Located in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is now one of those “bucket list” places people must cross off and see. For those that don’t know, and have this idea that traveling to an Arab country should be avoided like the plague (Thanks Trump) – it’s simply because they don’t know how westernized it is. In fact, it’s more than that. Dubai is like an island unto itself, as there’s nowhere else in the world to experience such extravagance and riches. Dubai isn’t the icing on the cake, it’s the 24-karat gold encrusted topping. There’s just so much to see, do, and experience and Dubai, we literally need about 18 pages to list them all. And, well guess what … you’re in luck as that’s exactly what we have for you here. We guarantee that by the time you’re done reading, you’ll have already booked your flight to Dubai!

Get Arrested In A Lamborghini

Ever wanted to know what it’s like to ride in a Lamborghini, but never got the chance? Well in Dubai, if you can’t afford to buy or rent one, try stealing one – and hope you get caught. Because when you break the law over there, the police take you away in a Lamborghini as that’s the official squad car of their police force.

Withdraw Some Gold

Only in Dubai can you find yourself short on gold, go to an ATM, and withdraw some more. Now I don’t know why you’d need to take out physical gold while away on a trip, but apparently if you were interested in buying a white tiger, the handlers accept gold. Go figure.

Play Some Sky Tennis

Everything in Dubai is over the top. Like, way over the top as in, over the top of every other building. Yes, if you’re looking to squeeze a couple of tennis matches in during your trip, you’ll literally be playing on cloud 9, as that’s how high the courts are.

Starbucks Made For A King

You know your local Starbucks back at home? Well compared to Dubai, it’s like a complimentary water to a mocha frappuccino, as Starbucks in Dubai goes venti on the royal treatment. After all, they are serving royalty there. So take a seat on one of their thrones and enjoy the free Wi-Fi.

Stay in a 7 Star Hotel

When you think of luxury hotels, you often hear them ranked by stars – 5-stars for the most lux. But of course Dubai has to top that and construct the world’s only 7-star hotel. And how much exactly do 7-stars cost? $18,000 a night – that’s how much. But you can bet it’ll be the best stay in your entire life.

Go Skiing in the Mall

If swimming with sharks isn’t your thing, then why not try some skiing in the mall instead? Heck, even if you’re not into skiing you can take a break from the blistering heat outside and enjoy the cool -4 degree celsius temperatures.
