Dubai is one a wonder of our modern times and an exciting place to visit. There are enough events in Dubai to keep even the hard to please travelers busy and having fun.
Dubai is renown for its quality restauranteering and has many five star restaurants. There are no Michelin Star restaurants because there is not yet a Michelin guide for Dubai. However, there are many Michelin Star chefs that work in the city’s restaurants. For example, the Indego restaurant at Grosvenor House Dubai has a Michelin Star winning chef in the kitchen. When you want a break from fine-dining, you can grab a milkshake from Millions of Milkshakes. These are only two of the many great eateries and it is always fun to discover your own favorite eating spots.
Dubai at night is visually spectacular, the city lights up the dark. It also has many venues for evening entertainment, one of which could likely become a favorite place. There is a BBC radio 1 DJ who sets the stage for a good dance party, or the world famous ‘We Love Space’ Ibiza venue at the Trilology where the dance floor literally vibrates with music and movement.
