The United Arab Emirates were formed in 1971 when the states of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah came together to form the sovereign state. The UAE now covers 83,600 sq km’s with a population of just over 3 million.

Dubai is the main commercial centre within the Emirates and hosts some of the finest hotels anywhere in the world.

The investment in Dubai has continued to grow and the construction of Palm Island alone has added 120 km’s of beachfront to the beautiful Dubai coastline.

An upmarket winter retreat, Dubai has something to offer everybody. Wild Wadi water park, located adjacent to the Jumeirah Beach Hotel is a major attraction for adults and children alike. Those staying at any of the four Jumeirah International hotels will gain complimentary access throughout their stay.

Golfing is another major attraction, especially during the cooler winter months where you will also be able to experience night golfing on some of the finest courses.There are bargains to be had with everything from Japanese electronics to French and Italian fashion labels and quality jewellery all coming in at great prices when compared to back home. Dubai also hosts some of the world’s largest sporting events including golf’s Dubai Desert Classic and horse racing’s Dubai Cup.



The Maldives is situated on the equator, South West of Sri Lanka and comprises of over 1,100 islands forming 26 major atolls. 87 of these Islands are exclusive island resorts and just over 200 are inhabited.

As the Maldives are located on the equator, the average temperature rarely drops below 27o C with an average maximum of 32o C in the warmest months. Cultural and historical influences date back to 500 bc when it is believed the first inhabitants came from Ceylon in Sri Lanka. Travellers and early settlers from the days of the Silk Route have also brought influences from both East Africa and South Asia.The majority of Maldivians are Muslims and Islam is the national religion.

The Maldives offers some of the finest beaches and crystal clear waters you will find and boasts some of the best diving opportunities in the world. Due to the geographical nature of the Maldives, there is a lack of natural resources which means that almost everything has to be imported. This can mean that certain items are expensive when compared to home.
