For me, it’s an amalgam of things. The way that people from all walks of life can feel at home here. The way that the city is always striving to make the impossible possible, all while inspiring its residents to do the same. The way that with each new season, Dubai becomes a magnet for exciting new concepts, from world-class international hotels to homegrown restaurants. But I know that Dubai’s versatile appeal means that everyone has their own reasons for falling in love with this remarkable city. Never, in my eight years of living in Dubai, have I seen so many people looking to make the move to this ever-changing land of opportunity. In fact, a report earlier this year by Henley & Partners forecast that the UAE is expected to welcome 4,500 new millionaires this year alone. And with those specific newcomers in mind, we present our ultimate guide to living your best money-no-object, oh-so-boujee life in Dubai. We know that there’s more to this city than Beyonce-approved penthouse suites, James Bond-style supercars and multi-thousand Dirham set menus. But there’s no denying that Dubai’s blowout experiences add to the city’s star power. So whether they’re part of your day-to-day life, or you fancy living like the 1 per cent for the day, our ‘Only in Dubai’ guide to once-in-a-lifetime experiences is waiting for you on p17. This issue also pays tribute to another clique of hard to impress individuals – the no-nonsense instructors behind some of Dubai’s toughest training sessions. From calorie-busting HIIT classes to core-crunching Pilates, meet these gym class heroes, and their grueling workouts, from p29. Enjoy the issue,
