Arabia & Indian Ocean


Fast-paced Arabia contrasts with a laid-back way of life in the Indian Ocean isles.

The Arabian Peninsula has grown substantially to become a leading holiday destination with so much to offer. Big and bold hotspots such as Dubai contrast with yet undiscovered gems such as Ras Al Khaimah and Oman.

Scattered across the Indian Ocean lie some of the most pristine islands which certainly deserve the description of paradise. The Maldives have been heralded as ‘heaven on earth’, while Mauritius is often referred to as the ‘star of the Indian Ocean’.
