A warm walking holiday in February and how to see Dubai’s stunning Miracle Garden: The Holiday Guru solves traveller queries
The Holiday Guru is always on call to answer your questions.
This week package tours of Dubai and where to go for a warm walking holiday in February, are on the agenda…
Q. My husband and I would like to spend February in a warm climate where there are good walks. Where would you recommend we go?
Louise Reid, Aberdeen.
Alicante may bring to mind beach breaks, but there are superb walks to be had in the mountains
A. Alicante may bring to mind beach breaks, but there are superb walks to be had in the mountains, just 15 miles from the Costa Blanca, and temperatures can touch 20c in February — so it’s the ideal weather for walking.
Inntravel offers seven nights with hotels and luggage transportation from £695 pp (0165 361 7001, inntravel.co.uk). Return flights from Aberdeen start at about £110 (ryanair.com).
Q. Do you know of a package tour to Dubai that also includes a visit to the city’s Miracle Garden?
Angela Wills, Long Melford, Suffolk.
Entrance to Dubai’s Miracle Garden costs £11 and it’s open from mid-November to mid-May
A. There are no specific package tours, however it is easy to book a hotel/flight combination with Emirates Holidays (020 8972 8949, emiratesholidays.com) and then arrange independently to visit the gardens. The attraction is open from mid-November to mid-May, and the entrance fee is £11 (dubaimiraclegarden.com).
A week-long break with Emirates, staying at the Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort, costs from £1,165 pp, including flights.
