Dubai & Seychelles Twin Centre Holiday with tour of Meydan racecourse

This 10 night twin centre itinerary allows a brief introduction to Dubai followed by a chance to discover the nature, wildlife & landscapes of Seychelles, staying at the boutique Hotel L'Archipel on Praslin Island. Wgile in Dubai, we've also included a special excursion to the world famous Meydan racecourse - home of the Dubai World Cup - and to it's stables and equine facilities.

On this holiday of contrasts, you'll have the opportunity to discover many of the man-made wonders of Dubai that make it such a talking point. However, Dubai's fascinating heritage also awaits discovery, including Deira and Bur Dubai districts beside Dubai Creek and the atmospheric gold and spice souks. The JW Marriott Marquis is located in the downtown area of Dubai, so is perfect for discovering everything about 'old Dubai' as well as convenient for seeing its multitude of new sights, including the Burj Khalifa, the new Dubai Opera, and 'out of town' attractions such as dune safaris or even a tour of the amazing Dubai racecourse and equestrian centre.

In Seychelles, Hotel L'Archipel is a perfect boutique hideaway. With cottages dotted around its picturesque tropical gardens, many with stunning views over the Cote d'Or bay, it's the perfect base from which to explore the fascinating island of Praslin. From small coastal villages, walks and treks, stunning beaches around almost every turn, plus the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Valle de Mai - the national park where the Coco de Mer nut grows - the largest seed in the world. Praslin is also convenient for visiting other smaller outlying islands, including fascinating La Digue as well as some which are national reserves and home to rare and endemic species of birds and giant tortoises
