Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa looks set to lose its status as the Emirate’s tallest building with the ground breaking of a colossal new construct starting today.Situated in Dubai Creek Harbour, ‘The Tower’ will reportedly be 100m taller than the iconic Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building at 828m) and will be surrounded by a typically decadent expanse of nine lifestyle districts, with hotels, a yacht club and a specialised marina and harbour.The design is the creative brainchild of Santiago Calatrava Valls, a Spanish architect who can lay claim to the .....Chicago Spire Tower and Calgary Peace Bridge.  As the video below illustrates, The Tower’s impressive viewing deck will offer 360-degree views of the city, alongside a VIP observation garden replicating the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.Video of The Tower at Dubai Creek HarbourThere isn’t long to finish the ambitious project, however, with the unveiling planned ahead of Dubai’s hosting of EXPO 2020.Three towers trying to break Burj Khalifa’s recordSky Mile Tower, Tokyo, JapanThis proposed mega building is set to be an incredible 1,700 metres tall; we’ll have to wait a while to see it, though, as the year of completion is estimated to be 2045.Jeddah Tower, Jeddah, Saudi ArabiaIf completed as planned, this tower will surpass the Burj Khalifa and stand at one kilometre in height.Burj Mubarak al-Kabir, Kuwait City, KuwaitThe Burj Mubarak al-Kabir is set to hit 1001 metres in an allusion to the collection of Middle Eastern folk tales, One Thousand and One Arabian Nights.  Show less

When things get a little hot in Dubai (read: every day) then make sure you head to Ski Dubai. If you haven’t heard of this place yet you can probably work it out – it’s a huge ski dome in the middle of the desert. Yes, when it’s 50+ degrees outside you can play in the snow at -2 degrees. And we’re talking about real snow here people not just a dry ski slope! Even if skiing isn’t your thing then there’s still plenty for you to do at Ski Dubai. The Polar .....Pass gives you access to the ski dome where you can go bobsledding, tobogganing, go in a zorb or ride the ski lift to the top of the slopes. For me, I absolutely loved Ski Dubai. It is so surreal at first going from the blazing heat outside to the freezing cold inside, but it is an amazing experience and definitely a must on any trip to Dubai. This really is one of the most fun things to do in Dubai. Show less

Distinctive exercises enable you to get a more intensive take a gander at the ocean life. Glass base vessel visits (over the tank) are especially well known.

If you don’t get chance to see the windtowers by the Creek, this is your next best opportunity. The Madinat Jumeirah is a vast replica Arabian village with canals, luxury hotels and indoor souks. For 50 AED, you can go on a canal cruise in an abra for probably the best views and photo opportunities in Dubai. Our guide showed us some of the best and most expensive hotel rooms as we went past the Mina A’Salam, and were told this was where Tom Cruise and his entourage stayed when filming Mission Impossible .....Ghost Protocol. You’ll get a glimpse of the symbol of Dubai, the Burj Al Arab hotel. Shaped like the sail of a dhow and gleaming brilliant white in the sunshine, this is out of reach of your average holidaymaker, unless you like paying around £2,000 for a night. You can’t even enter unless you’re staying there or have a reservation to eat or drink. I was told off for getting too close by a guard in a hut on the approach road to this self-proclaimed 7* beauty set on its own island, but not before I managed to take this photo of an approaching Rolls Royce. We were sad to eventually leave the paradisical Madinat Jumeirah, and headed up the road to see one of Dubai’s best public beaches, Kite Beach. Here we plopped on the soft golden sand before taking a dip in the warm bath-like water of the Persian Gulf. Show less

It stands at a staggering height of approximately 30-45 metres above the ground.The Midstory This is the middle layer of the rainforest, where trees commonly have large leaves in order to absorb any sunlight filtered down through the canopy.

