Sprawling Dubai soars beyond the clouds with its distinctive skyline dominated by imposing skyscrapers (including the world’s tallest), its striking blend of Arabian tradition and contemporary world-class facilities an icon of the modern generation. A showcase of divine luxury, Dubai offers a multitude of stunning hotels and resorts, stunning souks and white beaches as well as world-class shopping and nightlife.
Bali offers the ideal antidote to Dubai’s urban sprawl. Dramatic volcanic cones and beautifully patterned paddy fields of rice stretch down towards stunning white – and black – sand beaches, lapped by the warm blue waters of the Indian Ocean, while intricate temples set the scene against some of the world’s best renowned sunset vistas. You can play and relax in the stunning resorts of Kuta and Seminyak, home to some terrific nightlife, or slow the pace right down in quieter Sanur and Jimbaran, while central Ubud is a trove of art and culture.
