The Emirates are experts in luxury, and they spare no effort where their guests are concerned. Natural Arabian hospitality and an appreciation of the finer things in life combine to create an atmosphere of leisure and opulence you’ll find nowhere else. Eastern and Western customs meet and blend, while the extreme modernity of Dubai’s striking architecture contrasts with the wilds of the desert. To immerse yourself in the local culture, visit traditional neighbourhoods and the sumptuous palaces of the sheikhs or venture into the desert on horseback, camelback, or on foot. Enjoy golf, tennis, and a wealth of water sports at modern installations on the gulf coast, or experience the thrill of falconry, ancestral sport of the Arabian nobility. Bask in the endless sun and extravagant luxury of the fascinating, exotic Emirates.
