About Dubai – the experience


Dubai is best known as a place where rich cultural heritage and westernised living exists side by side – a place where beautiful beaches meet skyscraper hotels, and vast deserts provide an idyllic and contrasting backdrop to its modern, thriving business community.

Year-round sunshine attracts millions of leisure and business visitors from all over the world; both looking to explore the ancient attractions, visit the designer shopping malls and stroll through native spice markets at some point during their stay.

Situated on the south west corner of the Arabian Gulf, it is the second largest emirate in the UAE. Its central location has allowed Dubai to become a popular and accessible tourist destination and also gives teachers the opportunity to visit nearby countries in school breaks.
