Dubai duo

Both myself and my Editorial Director, Peter Stonham, had occasion to separately visit the United Arab Emirate country of Dubai over the last month.

Enjoying Dubai!

I was most impressed by the dramatic new styles of architecture emerging from the rapidly expanding new development of the destination whilst Peter found some traditional corners of Arabia nestling under the tower blocks in the old town. The ‘New Dubai’ is still working its way towards full completion; according to locals only 60% of the ambitious plan to turn the former desert country into a flourishing business and tourist destination is complete – but it is already very impressive and worth considering for a short break for your group;after all, it’s only as far as New York by air and the sun shines nearly every day!
