Another busy week in Dubai!  New Dubai Harbour announced, Sheikh Zayed bin Mohammed turned 5 and the Meydan Gold Cup Carnival kicked off.  What did you do?  And where did you go?  January is normally a quiet month!  Not in Dubai.  There’s a lot more to come.  James Bond Exhibitions at the Burj K, 24Hr Racing at the Dubai Autodrome and we are in the middle of DSF.  Why not keep updated on all the best things to do around Dubai.
