Multi-centre holidays are a great way to make the most out of your holiday. Providing the opportunity to see three, five or even more destinations in just one trip, a multi-centre holiday is a great way to tick off multiple destinations from your bucket list in 2021. This unique destination is truly not to be missed.

The United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates is an area in the Middle East that consists of seven independent states:

The United Arab Emirates is situated on the Persian Gulf, between Saudi Arabia and Oman. At Value Added Travel, we have hand-picked our favourite luxurious resorts in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Ras al Khaimah to create an unforgettable multi-centre holiday to the UAE. The UAE provides the perfect escape destination for families, couples, and solo travellers alike, due to its glamour, beaches and award-winning attractions.

The UAE has an arid climate, which means that the destination is known for its extremely hot temperatures, year-round.


Dubai is famous all around the world for it’s glamour, modern transformation and super car lifestyle, Dubai is where luxury is defined. Dubai is home to impressive skyscrapers such as the Burj Khalifa, as well as some of the world’s most luxurious hotels such as Atlantis The Palm.

From exciting city life to golden beaches and fantastic shopping, a holiday to Dubai has it all, and should feature in your multi-centre break in the United Arab Emirates, if not at the top of your list.

Ras al Khaimah

Ras al Khaimah is known as the culture capital of the UAE. Ras al Khaimah provides the perfect destination for your 2021 getaway, boasting a gorgeous coastline, golden beaches, luscious greenery and impressive rock formations that date back centuries.

Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates, and boasts luxurious five-star hotels, gorgeous deserts and world-renowned shopping malls. Aside from these attractions, Abu Dhabi is home to tourist attractions such as Ferrari World where you can see some of the world’s greatest supercars, as well as Yas Waterworld, an award-winning water park: making this destination perfect for a family multi-centre holiday.

What Do I Need To Know About The UAE?

From the United Kingdom, you can expect around a 7-hour flight time. English is widely spoken in the United Arab Emirates, and the currency of the area is the Emirati Dirham.

We recommend visiting between October and April to avoid the intense heat of the summer months, and during your visit, ensure you dress modestly. It is also important to remember that different cultures and countries require different rules, so be mindful of these during your trip.
