Markets teeming with gold, archaeological sites brimming with centuries-old relics, and restaurants overflowing with spicy food… find them all in Dubai! One of the emirates of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Dubai is known for its hospitality, welcoming people of different cultures while maintaining its own traditions.
Your flight to Dubai lands at Dubai International Airport. Facilities on-site include a medical centre; kid's play area; the Dubai Duty Free shopping centre; the G-Force Health Club with its pool, gym, and Jacuzzi; and restaurants such as Jashan (for Indian food), Bistro (for Lebanese cuisine), and Tansu Kitchen (for Chinese and Mongolian barbecue). The airport provides special buses to the city, with large compartments for baggage.
Flying from Birmingham, Glasgow, London, Manchester, and Newcastle is Emirates, Dubai’s international airline. Emirates’ in-flight entertainment system, Information Communication Entertainment (ICE), is capable of providing over 600 channels of movies, television, and music. In 2007, they even installed docking ports for iPod music and video players. The spacious Economy Class offers delicious multi-course meals. If you wish to be more comfortable as you sleep, “lie-flat seating” is provided in Business Class. There are even private suites on certain planes.
