Here are three things to include when visiting UAE…
With countless restaurants covering every taste you can think of, dining in UAE is an absolute pleasure. The cosmopolitan nature of the region has resulted in some of the world’s best chefs setting up shop there, with numerous award-winning eateries for you to take your pick from. Many take advantage of the stunning location, offering a setting with breath-taking views, including Ray’s Grill. The UAE is a real culinary tour de force and one to be sampled at the earliest opportunity.
There are no fewer than five pay and play courses sprinkled across the exceptional UAE landscape. All of them are top quality and some act as hosts for European or PGA tour events. If this doesn’t act a sign of what to expect, what does? As you’ll quickly come to expect with the region, the standard is very high. Carved out of the desert or hugging the beautiful coastline, these course offer a golfing experience unlike anything found in the US. One to track down in the Els Club in Dubai. Designed by Ernie Els himself, he took inspiration from his favourite courses around the world to create a truly world-class facility.
The UAE is a visual feast so it pays to take in as much as possible. Modern, seemingly physics-defying architecture sits alongside ancient religious building offering a unique but beautiful mix of textures, design and style. There are a host of tours on offer allowing you to see everything worth seeing in one go. At night, the region transforms, with the cities lighting up, giving them a whole new look.
Away from the metropolises, a desert safari is highly recommended. Explore the endless dunes via 4x4 or quad bike and even spend the night under the stars.
