Dubai dream yacht trips: an unforgettable, affordable experience

Set in the exotic Arabian Gulf, surrounded by sand-dunes, Dubai is a luxurious pleasure-dome that is wonderfully obsessed with fashion and style. The sun-soaked adult playground is a constantly innovative land where soaring skyscrapers create spectacular skylines, in a city that seems to have an endless imagination when it comes to entertainment. Its futuristic appeal and audacious architecture can be traced back to the opening act of Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed al Maktoum: the World Trade Centre, which is essentially a lattice fashioned out of ivory. Perhaps an opening act that in retrospect was predictive of what was to come – the creation of one of the planet’s most fashionable destinations. Dubai burj-al-ara All that glitters is not gold… The majestic metropolis also has a rich culture, which can be experienced in the city’s bustling souks. Head into the glittering gold souk and enjoy a simple Oriental pleasure: haggling for gold. When evening falls, you can savour sunset from the vantage point of a camel’s back. Or experience another aspect of Dubai’s Bedouin culture by enjoying some falconry. Dubai culture falconry The list of possibilities in Dubai is almost endless. Sand-skiing, sky-diving, 4WD desert safaris, world-class golf, camel and horse-racing are just a few of the umpteen options.