This time for some old school fun. It seemed like a lifetime ago I was playing Alex The Kid and Sonic The Hedgehog on my Sega Master System, and when we heard about Sega Republic in Dubai I had a teen-era flashback. You remember those nights you would hit the video game arcade in an attempt to win a stuffed toy for your girlfriend/boyfriend/friend/yourself (lets be honest, it would have been for yourself), thrashing your friends in a car race or winning as many tickets as possible all so you could .....trade it for a shiny plastic ring from the shop that you could have bought for 50 cents anyway? This is Sega Republic, but with a twist. Near KidZania is this TimeZone (or Chuck E Cheese minus the pizza) cross Times Square Theme Park. A two level, 76,000 sq ft indoor complex featuring 14 thrilling attractions and more than 170 games, from cutting-edge motion simulators and virtual experiences to one of the region's largest assortment of skill and redemption games. On top of all that they also have a soft playground area for the kids spread over 300 square metres set on four different levels. This area is completely supervised and contained so you can leave the kids to play while you go have some adult play time… gaming, that is. We picked up a day pass to spend on the rides and tried most of them. Somewhere between childhood and hitting 30 I seemed to have lost my equilibrium and found the thrill rides a little nauseating. Back when I was a teen they would have been thrilling. Gee, I must be getting old. Show less

One of the best beaches in Dubai is Kite Beach, which is famous with tourists and locals alike. Many beaches in Dubai are private, belonging to families or to resort hotels. While free beaches are not guarded, public beaches that cost a fee are guarded at all times. Dubai’s waters contain coral reefs which make this a wonderful scuba diving or snorkelling as well. Give the following beaches a try: JBR Beach, Al Mamzar Beach Park, Ghantoot Beach, Umm Suqeim Park Beach, Mercato Beach and Jumeirah Open Beach.

As I write this post on the plane (Emirates A380 actually, you can read my Business Class review here >>>) I have Iranian saffron in my luggage. I am fully confident I will be allowed this into New Zealand, as I brought Turkish spices home last month. But so excited was I at the price, I bought 2 lots. Saffron is made from the stamen (stigma) of the crocus flower and there are only 3 red strands per flower. You can imagine how many flowers have to die for a .....bright yellow risotto. In the spice market in Istanbul, it was going for 25 Lira per gram (about $15). Here in Dubai I paid about $3 per gram. At the Spice Souk in Dubai you’ll find imported spices from all over the world, as well as frankincense from Oman, tea from India and that saffron from Iran.

Not only is Abu Dhabi the capital of the United Arab Emirates, but it’s also made a name for itself as the rising star of the international art scene. Arriving at the airport is a spectacle in itself: surrounded by golden desert dunes, you’ll feel as though you’ve landed on another planet. Dig a little deeper and you’ll find that Abu Dhabi offers a seriously out-of-the-ordinary experience.  Kick-off your trip with a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, located between the airport and the Corniche. This Mughal and Moorish-style mélange .....is truly a sight to behold, made even more show-stopping by its trademark 82 domes and sky-scraping minarets. Once inside, the interiors are just as jaw-dropping. Evocative of stories from The Thousand and One Nights, expect serpentine arabesque shapes and glimmering shades of gold and white, set off beautifully by the flashes of light trickling in from the outside. The best bit? Chandeliers bedecked by thousands of Swarovski diamonds and the largest carpet in the world, painstakingly hand-woven to glittering effect. Show less

Like we previously mentioned, Hysteria is a plot-driven experience. As it goes, the haunted house is owned by a family who has mysteriously lost their children in the middle of the night.

Both violent crime and property crimes, such as theft, are rare in Dubai but not unheard of, according to the State Department. Observing basic common sense should keep you safe: Keep an eye on your property, lock your car and hotel room and be aware of your surroundings while you are out. Sexual harassment and assault of women is a growing problem; if you are victimized, report it to the U.S. consulate in Dubai. Women can lessen their chances of harassment or assault by traveling in groups and adhering to .....Dubai's cultural expectations of modest dress: no short shorts, short skirts or sleeveless tops. The State Department also advises women to avoid sitting in the front seat of taxis and chatting with the driver too much, which could be misinterpreted as a form of propositioning. Areas that are slightly more prone to crime include Nayef, the Grand Market at Al Refa'ah, the Global Village at Ras Al Khour and Al Satwa. Show less

