Take a holiday in Dubai to experience a mix of excitement, entertainment, and relaxation.
Appreciate the collections at Al Fahidi Fort and Sharjah Museums. Get some cultural insight at Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum and Al Ain Oasis. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dubai: Qasr al Muwaiji (in Al Ain) and Sharjah (Sharjah Heritage Museum, Sharjah Calligraphy Museum, &more). Spend the 13th (Thu) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Jumeirah Public Beach, buy something for everyone on your list at Souk Madinat Jumeirah, cool off at Wild Wadi Waterpark, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
