Dubai & Thailand

Thailand's popularity in the UK is unrivalled among Far East destinations and twinning it with Dubai is an obvious choice


mirates has daily services to Bangkok and Phuket from its Dubai hub and travelling through the emirate can

add a new dimension to a trip to Thailand. Heading to Thailand via Dubai allows

travellers from the UK to split the long-haul journey to Thailand into two medium stints of roughly six or six and a half hours each, while also enhancing the entire holiday experience. A twin-centre package with Dubai has huge potential and great appeal. Combine the white sand beaches of Dubai's Arabian Gulf with the island beaches of the Gulf of Thailand; or mix Dubai's glitzy designer malls with the colourful markets of Bangkok. When combining Dubai's dynamic city attractions with a tempting Thai beach remember the beaches at Pattaya and Hua Hin don't require another �light beyond Bangkok, and Emirates also has a direct service to Phuket.
