Dubai and Phuket Multi Centre Holiday

Make the most of the pairing of bustling city life and a laid back beach break on our Dubai and Phuket multi-centre holiday. Shop until you drop at some of the world’s most impressive malls in Dubai, followed by plenty of time spent lounging in the sunshine on some of Thailand’s most luxuriously golden, powdery beaches. 

Immerse yourself in two very different cultures and lifestyles on our multi-centre holiday in Dubai and Phuket. Experience the delicious tastes of two contrasting cuisines, making this multi-centre a must for foodies with a taste for variety. Don’t forget to sample Manousheh – Dubai’s famous take on pizza, as well as Pad Thai – arguably the most popular dish on offer in Thailand’s popular restaurants. 

On this thrilling trip you can enjoy both the thrill of a busy, glamorous city in conjunction with a calming beach stay to help you re-connect with nature. It is the perfect balance, guaranteed to make for a wonderful holiday that you won’t be quick to forget. The perfect time to plan your Dubai and Phuket getaway is any time between October and April, when the weather is certain to be at its finest in both destinations.

Phuket, Thailand is the perfect complement to the initial city excursion of this multi-centre holiday, as it adds balance and relaxation to your getaway.

Indulge in a soothing Thai massage or make your way to Phang Nga Bay for glorious views and the opportunity to really make the most of the area’s tranquil beach life. Keep an eye out for the sharp limestone karsts that jut out of the shimmering waters, and be sure to stop by James Bond Island. It is so named due to its starring role in the ever popular James Bond film, The Man with the Golden Gun, originally released in the mid 70s.

Spend the evening exploring Phuket Old Town, which promises the opportunity to get to know the Thai culture a little bit better. It boasts a magical mixture of colonial and Chinese architecture, as well as a wide variety of quaint, traditional restaurants and some of the island’s most impressive retail stores.
