No longer just a sleepy fishing town, Dubai has grown to be a global metropolis. From dizzying architecture and futuristic projects to the food and traditions that still exist today, we take you on a whirlwind 72 hour trip.  





Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, relax along the way in the contemporary space of the Emirates Business Class Lounge. 

The contrast of just ripened peaches and mangos with pepper and marzipan in the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2006 can be enjoyed with goat’s cheese & emmental gougère, while the persistent intensity of berries in the Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial is matched with the red fruits in our blackberry & pomegranate macaroons. 



When you’re leaving Dubai, prepare for the next stage of your journey with all your creature comforts close at hand. Our luxury lounges offer gourmet buffets, à la carte meals, and fresh juice bars. You can have your shoes shined or take some time for yourself with a soothing spa, massage or beauty treatment. Our First Class travellers can even sample and purchase exclusive vintage wines in a private wine cellar.



Live High

Architecture is a subjective field – some people prefer ultra-modern and minimalist, while others are all about classic design – but one thing that is certain: anyone visiting Dubai for the first time can't help but be impressed by the city's skyline.

Dubai has indeed numerous attractions like underwater hotels, ski trails closed in the middle of the desert, flavored Underground Railroad, the largest shopping center in the world, rotating buildings and much else! Everything stated is the result of the vision of Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum assuming that will not have oil forever, opting instead for a few decades to turn Dubai into a world metropolis that its revenue in the future will be based on tourism.



A Shifting Culture

Ever wondered why Dubai is the destination for the world’s top conglomerates? According to CBRE, more than half of the biggest global conglomerates operating offices are present in this dynamic city. In a very short period of time, it has established its image and reputation as a vibrant and diverse destination offering quality hospitality, first class infrastructure and range of attractions.

Over the last couple of decades, the growth in financial and business services, trade logistics and tourism activity has played an important role in fuelling Dubai’s emergence as a global hub, showed by Knight and Frank in their Hub Report 2015. The Emirate is among the easiest to establish business globally. IMF suggest that UAE’s economy will outperform UK, Germany, US, Singapore and Hong Kong over 2015-2020.



Dubai is one of the world’s most exciting dining destinations, a sprawling city with unparalleled multicultural cuisine. Catering to extravagant tastes, Dubai imports a number of Michelin-starred chefs from all over the world, but know where to look, and you’ll find hidden expat eateries like tiny Szechwan diners and Pakistani canteens. 

Indian spices, Levantine specialties, Persian ingredients and the Bedouin lifestyle have all combined to influence the cuisine of Dubai. It is as cosmopolitan as the city’s culture.

If you’re planning a trip to Dubai, you need to make sure that you have a good grasp on Emirati cuisine. The food that you will find in the region will be unlike any food you’ve ever had, so you need to prepare yourself for an experience. Dubai is not short of great eateries; however, you should make sure that you find a place that suits you. To help, here is everything you need to know about food in Dubai.
