajar Mountains carpets. At the centre of the jumeirah is the Al Hajar Mountains with stunning views across the UAE.
The tour packages that include the Al Hajar Mountains will let you enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the rich culture and traditions that permeate the UAE. You will also get to experience the hospitality of the locals of Dubai.
These local businessmen are famous for their charity, compassion and understanding towards visitors. One way to help is to participate in the “agraha” or the “spice souk”, which is a market where locals sell everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to spices, jewelry, clothes and electronic goods to local residents.
