Dubai holiday deals starting under £500 with TUI, British Airways & more | Travel News | Travel

Tripadvisor’s annual “best of the best” Traveller’s Choice Awards has landed, with plenty of destinations to inspire your next holiday and this year, Dubai has taken the crown as the “best destination in the world”. Though the destination is known for luxury stays, world-class restaurants and high-end shopping, among other things, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some good package holiday deals on offer.

Dubai can be easily reached via direct flights from the UK on offer from a number of airlines, including British Airways, Emirates, TUI and Virgin Atlantic to name a few. And thanks to the high frequency of options, that means there are always competitive prices to enjoy.

“Dubai is a destination that mixes modern culture with history, adventure with world-class shopping and entertainment,” commented Tripadvisor.

“Catch a show at the Dubai Opera, see downtown from atop the Burj Khalifa and spend an afternoon along Dubai Creek exploring the gold, textile and spice souks.

“If you’re looking for thrills, you can float above the desert dunes in a hot air balloon, climb aboard a high-speed ride at IMG Worlds of Adventure or skydive over the Palm Jumeirah.”

Dubai’s toasty climate is also another draw for holidaymakers who want guaranteed sunshine. Even in its coldest month of January, the region experiences average highs of 24C and average lows of 14C, making it a fantastic winter sunshine hotspot.

But, if you really like it hot, then the summer months are for you. Dubai sees its hottest temperatures in August, where average highs can see the thermometer soar to 44C.
