Dubai

Dubai is part of the United Arab Emirates(UAE), a country located on the East coast of the Arabian peninsula. Dubai made its fortune over the last decade through its vast oil reserves, and more recently is trying to diversify its economic activity. Finance and tourism are two industries in which Dubai is investing heavily, especially through various projects that made headlines around the World. Numerous world class hotels have been built, and entire new islands are being created to provide real estate opportunities. Some of them are truly spectacular. Dubai is also aggressively trying to become a major tourist destination, for example by providing a world class airport-hub for travel among various continents. You can fly to Dubai airport with Austrian Airlines.

Burj Al Arab
It simply has to go onto the personal photo motif list: the Burj Al Arab. Meanwhile, the landmark of Dubai (opened in 1999) has become a familiar object due to its frequent depictions. It is a peculiar building, like a giant sail soaring 321 meters in the air. Architecture and luxury are still groundbreaking.   The interior design seems to arise from Arabian Nights and the service is tailored for a demanding clientele. There is a reception on every floor and the guests can check into their suites discretely. Naturally the Burj Al Arab has only suites with 170 to 189 m2, thereby providing enough space for neat relaxing or even a spontaneous waltz.   Moreover, it goes without saying that an armada of butlers is ready at any time. And in the beauty realm customers who have already seen everything can order a caviar mask. Rooms starting from 720 Euros.

Shopping

Al Ghurair City
The history of the mall goes back to the year 1983. Back then the Al Ghurair family opened a mall on a lonesome piece of countryside. It was the first modern shopping mall of its kind in the Middle East and in the course of a couple of years it had set new sales standards.   Today the building is encircled of the surrounding urban construction development. And inside the business is still striving. The offer includes high street fashion by French Connection, Guess, Esprit, Baby Phat Farm, Splash and La Chateau.   In addition the Paris Gallery offers designer pieces by Givenchy or Dior, trendy brands like Aldo or Claires Accessoires and leatherware by Nine West, Charles & Keith and Milano. Interesting for the curious ones: local designers like Majestic, Louloua and Verona present their collection in jazzy colours and luxurious fabrics in Al Ghurair City.

Majlis Gallery
She came, she saw and she bought. When Allison Collins from England came to the emirate in 1976 she actually wanted to do development assistance. But then the interior architect fell in love with the city, bought a run-down mansion and founded Majlis Gallery in 1989.   Already at the entrance you feel the landlady's creativity and hospitality. Jazzy colours, earthy wood and details that were arranged with much love catch one's sight. In an intimate and personal atmosphere she presents smaller and bigger exhibitions of local and international lay and professional artists.   The art works are not only there to look at, they can also be bought. Ranging from jewellery to postcards, the offer will please every art and design fan. There are even pieces of furniture up for sale: French armchairs with elegant fabric covers, dressers with Arabian patterns and sideboards made of precious wood. Thus it'd be best to arrange a minibus before your visit!

360 Degrees Bar
The 360 Degrees is not only a bar, but a sight which should be on each and every must-see list. The name says it all and keeps what it promises: an impressive panorama view over the Burj Al Arab and Dubai's skyline. The disc-shaped deck quasi hovers over the restaurant Marina and is connected to the shore by a pier. Hanging around casually is not possible, the 360 Degrees is unobtrusively cool.   Chic, sophisticated, bathed in the light of the evening desert sun. It is the perfect place to get rid of the stress of daily business life. The following relaxation instruction is very recommendable: Glide into one of the comfortable white leather-sofas, order a hookah plus cocktail (or maybe two or three), listen to the house music of the live-DJs and keep your face towards the sunset. As the saying goes: Life can be a pleasure, too.
