If you are lucky enough to be on holiday in the beautiful UAE you will not be short of things to do. Many of the great attractions you can visit and take part in are not expensive, some even free. However, for when you want to pay that little extra to give perhaps yourself or your family an extra special treat, there are some especially luxurious attractions, events and other time-passers to give a go, some of which we will be looking at in this article.
Take a Dinner on the Burj al Arab Helipad
You may be familiar with the Burj al Arab due to the legendary tennis match between Agassi versus Federer. As you may expect, eating at a venue so exclusive does not exactly come cheap, but as a bonus, the funds received to take part are often given to the ‘Eat and Feed’ initiative for the United Nations World Food Programme.
Private Air Journeys
Now, your luxury experience does not have to be in what you visit, but how you visit it! After all, you do not have to use a car or bus to get to every destination. Why not view Dubai from a high distance, looking down on a beautiful landscape with a private helicopter ride? You could for instance visit Sir Baniyas Island or take a flight to Yas Marina Circuit if you are a Formula One fan.
Take a Super-Yacht Cruise
Keeping with the view that luxury travel is a great experience to choose whilst on holiday in the UAE, why not take a boat ride, but not just any boat ride, a Super-Yacht Cruise! There are some excellent Dubai boat tours that not just bring you from A to B but allow you to experience your little sea adventure. These boats are well equipped with lovely function rooms including dining rooms, reception areas and lots of cabins to ensure there is room for plenty to stay.
Ultimate Luxury Desert Safari
There are some excellent desert safari tours that worth considering for your stay in the UAE. If you go down the luxury route you have the chance to ride in a private Mercedes G-Wagon or another supercar. The other option is you could even take a helicopter around the area and look at the desert from above!
Hunt for Gold at the Souq
