5 Luxurious Things to Do in Dubai
Dubai is, undoubtedly, one of the top destinations for multi-millionaires, billionaires, and the like. What does this place offer that makes them throw their cash out the window? Let’s take a look:
A Desert Safari to Remember
A lot of tourist destinations offer a desert safari of some sort in their activity packages but a desert safari in Dubai is the ultimate luxury experience in the desert. People who probably even have no idea how much money exactly they have in their bank accounts pamper themselves with helicopter transfers, opera areas on a dune at sunset, and a vast choice of supercars, of course.

A Shopping Spree
Very few places on earth offer the diversity (and lavishness) of Dubai shopping malls. If you are craving to pamper yourself with some new wardrobe additions from designer boutiques, Dubai is your obvious choice. Did you know that Dubai has over 60 shopping malls? The most prestigious among them are the Mall of Emirates, Dubai Mall, Ibn Battuta Mall, and Wafi Mall. You can even hire a professional fashion adviser to help you!
Editors’ choice: The Dubai Mall (featuring almost all luxurious brands under the sun).
Have Some (23-carat gold) Ice-cream
Now, there’s ice cream and there’s ice cream. If you are among the lucky ones who wouldn’t mind paying AED 3000 for a scoop of this delicious madness, you will enjoy your ice cream in a Versace bowl (spot on, if you ask me). The world’s most expensive ice cream features saffron, truffle, and, of course, edible gold. Twenty-three-carat edible gold, to be exact.
Sleep Like a Millionaire
Have you ever wondered what luxurious amenities sheiks have in their chambers? You can certainly get a feeling of sleeping Emirati style if you opt for one of the many luxurious accommodation options Dubai has to offer. To save you the research, here are the most luxurious (and most expensive) suites in Dubai: the Grand King Suite (Rixos The Palm), Burj Al Arab’s Royal Suite, Armani Dubai’s suites, the Presidential Suite of Fairmont The Palm, and the Presidential Suite in Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa. To name but a few!
Dine Like a Prince
Dinner is dinner, right? What can possibly make a dinner exquisite (apart from Michelin-starred cuisine, of course)? Well, think a private dinner on the Burj al Arab helipad. Now, money cannot buy you happiness, but a dinner on top of the Burj Al Arab Helipad may, at least, bring a smile to your face, right? Seriously now, if you have an unlimited budget, this is perhaps the best proposal spot in Dubai, if not the world.
