A destination of glamour, wealth and enormous skyscrapers and luxury shopping, Dubai is one of the world’s emerging hotspots. Home to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa is not a sight to be missed, and an incredible feat of engineering and design; as is the nearby QE2 ocean liner, currently docked in Dubai. There are few better places on earth for shoppers, with Dubai’s mall the largest in the world, or if you fancy something a little more low-key, then the city’s traditional souks are a world away from the glitz and glamour of the big-name brands of the mall. Dubai’s huge cultural and ethnic mix means that there is also a great range of restaurants on hand, so food-lovers will be spoilt for choice.
Both nature enthusiasts and couples should head to the Dubai Miracle Garden, which is home to the largest collection of natural flowers in the world, and a majestic and romantic sight. Plus, many people overlook Dubai’s fantastic contemporary art scene, and you can see some of the very best up-and-coming art at galleries such as Carbon 12 Dubai and The Third Line.
When you book with Ibis, you can choose from an Ibis, Ibis budget and Ibis Styles hotel, meaning that there is something for everyone’s budget and taste. But you won’t be compromising on comfort or quality, with air-conditioned rooms (a must in the Middle East), parking and Wi-Fi just a few advantages of booking your dream holiday in Dubai with a budget-friendly Ibis.
