You Can Fly To Dubai For Just £78 Next Month

Have you ever fancied going to Dubai but the added expense has always put you off? Well, worry no more because an airline is now offering a return flight there from London for just £78.

Yep, you read that correct... £78.

With a great deal of uncertainty remaining around travel in light of the pandemic, several airlines have been offering bumper deals in an attempt to to get passengers back onto their planes.

Wizz Air's latest deal is more noticeable than most, however, as they offer flights next month in economy class return to Dubai for less than £80.

You often can't travel from London to the rest of the UK for as little as that these days, never mind Dubai!

The trip offered would fly out from London on 9 November and first head to Budapest in Hungary where you'd have a 70 minute layover before boarding another flight to the Middle Eastern city.

It'd be a long old trip, all told with a duration of 19 hours and 10 minutes... But for £78 return, could you really complain?

Coming back, in comparison, takes a mere 14 hours, setting off on 19 November and giving you nine nights to explore the area.

And it's some area to explore, boasting one of the highest skylines in the world and working as a truly modern city.

In fact, if you need proof of Dubai's rapid development as a city then these startling photos taken 40 years apart put it into sharp contrast.

The pictures are taken from a pretty similar perspective and show that the skyscrapers, bright lights, and huge highways are incredibly recent.

Once upon a time there were only a handful of buildings, a big roundabout, and not a great deal else.

One of the few things to remain the same between the two pictures is the Toyota Building - as it is known by locals - in the foreground.

It's one of two 15-storey residential buildings that were built in 1974, just three years after the foundation of the United Arab Emirates, and it still stands there among the modernity of today.

According to the official website of Dubai Tourism, Visit Dubai: "In terms of the number of buildings standing at over 150m, Dubai ranks third in the world after Hong Kong and New York."

The website also states that Dubai has "the greatest number of buildings standing at over 300m - 18 in all and 10 under construction - making its skyline taller than Manhattan's or Hong Kong's or Chicago's."

Go on, what else are you likely to be doing in November?
