Middle East Gala Ceremony 2020

23 October 2020 – Dubai, UAE

Middle East


Dubai, UAE

The sun-kissed emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Dubai is the Cinderella story of the travel industry, having exploded from a sleepy fishing village into a futuristic metropolis and host of the World Expo 2020.

This dazzling desert kingdom is home the world's tallest building – the 828m tall Burj Khalifa – as well as iconic modern structures such as the Dubai Opera House.

Yet scratch beneath the shiny surface and you'll find another side to the 'city of gold'. At historical sites such as Bastakia and Dubai Creek, visitors can watch dhows weave across the water as they have done for centuries. Further local flavour can be found by strolling through the atmospheric souks or touring Jumeirah Mosque – Dubai's most beautiful mosque.

Factor in sandy beaches, intriguing deserts, luxurious hotels and super-sized shopping malls like the Dubai Mall that's also home to an aquarium and Olympic sized ice rink – and visitors have a high end, safe destination in which to boost their Vitamin D.
