If you’re looking to experience a city break like no other, it has to be one of our last minute Dubai holidays. This fascinating metropolis is just bursting at the seams with culture, glamour and allure - it’s regarded as one of the most exciting places in the world!
One of the best components of booking one of our Dubai late deals is the city’s unrivalled versatility. Where else can you spend the morning perusing designer fashion houses in the world’s biggest shopping mall, before whiling the afternoon away on a pristine white beach?
Getting to Dubai has never been easier, with many UK airports offering multiple daily flights to Dubai International Airport. The average flight duration to Dubai from the UK is less than seven hours, making this a wonderful choice for travellers who want to go long haul, without the flight time creeping into double figures.
Dubai used to be a playground exclusive to millionaires, but it’s now become one of the most popular and best-loved tourist destinations in the world. Due to the city’s popularity, you’ll find a wealth of luxury hotels dotted across the Emirate to suit all needs and budgets.
So sit back, relax and browse our range of last minute Dubai holidays - and book the Arabian adventure of a lifetime.
Dubai is such a huge and versatile city, it would be impossible to experience everything in one visit. Here are some of the best things to do in Dubai, which come with the added bonus of not needing to book your tickets well in advance.
The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building on Earth, and is situated in the city’s exhilarating financial district. Here you can venture to the 124th floor and see the Emirate from a bird's eye view - including the surrounding desert and, on clear days, the shores of Iran. You can buy Burj Khalifa tickets on the same day when you visit, but this may end up costing a bundle. So for if you’re a last minute traveller we recommend buying tickets online, which you can do one or two days in advance depending on the day of the week you visit.
If you’re looking to indulge in a spot of retail therapy during your stay, the Dubai Mall is the largest shopping centre in the world by area - yet another record broken by the city. Here you can browse designer stores like Gucci and Armani, check out some unique boutiques or skim through some of your high street favourites.
Many of the hotels in Dubai boast their own private beaches, so it goes without saying if you stay in one of these that you won’t have to book your sun lounger in advance. Spend your days soaking up the sunshine, don your snorkel and experience life beneath the waves or watch the sun set over the magnificent Arabian gulf. If you’re staying in the city rather than at a beach hotel, you’ll find there’s also a wide range of free public beaches in Dubai. Head over to the Jumeirah Public Beach for free access to the sands, as well as breathtaking views of the iconic Burj Al Arab.
If you’re visiting Dubai on a family holiday, little kids and big kids will love the water parks in the city. Aquaventure is located by the renowned Atlantis The Palm hotel, and Wild Wadi right next to the world-famous Burj Al Arab. Both are among the largest water parks in the world, with gut-wrenching slides, relaxing lazy rivers and an abundance of exotic sealife.
