Transformed virtually overnight from desert to mega-city, Dubai is known as the best cosmopolitan city in the Middle East and is truly like no other.
My favourite time to travel Dubai would definitely be the winter months from November through until Spring as the summer heat can be scorching. Dubai is perfect for escaping the cold UK winter and makes the perfect cruise and stay combination or overnight in port.
Socialise, Dine, Relax
My favourite places in Dubai would be JBR (Jumeirah Beach Residence). This place always has a great atmosphere especially during the evening. It boasts beautiful luxury hotels, restaurants and spas. It is extremely popular with locals and western tourists. You can find traditional Arabic restaurants and luxurious boutique shopping on JBR. The Ritz has probably one of the best Spa’s in Dubai. After your massage you can relax on their private beach – bliss! Don’t be surprised to see the all the super cars around each corner. Aston Martin , Lamborghini, Bugatti all parade up and down JBR. Lamborghinis are even used by the Emirati police.
Try high tea at the Burj al Arab – the world’s only 7* hotel. Enjoy a trip to the desert and experience the thrilling dune bashing or sand boarding. If you enjoy excitement and new adventures then I would definitely recommend a sky dive over the PALM.
