Immerse yourself in the vibrant culture of the city's traditional souks or relax on the pristine beaches along the Arabian Gulf. There is so much you could do here on a family holiday or do absolutely nothing at all and enjoy some of the most luxurious beach hotels in the world. With a mix of modern marvels and desert charm, Dubai offers a unique winter sun experience.
