4. Abu Dhabi, UAE from £370If Dubai is just too flash and brash for you, ponder up-and-coming Abu Dhabi. Alright, it’s pretty flash and brash itself, but if lying by the pool gets tiresome, you can take the credit card out to play – shopping is something of a national pastime – or get your thrills at Ferrari World, home to the fastest rollercoaster anywhere.More: Top 10 roller coasters in the world5. Varadero, Cuba from £316Now this really is a good deal – flights to Cuba aren’t usually this cheap. Fly direct to the big resort of Varadero for a totally tropical taste of Caribbean Cuba. Varadero sits on a peninsula that sticks out from Cuba’s north side, along the coast from Havana, where palm trees, clear turquoise seas and talcum powder beaches are standard. 6. Cancun, Mexico from £379Cancún has been dubbed ‘the party city on the Caribbean sea’. But it’s not all about partying college kids from the States. The Mexican resort is a long-haul favourite thanks to its awesome white sandy beaches and tropical climate, so maybe it’s the year to give the Med a miss and go long-haul?*Prices correct at time of going to press (12 August 2013)ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Dubai?

If lounging on a beach with the latest Katie Fforde isn’t your idea of a holiday (you’re more of a traveller than a tourist, I guess?), then how about Jordan? Take a city break to trump the average trip to Paris or Barcelona, in capital Amman.2. Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt from £169If lazing on the beach/by the pool is actually right up your holiday street, then Sharm El Sheik is an easy fly-and-flop destination. The charm of Sharm, or at least one of them, is that it boasts blazing sunshine pretty much all year round, so if you need to top up your tan, it’s highly pleasant in autumn, while in winter it regularly reaches 25 degrees C. But there’s more to do than bronzing – like scuba diving in the blue Red Sea.3. Dubai, UAE from £305You don’t need to be a Premiership footballer, or ‘date’ one, to have a blast in Dubai. Yes, there are the super-sized shopping malls, stupendous hotels and plenty of ritzy, glitzy places to flaunt your bling, if you’re into that sort of thing.
