Travel in Style
With marked speed limits going up to 120 km an hour, but speed cameras only working up to 240 km an hour, we hear you either go 120 or over 240 km an hour. What better way to speed around Dubai than by luxury sports car. You can rent them from a few different places including VIP Luxury Car Rental that even offers chauffeur service if you want to leave the driving to someone else.
Party at Nikki Beach Dubai
Nikki Beach clubs are known for attracting celebrities and VIP guests to its international locations. With its latest beach club now open in Dubai (March 2016), Nikki Beach Dubai is set to continue this trend. Located on Pearl Jameira, next to Nikki Beach Resort & Spa, you can enjoy globally-inspired cuisine while keeping the champagne flowing.
