Middle East and North Africa Holidays

Desert sands and sultry souks

Middle East and North Africa

The gateway to North Africa, Morocco’s mix of vibrant ancient cities and mountain-backed beaches sets it apart from your average holiday destination. There’s the rose-tinted city of Marrakech, famous for its terracotta houses and bustling, souk-lined squares, or the fabulous beaches and coastal cool of Agadir on the country’s Atlantic coast.

Looking for a getaway with a difference? Dubai’s swift development and clutch of world records (the world’s tallest tower and biggest shopping mall, to name a few) have made it the new must-see city, with a futuristic skyline of fabulous shops, world-class dining and some of the world’s finest hotels.

Further south, neighbouring Oman offers up more than desert sands with a striking mountain landscape, authentic cities and one of the world’s most beautiful mosques. 

Ras al Khaimah
Ras al Khaimah is the northernmost emirate of the UAE, flanking famous Dubai. RAK to its friends, the picturesque Persian Coast setting has the region tipped as a serious contender to Dubai’s crown.
While neighbouring emirates like Dubai and Abu Dhabi reach ever more record-breaking heights, Oman takes a step back and plugs into a laid-back element of Arab culture that can be hard to find in the fast-paced cities.

Egypt is packed full of history, culture, beaches, activities and more. From the ancient pyramids and sphinx to iconic cities and long stretches of golden sands there’s something for everyone on holidays to Egypt.

If you're interested in exploring some of the desert scenery, Ras al Khaimah is one of the best emirates from which to do so, with some fantastic desert safaris on offer.

Ras Al Khaimah is reminiscent of Dubai 20 years ago, before it became such a popular destination. This makes it a perfect little gem for a relaxing beach holiday with guaranteed sunshine. If you do still want to visit the malls, there are two in Ras Al Khaimah, or you can take a 50-minute shuttle from most hotels to the malls in Dubai.
