Experience Dubai
Dubai is world renowned as an international destination for business and leisure.

Experience famous tourist destinations like Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building; relax on a pristine beach, or venture into the Arabian Desert for sun, sand and adventure. Explore a myriad of shopping, dining and entertainment destinations including Dubai’s latest most-talked about landmark, The View at The Palm; Time Out Market Dubai, where local chefs serve signature dishes curated by the editors at Time Out, or Bla Bla, a foodie beach club with magnificent views of the Dubai Eye. Try outdoor activities like skydiving, kitesurfing or the world’s longest urban zipline. No matter what takes your fancy, Dubai serves up every experience with warm and welcoming Arabian hospitality.
