If it’s opulence you’re looking for, Dubai certainly delivers. This metropolitan jewel of the Middle East is where both traditional Arabic hospitality and luxury amenities are built into its very fibre. The golden coastline is home to pristine and well-managed private beaches that overlook the glimmering waters. In-land, keen golfers can practice their swing at one of the many world-class golf courses. And for fashion lovers there is Dubai Mall, the largest shopping centre in the world.
