For those without budget limits, Dubai is the perfect city. For those who want spend on your budget choice.
For those without budget limits, Dubai is the perfect city. A sort of Montecarlo desert, for those who want (and can) spend, there is only the embarrassment of choice.
For those visiting the city for the first time, a nice helicopter tour is what it takes. You fly low on skyscrapers and, from the sea, you can enjoy a splendid panoramic view of one of the most Instagrammati skyline in the world.
Of all the most bizarre buildings, one stands out, the tallest of all. It is the Burj Khalifa , the tallest skyscraper in the world . You can climb to the top, but by not queuing up with all the tourists, you book the lounge on the top floor and a hostess accompanies the rich and lucky visitors up to the top. Here guests are welcomed with a flute of Champagne and delicious finger food trays. On the 122nd floor you can also have lunch or dinner at Mosphere, one of the most iconic restaurants in Dubai and offering one of the most amazing views of the city from above.
Dubai is a metropolis, but it is also a seaside resort and there are many beaches to go, with super- private establishments where there are gazebos and poufs on the sand. Among the most fashionable is Nikki Beach, where you can spend the day and even the evening, because every day here is a party. But the most exclusive address for sunbathing is the infinity pool of the Burj Al Arab terrace , the iconic sail-shaped skyscraper, the one that also has a helicopter landing strip on top and which houses a seven-star hotel, one of the few in the world. Recently it is also accessible to those who do not stay at the hotel at the basic daily rate of about 420 euros per person.
To be sure to meet Sheikhs and celebrities on holiday in the Emirate (there are always plenty of them), just have breakfast in a bistro that recalls a corner of Paris : La Serre, where you have to book the table in time because the request is long. Or in the lush garden overlooking the artificial lake of The Farm, considered the best restaurant in Dubai for breakfast.
In Dubai there is no shortage of Spas. The most luxurious ones are located inside the hotels so you are spoiled for choice. But for those with no portfolio problems, relax in the hammam of the Talise Ottoman Spa in the mega Jumeirah Zabeel Saray resort, where the signature treatment costs 600 euros.
In the Emirate there are some of the most famous restaurants in the world, from the Armani to the Enoteca Pinchiorri, from the Bulgari to the Cipriani, just to mention some of the best known. Voted as the most romantic restaurant in all of Dubai, Pierchic offers a breathtaking view of the gulf and the best quality seafood in town. With the booking, a private transfer service is included, which, from the hotel reception, leads directly to the pier where the restaurant is located; it will seem to have been catapulted to the Maldives.
Behind Dubai there is the desert Infinity Unable to come here and do not visit it. The coolest experience is not the classic camel, but a chic safari in the dunes of the Sultan Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktum private reserve in a vintage Land Rover. The Platinum Heritage that organizes this experience also thinks of the aperitif at sunset based on typical dishes of the Emiratina cuisine, in one of the exclusive tented camps.
In Dubai, in short, you can make unforgettable experiences and give vent to their fantasies. Just have a Platinum Visa.
