The Call of the Exotic

Discover Dubai, Bangkok & Phuket

Prices from R19,999pp

Alternate Text

Three holidays in one to some of the most exciting destinations on the planet creates a memorable holiday packed with picture-perfect views.

Dubai is a bright and bold clash of modern and traditional, where you can shop for gold and frankincense in a centuries-old souk in the morning and shop ‘til you drop in an air-conditioned megamall in the afternoon.

This is a city that ensures that all possibilities are endless, so on your three night city break you could soak up the sun and the fun on the beach or at one of the fantastic water parks, ski (yes, that’s right!) in the only fully-operational ski experience in the desert, take a trip up the tallest building in the world or sip a chilled cocktail on a piece of reclaimed land shaped like a palm frond. It sounds bonkers – but it’s all entirely possible!

Following Dubai you’ll fly to Bangkok, Thailand’s crazy and colourful capital. You’ll be staying in the heart of the city for two nights, meaning you’re ideally placed to go out and explore at your own pace. Take a boat trip along the klongs, a network of canals, and watch as local farmers hawk their wares on the floating markets. Take the chance to sample some exotic fruit as you glide along.

Your final stop is the island paradise of Phuket. Thailand’s largest island is an idyllic province of soft sandy beaches and swaying palm trees. You could simply lie back and relax, but Phuket offers plenty for those who like their beach time a little less horizontal. There are a multitude of restaurants, bars and watersports on offer, as well as tours into the less-visited parts of the island. The snorkelling here is excellent, so why not take a dip into the deep blue to see what you can spot? If it’s culture you’re after, explore serene incense-wreathed Buddhist temples or simply trek through the jungle scenery to spot elusive wildlife.

On this exciting holiday you can choose to be as laid back or fast-paced as you want.
