Dubai is hot – and we’re not just talking temperature. This city has transitioned from a humble pearl-diving settlement to a premium world destination in less than two decades – and continues to evolve at an astonishing rate. It’s as if Dubai is out to beat every world record. Visit the Dubai Mall (the world’s largest), Burj Al Arab (the world’s only 7-star hotel) and the Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building), with the world’s highest restaurant! Start your day in Downtown and marvel at the scale of the Burj Khalifa. After shopping and refreshments at the Dubai Mall, head to the man-made Palm Jumeirah Island. For a glimpse of the city behind the postcard-perfect sheen of Downtown, visit the traditional souks and winding alleys of Deira and Bur Dubai.
