Dubai is known as the city of the superlative. If you fly with Austrian Airlines to Dubai you can see this superlative already from the plane window. First of all there's an isle of palms and The World Dubai which are both man-made archipelagos. If you're in the city you can visit the Burj Khalifa, for example. It´s the world´s largest skyscraper at 828 metres tall. There are also many museums and theatres to visit during the day and in the evening. If you leave the city there are more destinations to experience. The Heritage Village is a replicated city of stone houses from regions of mountains and deserts, tents of Bedouins, market stands, etc., you can also go on trips through the desert which last several days.

Shopping in Dubai
Gate Village
In Dubai they take every chance of spending money. But at this point it makes real sense. In the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) everything revolves around the filthy lucre. Apart from the stock exchange various financial companies and assurance offices have their base here - accordingly you find names like Credit Suisse or Goldman Sachs on the doors.   But what to do with all the generated revenues? The question to this answer is right in front of the door. In the Gate Village you do not only find the usual mega brands but also more edgy labels: Vivienne Westwood from London or Dries Van Noten from Antwerp. Tsumori Chisato mirrors the urban landscape of Dubai. Apposite to the ambitious fashion offer many galleries for contemporary art have opened in the same area. And when the platinum card steams it's time for some cool sushi treats in the Japanese restaurant Zuma.

Stay in Dubai
Park Hyatt
The Park Hyatt is too cool to be left to the golfers only. Indeed, next to the Dubai Creek and the yacht harbour it is a paradise for golfers, but also for the bold and beautiful. Elle Macpherson, Tommy Hilfiger, Giorgio Armani and Diane von Fürstenberg have all resided in this chic hotel.   The Park Hyatt radiates serenity and luxury - from the Moroccan architecture to the elegant interior design.  And it is one of the best city hotels for business travellers who don't want to miss the beach. The view of the Dubai Creek River is especially beautiful.   In the spa Amara guests can find eight treatment rooms, each one with a little private garden and a soothing outdoor rain shower. The Traiteur offers French private dining with a well-stocked wine cellar with about 4,200 bottles for cultivated evenings. In addition, The Terrace has a good seafood counter. Rooms starting from 135 Euros.

Eat in Dubai
Exchange Grill
Only one step into this noble restaurant is enough and you will immediately see that it is one of the most exclusive restaurants in Dubai. Noble design, stately nod of the maitre, works of art on the walls, intimate lighting and soft background music radiate the elegant understatement of the Fairmont Hotel, in which the Exchange Grill resides.   The menu contains everything one can expect from a high-end steakhouse (lobster, Wagyu beef, Angus beef). The best choice is a steak. Along with it various mustard types and sauces are served on a tablet. One can even choose between a selection of several hand-made steak knives.   Who doesn't eat beef, can order fish, chicken filled with pistachios, ravioli with ricotta filling or lamb with honey crust. In addition, there is an elegant wine list to round of the delicious meal.

Sights in Dubai
Bliss Lounge
Interestingly you only find few beach bars in Dubai that are accessible directly from the elegant promenade The Walk. So far there's been Hilton's Wavebreaker Bar for casual guests, and the XL Beach Club at Habtoor Grand Beach Resorts for those focusing on polishing their image. New to the beach: the Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort in-house bar Bliss Lounge.   Entering this bar you will unavoidably think of sweets. Given the chocolate marshmallow shaped stools and the pastel cushions. In the next second - chocolate. Everything's just a question of lighting. In any case, the feet remain free from sand, since the semicircular sofa, the centrepiece of the lounge, is covered with wooden panels. In this way the sand stays at the beach of the Dubai marina, and does not get into the shoes or on the plates. On the menu for hungry mouths - be it during lunch time or at night: Asian, Spanish and Italian inspired dishes and cocktails. House music for shaking off.
