When people think of Dubai, they think of luxury holidays in the desert. They don't usually think skiing. However, the city has brought snow to the desert with Ski Dubai, a 22,500 square metre indoor ski resort. Step out of the sun and step into a winter wonderland.
When you return to the desert air, visit the Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure in the world at 2,716.5 feet tall and more than 160 stories. From there, you'll have a spectacular view of The World, an artificial archipelago in the shape of a world map, and the legendary Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
Dubai is a great city for a family holiday and is known for its travel packages that immerse visitors in Arabic culture. Visitors can tour the Grand Mosque, ride camels on the beach and visit a local souk. Before you leave, step out of the desert once more and visit the Aquarium, located inside the Dubai Mall. It's home to more than 33,000 animals displayed in one of the world's largest viewing panels. In Dubai, it's go big or go home.
