Those with an investment property in the UAE might be interested in the following comments.
It is no surprise that Dubai has ranked as the top winter holiday destination, remarked editor of Wanderlust Dan Linstead.
He was commenting on a recent poll by Flight Centre and said: "It's obviously been growing in popularity hugely over the past five, six, seven years.
"It offers affordable luxury [and] it's a mid-haul flight rather than long-haul flight."
He added that the emirate provided one of the most competitively priced and simple means of getting a "reliable blast" of sunshine in the winter months.
The expert said that while the location is not the most cultural of experiences, holidaymakers wanting beaches and luxury hotels would find it appealing.
Figures from Flight Centre reflected the number of enquiries received by the company, published this month.
According research by Thomson and First Choice in September, 80 per cent of Brits intend to go on holiday next year.
