Quite apart from the luxurious facilities for tourists, Dubai has firmly established itself as the hub of logistics too, providing a handy port of call for cargo ships and planes from all over the world. This flow of goods from almost every country on Earth has seen Dubai become the place to buy just about anything from high-end electronic goods, to furniture, to precious metals (the gold souk is a veritable Aladdin’s cave of the gleaming metal, sure to raise wonder in the minds of all who see it!) Visitors, whether there on business or for pleasure (or even both) can shop lavishly as prices are kept low, and transportation is easily and effortlessly arranged.
The plentiful amenities and accommodations available have seen Dubai becoming ever more popular as a business getaway destination. Dubai is home to the world’s only 7-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab which provides a chauffeur service with its distinctive Rolls Royce fleet, boasts an indoor skiing experience (an unnerving experience after the 40°C heat outside!) and offers an enormous range of activities for the even the most jaded, worldly-wise traveller. Needless to say, the hotels have vast experience at hosting business events, from board meetings to conferences, easily catering for the delegates and visitors in all matters, from the supply of stationery and equipment to supplying perfectly prepared food and drink on demand.
If you’re traveling to Dubai, get the most out of your visit. Plan each day with almost military precision and be make sure that you’re in perfect health as you won’t want to waste a single minute of your time in Dubai! Schedule meetings and business arrangements for the mornings, if possible, and allow yourself at least a couple of hours in the afternoon to explore and see the sights. Some of the wonders to behold include the fabulous Palm Islands (and the newer World islands), man-made stretches of land, designed and constructed to exponentially expand the coastline of Dubai, the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, standing a staggering 829.8 meters tall and the Dubai mall, which contains an aquarium, ice-skating rink, a staggering array of shops and stores and many other features fitting of the largest mall in the world.
You may return home from your business trip exhausted and starved for sleep, but you’ll also be energized and awed at having seen and experienced the best that Dubai has to offer!
