If you’re looking for mundane, look elsewhere. Glittery, oil-fuelled and larger-than-life, Dubai is a living testament to the fact that money can buy almost anything. Futuristic skyscrapers meet traditional markets and shopping destinations tailor-made for a short stint of retail therapy. Need a place to park your Lamborghini? No problem. Coming by camel? You’re sorted. Want ATMs that spit out 24-karat gold (why wouldn’t you?). This is the place. Get on top of the 163-story Burj Khalifa for the world’s highest city views, traverse endless sand dunes on a desert safari, and then kick back in man-made luxury at Palm Island. And that’s just the beginning.
