Find out why Dubai is Merridith’s all-time favourite.

Having lived in Dubai, I can attest to the sheer scale of luxury this city embodies, captivating you from the moment you arrive. There is a real cosmopolitan vibe, as white sandy beaches are juxtaposed with ultra-modern architecture that always leaves me feeling awestruck. You almost feel like a member of the glitterati as you peruse high-fashion designs, beautifully presented in the Dubai Mall, a place where I can be lost for hours. A definite highlight of my trips to this Emirate state is the food. For a fun and authentic experience, I highly recommend Aprons & Hammers, who serve the best crab and lobster around, atop a traditional dhow boat. Dubai has an adventurous spirit, where you can take advantage of the year-round sunshine whilst dune buggying across the desert or taking in sights of the gulf from a hot air balloon.
