Dubai, UAE; July 2, 2011: Holiday Factory is pleased to announce the most affordable summer deals for the UAE residents to escape the scorching summer season and chill away in Istanbul, Prague, Paris, Maldives and Thailand. These are one of 23 destinations in Asia, Europe, Indian Ocean and the Middle East that Holiday Factory offers this summer.

Holiday Factory offers affordable deals for its customers with prices as low as AED 1290 to Turkey, AED 2500 to Prague, AED 3700 to Paris, AED 4,500 to Maldives and AED 2580 to Thailand, making it 35-40% cheaper.

He continued, “During the present difficult times, customers are more judicious in choosing their holidays and look for one that fits in their pocket without compromising on quality. We received an astounding positive response from customers for our introductory offer to Istanbul as it’s unheard of for a deal of AED 1290 to include return flights, hotel, return airport transfers, services of a tour representative and all taxes. This has encouraged us to extend our offer for travel between 17th and 31st July with the same price”.
“Istanbul, Prague, Paris, Maldives and Thailand are one of the most attractive travel destinations the hotels are carefully hand-picked. Get there and enjoy your summer holidays without regrets”, he added.
Istanbul is one of the world’s most fascinating cities with a colorful and complex history spanning the centuries. The Old City is its historic heart, founded by the Emperor Constantine. Here stand the museums, the Topkapi Palace, the basilica of St Sophia, a wealth of fabulous mosques including Sultan Ahmet (the Blue Mosque) and the Suleymaniye. The only city in the world to be located on two continents it’s one of the world’s greatest cosmopolitan cities. It’s exciting, bustling and intensely alive with a vibrant nightlife. Istanbul can also be laid-back and relaxed, with tranquil corners where you can sit and watch the world go by, catch up on reading, sip sweet coffee or apple tea, or enjoy the ultimate serenity induced by a Turkish bath.
Prague – City of Castles
A holiday in Prague is like being transported back into the late Middle Ages. The views are unforgettable: the golden roofs, the floodlit castle from Charles Bridge, the National Museum at Wenceslas Square and the fairy-tale gothic spires of the old town. Take a stroll around the Old Town Square studded with Baroque, Gothic and Romanesque architecture; it’s surrounded by a maze of narrow streets filled with jewellery shops. Climb Petrin Hill by foot, or by its funicular railway. This 318m hill with eight parks is topped by a 62m version of the Eiffel Tower where you can take in fabulous city views. Prague Castle is possibly the largest ancient castle complex in the world; it’s dominated by the huge Gothic façade of St Vitus Cathedral, famous for its stained glass.
Paris - City of Light
Paris is one of the most popular and enduring tourist destinations in the world. Few cities in the world deliver such excitement and romance in such a compact area. With its broad tree-lined boulevards, iconic monuments, chic boutiques, elegant stores and remarkable museums, it has something for everyone. No two visits to this wonderful city need ever be the same. The Paris metro has 400 stations making it easy to visit Paris’s iconic sights such as the Place de Concorde, Champs Elysee, Arc de Triomphe, Sacre Coeur and the Eiffel Tower. Another great way to see the city is to take a river cruise down the Seine on one of the glass topped “Bateaux Mouches”.
The Maldives are one of the least spoilt areas in the world today and are home to some of the best kept secrets of the Indian Ocean. Deep down in the depths of its vast blue ocean lie the psychedelic reef formations surrounding the islands. They are alive with a multitude of marine life! Its small islands are lush with tropical vegetation which gives shade from the sun. The beaches are powder white and their sandy softness invites along with the blue lagoons that stretch for seemingly endless crystal-clear miles. Of the 2,000 islands, which make up the Maldives, only 200 are inhabited including those selected few which have been made into holiday resorts. Each island is comprised of one hotel, its facilities and nothing else. If you need a day away from Island life then try a day trip to Male, the Islands capital.
Just over a two hour drive from Bangkok, Pattaya is one of Thailand’s favorite seaside resorts and attracts up to five million visitors every year. The half-moon-shaped Pattaya Beach is four kilometers long with a road running parallel to the beachfront. As well as a great place for sunbathing, you’ll also find plenty of water sports including windsurfing, scuba diving, water skiing, parasailing and jets skis. For a day out take a boat to some of the surrounding smaller islands or, take a trip to the national park and glide through the jungle canopy via three kilometers of wire zip lines and scenic sky bridges.
The largest island in Thailand and Asia’s most popular beach destination, the “Pearl of the South” offers everything you need for a great vacation whether its world class diving in the Andaman Sea, a round of golf on a world standard course or just days lazing around the pool or on pristine sandy beaches Phuket has it all. Kata and Karon both have miles of sandy beaches with a large variety of restaurants, bars and shops and are just a short bus ride away from Patong, the first resort area to be developed on Phuket. For a day away from the island take an exhilarating speedboat trip to the surrounding islands, or enjoy a scenic cruise around mystical Phang Nga Bay, where James Bond Island and Koh Pannyi are just two of the more famous spots in this bay.
