Dubai tour information

 

Located south of the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula and one of the seven Emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, Dubai accounts for much of the country’s tourism. From out of the desert, an ever increasing number of “super hotels” have emerged combining accommodation, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, shopping and sports facilities under one roof. Traditional attractions are also numerous, from lively souk markets to tranquil beaches.

Sports Tours to Dubai
Football and cricket are the most popular sports in Dubai; the city has five teams in the UAE professional football league and in 2005, the International Cricket Council (ICC) moved its HQ there from London. Horse racing, tennis and golf are also popular pastimes, and rugby enjoys a strong expat following, with the annual Dubai Sevens tournament attracting spectators from across the world. A new development, Dubai Sports City, featuring 50,000,000 square feet of sporting venues, academies and leisure attractions promises to have some of the facilities in the world.

 

Sample Dubai Excursions

Burj Khalifa 
A literally unmissable landmark, Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest man-made structure. At 818 metres it is 300 metres taller than the previous record holder, Taipai 101 in China, and twice as tall as the Empire State Building. This famous landmark is definately worth a visit in between your sporting fixtures in Dubai.

Running 14km from the Persian Gulf to the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, the creek runs through the centre of Dubai and was originally used by trading vessels to and from India, Africa and the Middle East. Today the old shipping culture has been taken over by tours and cruise vessels which take in old and new landmarks. If your sports tour group is big enough, we might even be able to arrange a private cruise through Dubai.
