You will be in awe of all that Dubai can offer you. In one single spare afternoon, you could shop, ski and sunbathe before you head back to the airport!
Here is a quick guide to what you should pack into your business trip to Dubai if you possibly can.
Sample the heights of the Burj Khalifa
It doesn’t get any higher than the tallest building in the whole world! This is one to tell your colleagues about when you get back home. The Burj Khalifa is an engineering achievement like no other. At 828 meters, it soars above the Dubai skyline. In total, there are 160 stories but you should take the high-speed lift to one of the of the two observation decks on the 124th or the 148th floors where you can see right out to the desert.
Make the experience unforgettable by getting myconcierge to arrange a viewing during the fountain show or even a meal in the restaurant-bar on the 122nd floor. They will source the best deals for you and give you the best advice for your trip. They can arrange for you to head off on a trip to the Burj Al Arab where you can really see how the millionaires spend their time in Dubai. Afternoon tea here is an experience not to be missed.
Go on a shopping spree
Will your family expect you to return home bearing gifts? In that case, your trip must include a visit to the infamous Dubai shopping mall.
If you like to relax by wandering around luxurious stores in a lovely environment, this is for you. It is the perfect place to retreat from the punishing heat of the day. In fact, the air conditioning is so fierce, you may need a jacket. Set aside a full day for exploring it if you can because there are so many shops. You will be spoiled for choice. There is a full 1.1 million square meters of retail space and entertainment attractions for you to explore!
You should find the perfect gift for every member of your family in one of the 1200 retail outlets where you can pick up anything from Armani to Zara and toys to food. If you want to take a peek at what the millionaires of Dubai are currently spending their cash on, take a glimpse at the Versace and Alexander in the fashion quarter. Then just have a seat and watch the shoppers pass by you.
The Dubai Mall is not just for shopping. You can meet colleagues for a snack or a drink or even have a go at skating in the Dubai Ice Rink. If you have never been skating in the dessert, now is the time to try!
