Bling Bling Bling...and OMG how short can someone's skirt go...that's Dubai in a nut shell..for me...
The biggest, tallest, hugest, highest...but credit to them, it's becoming the travel central for global citizens and the pick for celebrities and gigs.
Things to do: shop shop shop shop
Wear: Anything...lots of expats and foreigners here so it looks like a multicultural euro soup mix, the girls look like they've just stepped out of a magazine, there seems to be no limit to how short the skirts can go and how high the heels can be before a major disaster happens infront of a Bentley...or a Toyota.
Stay: There are awesome hotels in Dubai, lots of new, lots of shiney, lots of 5 star.
Beware: Burj Khalifa - the tallest...highest...etc etc think about booking tickets online at least 10 days prior as you won't be able to stroll straight in...
Burj Al Arab - 7 star hotel requires you to make a lunch booking (approx 250AED) or be a guest at the hotel or you won't be able to get in
Atlantis has an awesome water park..but it's very much got a Las Vegas feel to it, so best for families, not the quiet solo business traveller.
