Holidays to Dubai and further Emirates

Dubai and its further Emirates

With lovely beaches of powdery white sand and an azure sea which is crystal clear and warm, a holiday to Dubai and its Emirates is the perfect place to relax and soak in the Arabian sun which shines out of a clear blue sky day after day. Made up of seven different emirates, the United Arab Emirates are increasingly popular with British holiday makers who travel here year after year to experience the stunning weather, unique culture and incredible scenery this charming land has to offer. At Mercury Holidays we have extensively explored the UAE and are proud to bring you holidays to 5 of our favourite locations; Dubai itself separated into Dubai City & Jumeirah Beach plus the further Emirates of, Fujairah, Ajman and Ras Al Khaimah.

Dubai, The perfect mix of City and Beach

Dubai is by far the best known and most famous of the emirates, famed for its stunning architecture and ultra-modern skyline. The origins of Dubai are lost in the mists of time with early evidence of settlement dating back to the Stone Age. Dubai in its modern incarnation originally started as a small pearl fishing village; however this city has grown from humble beginnings to a world famous metropolis renowned for its prosperity and stunning architecture. With a choice of either Dubai city, famed for its buildings and shopping opportunities don't miss the famous Gold souk; or Dubai Beach (Jumeirah Beach) the perfect choice for sun seekers and home to the world famous Burj al Arab hotel, and the artificial structures of The Palm and The World.

Transport: Taxis are the most popular way to travel around and are metered, with a minimum fare of 10Dhs. Public buses are available. The Dubai Metro can be accessed on various days & times. Alternatively a small Abra ferry will take you from one side of the Creek to the other.

Explore the other Emirates

Beyond Dubai, the UAE is a fascinating mix of culture and scenery. Choose from Fujairah on the western coast, with its mountainous scenery and stunning beaches; Ajman, the smallest Emirate by area or Ras al Khaimuh to the north with its sandy shores and stunning natural landscape. Whilst each Emirate offers a truly unique holiday experience, they all share one common theme; each promises a remarkable holiday.
