Most people don’t like Dubai very much. I lived there for a year – and I think it is possible to be surprised by the city. It’s all about knowing where to go.

Bastakiya in Bur Dubai has some lovely art galleries and has an incredible atmosphere. The local museum there also does a guided tour of the area.

The views from the tallest building in the world (when I visited) are pretty decent. But I think a drink at the Address’s bar (right next to it) is actually more fun.

Don’t forget to go to the Madinat Jumeirah – and do try and book a table at one of the restaurants. This means you can take a boat there – one of my favourite reasons to go! My favourite vegetarian restaurant (ever) is here – its called Magnolia.

More later – does anyone want an itinerary?
