A skyline dominated by the world’s tallest skyscrapers with luxury cars on every corner, Dubai is renowned for its glamorous hotels, huge malls and stunning beaches. From the 160-storey Burj Khalifa and modern Dubai Marina to the grand Jumeirah Mosque and colourful souk markets, Dubai is a city of modernity and tradition. Stroll through Al-Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood — which features cafes, museums, public squares, and old-style buildings — see 140-foot-high water jets at the mesmerising Dubai Fountain, or enjoy a snorkelling session and see tropical marine life. In the evening, Dubai offers some of the most stylish bars and restaurants in the world alongside a great entertainment scene.
After Dubai, your Australian adventure begins with five nights staying in Mercure Sydney. This city offers renowned landmarks, galleries, theatres, and restaurants, as well as about 100 golden beaches where you can learn to surf and scuba-dive.
