Even on a budget, there are a number of great countries that people in the United Arab Emirates can travel to on holiday without breaking the bank.
One of the easiest places to get to for a quick break is Oman.
UAE tourists do not even need to get on a plane in order to take a trip to Oman – they can either drive there or go by bus in Dubai.
In a car, the travel time from the UAE to Muscat is around six hours, but the long journey is more than compensated for by a country filled with gorgeous landscapes, fascinating historical sites and one-of-a-kind Arabian architecture.
Oman is a country of contrasts with spectacular oases, beautiful beaches and desert sands.
Another great escape destination for those in the UAE is Georgia.
Georgia is an inexpensive destination that is a three-hour journey away from Dubai and can be accessed without the need for a visa.
Georgia has some incredible historical landmarks as well as amazing local cuisine and people who are warm and welcoming to visitors.
Anyone in the UAE who fancies getting out of the heat for a while should head to Georgia.
One of the most inexpensive travel destinations in the world is India.
This beautiful country bursts with colours and flavours, with warm people and a fascinating culture.
India is also vast, which means that it has plenty of options to choose from in regard to places to see and activities in which you can take part.
Azerbaijan is a country that should be on everyone’s list of places to visit, and particularly people in the UAE.
Referred to sometimes as the ‘Land of Fire’, this country mixes modern and ancient architecture and is situated very close to Georgia.
In fact, the two countries are so close together that anyone who is travelling to one could then easily go and visit the other.
Azerbaijan offers incredible weather and truly impressive scenery.
During the winter season, the country also offers some terrific skiing opportunities, making it a ‘must-visit’ destination all year round.
Turkey is another great travel option for people in the UAE.
This country can be expensive or cheap to visit depending on exactly where in the nation you choose to go and what activities you decide to partake in during your stay.
Turkey offers delicious cuisine, incredible architecture, the mosques of Istanbul, covered markets and souqs.
You may even decide to try out a hot air balloon ride in the central region of Cappadocia.
Wherever you decide to go on holiday outside the UAE, it is important to make sure that you have travel insurance coverage in place before you go.
Travel insurance is designed to make sure that you can enjoy your holiday without worrying about what could go wrong.
It offers financial protection in the event of you losing your valuables or your flights being cancelled.
