SINGAPORE (19 November, 2014)

Agoda.com, one of Asia’s leading hotel booking sites and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), is announcing superb deals on accommodation for its first ever United Arab Emirates Flash Sale.

From 23-27 November, 2014, Agoda.com customers can enjoy up to 40% off on accommodation in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ras al-Khaimah, and Sharjah on stays from 8-24 December, 2014. These cities are four of the most popular and dynamic destinations in the desert country known for its stunning architecture, oil wealth, and dramatic desert landscapes.

Dubai is the most internationally well-known among the group, featuring a stunning mix of old and new. Maze-like neighborhoods boast beautiful mosques and souks (markets) that date back hundreds of years. Lovers of the outdoors will delight in the zoos, aquariums, parks, and adventurous desert activities. When that’s over, take shelter in the overwhelming variety of shopping available in the endless, air-conditioned malls.

Known for their excellent beaches, Sharjah and Ras al-Khaima also provide endless shopping opportunities, world-class golf courses, and a fascinating peek into the early history of the Arabian Peninsula via extensive museums and heritage areas. The bustling Abu Dhabi acts a major cultural and commercial hub, with tourists raving about the parks and standout architecture, most notably the magnificent Sheik Zayed Mosque, the sixth-largest mosque in the world. Don’t miss the Corniche, a 6km stretch of waterfront that’s perfect for a refreshing evening walk.

There are also plenty of festivals and celebrations going on in December. Everything from camel races, to F1 boat races, to the world bowling championship, to the famed Dubai International Film Festival are available to visitors, and much more.

The UAE Flash Sale is for a limited time only. To take advantage of these special prices and start an exciting vacation to the Middle East, head to www.agoda.com/UAEFlashSale.
