Great Winter Holiday Destinations

The weather in the UK is now wet and sort of chilly. I hear some parts of the country will be having some snow, which tells you how cold it is at the moment. I find the weather miserable. It is the season where I find myself staying indoors the most thanks to the gloomy weather. If you are in the UK, and are in search of somewhere warm and sunny to explore this season, here are 3 holiday destination ideas for you.

 

Dubai

The Middle East is a great holiday destination all year round, especially now that we are experiencing cold weather. It is usually nice and warm in Dubai. I have visited Dubai several times with the family, and the best time to explore Dubai is between November and March. The weather is warm but not boiling warm during these months. And it is a great place to escape to during the chilly winter months.

There are various activities for everyone in Dubai. We have visited Dubai as a couple before the twins were born, and we have travelled to Dubai with the kiddies twice. It was great fun every time.

 

Muscat, Oman

We visited Muscat Oman last summer. It was boiling hot so we didn’t really enjoy the trip. So I won’t recommend you visit during the summer months. But the weather is a lot cooler this time of the year (just like in Dubai), which makes it another great holiday destination.

There are various family friendly activities, both indoors and outdoors. I would love to go back with the kids during the winter months in future.

 

Algarve Portugal

Algarve, Portugal is another great place to visit this season. We visited in October half term, and had an amazing time. The weather was warm and sunny all the time we were there. We explored the beach and all the city had to offer. The kids loved it. There was a lot to see and do, and we will definitely be visiting again.

It is definitely a city to explore, and get a break from the chilly winter weather. I just checked the weather forecast at Algarve now, and it is a lovely 15 degrees with some sunshine. That would be amazing to have now compared to the miserable 7 degrees with rain here.

 

What do you think of these places? Have you visited any of them before? If I had to pick a favourite, I would pick Dubai for luxury and fun., Algarve for proximity and Muscat for a more relaxed holiday.

Dubai – A Destination for Thrill Seeking Holiday

I love travelling. Exploring various cities/countries always put me on the high, which is why I always look out for any travel opportunity I can lay my hands on. We have kind of slowed down our travelling because of the kiddies. We have visited many countries with the kids but the reality of it is travelling with them isn’t easy. The good news is that they are getting older, so our travel thrill seeking holidays would be back on track. We have a few cities we are thinking of visiting in the next few months and I hope they happen.

Looking back at all the holidays I have been on in the last few years, my favourite is and always will be (for now anyway) Dubai. I just love that place. It is a beautiful holiday destination. There is something for everyone and for every family. It is a thrill seeking holiday for sure so if you are after good fun, you need to visit Dubai.

Regardless of what you are into, there are definitively activities to keep you very busy. And as long as your travel insurance covers all aspects of your travel, you are fine to explore and have good fun. The importance of travelling with a travel insurance that covers everyone on the trip and all aspects of your trip can’t be overemphasised. Travel Insurance is not something you should ever skip when going on holiday as you never know when it would come in handy. And it pays to be safe than sorry. If you are shopping around for best deals on travel insurance, you can check out https://www.bupaglobal.com/en/quote for a quote.

When it comes to Dubai adventures, there are so many activities to catch your fancy. From skydiving with a view to riding camels in the desert. And if you are into water sports in particular, there you will really enjoy Dubai. There are so many water sports activities to do in various water parks. We had a good time at Wild Wadi when we visited Dubai last year. The water rides were a lot of fun. The kiddies really so much. And the year before, we visited The Atlantis The Palm’s Aquaventure Waterpark and that was even more fun. We got on so many cool water rides/slides, the craziest being the Leap of Faith – a near-vertical drop for the bravest holiday thrill seekers.

Dubai is definitely a major tourist attraction. It is a great holiday destination and it is always the first place I recommend anyone to go on holiday. I have visited the amazing place 3 times now and I still can’t get enough of it. It is one place I can freely let my hair down and just have some fun. The weather is always good with plenty of warm weather. However it is best to avoid visiting Dubai between June and October when the weather is dead warm. Visiting between December – March is fine as it is not as warm as other months.

Dubai – My Favourite Travel Destination

Dubai is one of my favourite holiday destinations. We have visited Dubai 3 times now, and I am looking forward to planning our 4th trip. I think Dubai should be on every travel list. It is truly an amazing place to holiday. It is great for families with children as well as couples. We have visited the country as a couple and as family of 4, and we had lovely experiences on every trip.

Here are some of the reasons why Dubai is my favourite travel destination-

 

Great for shopping

The fashion lovers would love Dubai because it is a great place to shop. There is a yearly stopping festival that would suit the shopping lovers. This year it is happening from 26th December to 28th December. It is a fantastic shopping festival with loads of activities. We were lucky enough to experience the shopping festival 2 years ago. It was a great experience; one I would never forget. The amazing fireworks were beautiful to watch. And the jaw dropping bargains were great for my travel money.

A lot to see

There is so much to see in Dubai. From Jumeirah Beach, to the famous dessert, to Wild Wadi Water Parks, and the Gold Souk. There is somewhere to explore for everyone. You can’t be bored in Dubai regardless of how many times you have visited. There is always something new to see.

 

You get value for money

We get good value for money when we visit the Middle East. Some of the main tourist attraction can be a little pricey. But when it comes to things like taxis, food and drinks, and hotels, Dubai is reasonably cheap, unlike many other popular travel destinations.

Amazing weather

The Dubai weather is so beautiful. The best time to visit Dubai is between December and March. The weather is nice and warm then, unlike other months in the year where it could be unbearably hot. We visited Dubai last July and it was fun but dead hot. Almost too hot to do anything. I won’t be doing that again.
