Sheikh, Rock and Roll in Dubai
Travelers wanting to live Henry David Thoreau’s transcendentalist visions will not find them in Dubai, a city known for extravagance in every way. Dubai is home to an indoor ski resort, the world’s only 7-star hotel, and the world’s largest mall. Its airline, Emirates, features gold-plated seats and on-board showers. If you are looking for a way to get in touch with your inner hedonist, then a trip to Dubai is a must. Dine underwater at the exclusive Burj al-Arab Hotel, take a helicopter tour of the surrounding islands, and shop till you drop at the Mall of the Emirates. For an age-old tradition, go for the Falconry Experience in the Arabian Desert.
