Dubai – the City of Gold

Published Monday, 21 May 2018 by Salman Zia

Here at Royal Travel, we specialise in offering unforgettable holidays to Dubai, including flights and accommodation. While the largest city in the United Arab Emirates may have a reputation for high prices and high society, we work directly with hotels in the area to give you the best price, meaning that you can travel like a king for a reasonable price.


Why Dubai?

With its audacious architecture, spectacular skylines, and futuristic projects (like the raised railway of the Dubai Metro), Dubai is a city like no other. In what is often misunderstood as a ‘billionaire’s playground’, visitors can experience sleek modernity and inspiring tradition in the city’s sumptuous shopping malls and street markets (or souks).


Where to Stay?

While the most luxurious hotels in Dubai might scare off some travellers with steep prices, it is surprisingly easy to find a great hotel for a reasonable price in the city, if you know where to look. One such venue is the JBR Walk (Jumeirah Beach Residence Walk), located near the beachfront of the Persian Gulf. Offering spectacular ocean views, and a shopping promenade with hundreds of shops, The Walk is a highly popular destination for visitors to Dubai.

If you’re more interested in yachts than sand dunes, The Dubai Marina is for you. With its glamourous views, and the proximity to the Metro it is ideal for visitors looking to travel to the many aspects of the city. It’s a huge draw for tourists, and for good reason.


Exclusive offers at Royal Travel

Because Royal Travel deals directly with many of the hotels in Dubai, we can give customers a better price than if they arranged it themselves. These offers extend to all the Madinat Jumeirah properties, including Al Qasr and Mina A’Salam which are excellent for the more discerning customer. We also select offers for hotels and apartments on the JBR Walk.
