Above all, the fascinating metropolis of Dubai is like no other for a city break. It’s the largest city in the Emirates, and countless tourists visit every year. Spectacular sights such as the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, and the Palm Islands await you. About 120km north of Dubai city is the popular resort of Ras Al Khaimah. 
Also worth seeing in the Emirates, and equally impressive, is the capital and second largest city –Abu Dhabi. The city has many attractions, as well as amazing beaches. Since there are only two seasons in the United Arab Emirates – summer and winter – it makes sense to travel here during the winter months between November and April. In the summer here it can reach up to 45 degrees.Other hot destinations for your city breaks in February are Rio de Janeiro, Miami or Rome. You can also go sightseeing in Mallorca or Italy. Your trip to Rio de Janeiro will be an unforgettable one, with the famous Brazilian Carneval season in February.
