3 nights in Dubai, 8 nights in Sydney and 3 nights in Hong Kong
These eclectic destinations combine to create an exciting multi-centre holiday.
Dubai is renowned for its glamorous hotels, huge malls and exotic 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 around the public squares and old streets of Al-Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood (also known as Al Bastakiya), see 140-foot-high water jets at Dubai Fountain, or visit the largest man-made island on the planet — Palm Deira. In the evening, Dubai offers some of the best drinking, dining and entertainment venues.
Your Australian adventure begins with eight nights staying at Mercure Sydney. This city offers famous landmarks, galleries, theatres, and restaurants, as well as countless beaches where you can learn to surf and scuba-dive.

Or why not take a stroll around one of the many local museums, galleries and parks? As one of Australia's most cosmopolitan cities, you can find a huge selection of pubs, terrace bars, bistros, and world-class restaurants surrounding your hotel.
Your final destination is one of the world's most exciting city destinations — Hong Kong.

Cruise on a junk boat to Lei Yue Mun — famous for its fresh variety of seafood with a bustling fish market — or take the excitingly-steep tram to the top of Victoria Peak for spectacular views.
