WITH many of us still recovering from splashing out over the festive season and new year shenanigans a reasonably-priced ‘drunch’ is just what the wallet doctor ordered.

ONE of the region’s best-know entertainment destinations is open and greeting guests once again.
Having had the previous season cut short by Covid-19, Global Village has unveiled its 25th anniversary year with all the safety precautions that we’ve come to expect.

With multicultural themes, products and costumes at its core, the sprawling Dubailand destination is home to a colourful mix of shopping, shows, food and culture from near and far.
In fact, in spite of what the pandemic might have thrown its way, Global Village is back with an even bigger offer to the millions who usual pass through its gates each season.

VINTAGE British cruise liner the QE2 and iftar may seem an unlikely pairing at a glance.
But when you remember the Queen Elizabeth II – to give her the full title – is now resident in Dubai, it starts to make a little more sense.
THE permanent mooring of the QE2 in Mina Rashid has certainly caught global interest.
And with the restored luxury liner now open to the public as a floating hotel, it is showcasing its unique attributes by serving its version of the fast-breaking supper.
NOT content with powering one of Dubai’s best restaurants Nick Alvis and Scott Price have gone and created the kind of local pub away from home that some of us crave.
