First book, first serve - festivities in Dubai
Wednesday 29, September 2010
To spend the festivities in the Orient offers advantages which transform the cold season in Europe into an unforgettable experience.
Ho ho ho, until Christmas and New Year's Eve are only some months left and the one who is looking for something special should not hesitate too long with planning the dream holidays. Since snow became a rarity at Christmas over here it might be even more attractive to flee into the sun. Dubai as the place of celebrating Christmas and New Year's are affordable highlights as soon as you book in time. To spend the Christmas days in the Orient has many charming aspects as the hotels create a wonderful atmosphere. This Christian festivity does not play an important role to the citizens, therefore they can demonstrate even more commitment to prepare idyllic days for guests - lavish menus with a variety of typical Christmas dishes, decorated Christmas trees and musical entertainment. Of course Santa Claus will visit most of the hotels to delight children, although he might arrive on a camel's back. A good tip is to defer the purchase of presents, as the best place to do Christmas shopping is the overwhelming region's shopping offer. Festively decorated shopping malls provide a wide range of international brands and gift ideas.
The "Souk Madinat" enchants with a Christmas market which combines mulled wine and water pipe. In between people can savour the missed snow within the "Ski Dubai" of the "Mall of the Emirates" or the feeling of winter wonderland will be completed by ice-skating inside the "Dubai Mall". After the Christmas season guests are able to let the body float in the pools, to join rapid dune bashings or to visit cultural sites before the next highlight approaches - the turn of the year in the United Arab Emirates with pompous fireworks. No other country rules this art more than Dubai with its world famous pyrotechnics. On New Year's guests can benefit from Gala Dinners and lively atmosphere on-site. A lot of hotels start own fire acts, furthermore the fireworks of "Burj Al Arab" or hotel "Atlantis" on the famous palm islands "Jumeirah" are world famous. Long since great offers exist from affordable stays to the most exclusive Christmas- and New Year's Eve Events with various extras. The service "Dubai Exclusive Hotels" of the tour operator "Emirates Exclusive Hotels" supports all searchers with competent advice to enable the ideal stay during the festivities.
A spectacle from 1001 nights one should not forego as still availabilities are given. The early bird catches the worm!
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