Dubai is located within the UAE, a Muslim country, and many of the rules of etiquette come from this very fact. Dubai is known for its warm and inviting cultural atmosphere and visiting most Mosques is definitely possible for tourists. One of the many factors to remember is during special times of year such as Ramadan where many things are not allowed during the festivities for example eating and drinking in public. Ramadan is considered to be one of the most exciting and greatest times to visit Dubai to understand its .....cultural and strong religious ethics. Non-Muslims do have designated places to eat and drink throughout this time and many hotels and shopping malls remain open. Show less

Public affection is minimal in the country. Hugging and kissing in public is not allowed but holding hands and perhaps a peck on the cheek is fine. But it is urged that a person should be careful about the openness of physical relationships in public. The use of photography is also something to bear in mind. Taking pictures of government buildings, airports etc should be avoided and talking photos of locals, especially women, should be respectfully sought. Dubai may have many cultural aspects to carefully regard, as do many countries in the .....Islamic world, but it is definitely a place that is stunning, modern and deeply rooted in traditions. It is a Mecca for shoppers and holds some of the most luxurious hospitality in the world. Show less

Such world-class facilities and innovations have made Dubai a huge hit with people from across the globe, with a report at the Gulf News citing that the city welcomed more than 12 million overnight international visitors across the first nine months of 2019. However, a huge number of people have also taken the step of making Dubai and the UAE their home. The UAE population stood at 9.2 million in 2013 with expats accounting for a massive 7.8 million of those living in the region, according to this Guide to Dubai. With .....people from India, the UK and many more countries calling the area home, cities like Dubai are truly multi-cultural and offer a diverse range of experiences. But what has drawn so many people to a city like Dubai? While the aforementioned facilities and attractions certainly make it an exciting and vibrant place to live, another element that many people enjoy is the quality of life. Last year, global consultancy firm Mercer undertook research assessing the well-being of individuals in a range of areas based on factors like housing and education, and The National tells us they ranked Dubai as the highest-rated city in the Middle East. Many factors may have influenced the result, but one which may have particularly helped could be the tax situation in the country. Put simply, residents do not pay income tax in Dubai although it is worth assessing your own situation and getting advice if you remain a tax resident of another country. Show less

Dubai doesn’t look like a destination with beautiful beaches. Besides, when visitors come to Dubai, they either want to go up the Burj Khalifa, visit the aquarium, shop at the Dubai Mall, or explore the deserts. However, the city actually has numerous beautiful beaches.  The most popular beach is the Jumeirah Beach Park and its ideal for kids thanks to its garden, playground, barbecue areas, cafés, and lifeguards.

Marcela, the lead designer, took us on a personal tour of the facility. Here, a unique piece of jewelry goes from create, to make, to sell, all under one roof. The process starts with a 3D printer making a plastic prototype which is then used to make a mold for the metal pieces. Skilled craftsmen take the process through each step, patiently and meticulously preparing each piece by hand.

There were a variety of fascinating time pieces. One amazing piece in particular caught my eye. Called CLOCKCLOCK 24 by Humans, it was made up of 24 cutout circles with small moving black bars. At each minute, the bars lined up to show the time. In between, the bars moved in semi-unison until the next minute when they showed the time again.

At the front of the shop, bags and bags of burlap filled with cocoa beans were stacked high, waiting to be hand sorted. The cocoa beans are sole sourced directly from the farmers in seven countries: India, Madagascar, Cuba, Vietnam, Papua New Guinea, Ghana and Indonesia. The beans are hand sorted for size and then roasted on .....site – low and slow. Once nibs are separated from the husks, they are ground in small batches using granite stones. The rest of the ingredients are then added and the mixture is conched for seven days in small, 30 kg batches. The batch is then aged for 6 weeks to bring out the flavors, before a final temper, molding and packaging. Show less
