United Arab Emirates

Created by Mondo for Finnair

You can’t stop your jaw from dropping at the first glimpse of Dubai’s skyscrapers mushrooming from the arid desert landscape and the palm tree shaped artificial islands from the window of the descending plane.

Dubai is a city of modern miracles and superlatives. Dubai has the world’s tallest skyscraper, largest shopping mall and completely unique artificial islands.

Dubai is at the same time a holiday destination like no other and a combination of the world’s best destination all in one. In Dubai, you can have a city break and a beach holiday all at once, shop and visit a theme park, enjoy they magic of the desert and feast in fine restaurants.

And what’s best: Dubai is safe and close by. Only a seven-hour flight from Europe to guaranteed sunshine and warm weather and with no jet lag.

Good to know about Dubai


One of the city’s oldest restaurants, Al Ustad Special Kabab, offers a selection of simple, melt-in-your-mouth Persian kebabs. Marinated and grilled, the tender meat is served with rice and yoghurt sauce with the sides of hummus, pita bread... The wall is adorned with pictures of celebrities who have dined at the restaurant.


While a desert safari sounds like a cliché, seeing a desert sunset is an unforgettable experience. The Big Red, located near the border with Oman, is the most popular desert destination thanks to its enormous orange sand dunes. You will enter the desert on a 4x4, and at the camp you will enjoy a buffet while watching the belly dancing show and ride a camel.


Dubai Outlet Mall is a hit among bargain hunters. Located just outside the city, it sells last-season fashion, trainers, luxury label shoes, bags and evening wear. On Mondays, some of the outlets give an additional 50% off on the discounted prices.
