Dubai is one of the most spectacular cities in the world with a glamorous mix of designer shopping and modern architecture.
Dubai is known worldwide for its stunning beauty, climate, marvellous architecture and opulent lifestyle, yet the areas surrounding this city offer an equally exquisite experience for anyone wishing to take a luxury holiday in the Middle East.
Sharjah, for example, is situated several miles north-east of Dubai and has a reputation for housing visitors in style in beach coast villas, towering five-star hotels, jaw-droppingly beautiful holiday resorts and a variety of luxury spas. On the opposite coast to Dubai (but just 65 miles away) sits Fujairah with some of the most lavish resorts one could hope to find, many of which are populated with rooftop swimming pools, classy bars and wonderful ocean views. Another nearby location worth visiting is Ras Al-Khaimah, a delightfully wealthy area sitting to one side of the Hajar Mountains.
