Dubai is quickly becoming the mini-break and stopover favourite for the world’s rich and famous.

With so many A-listers (and, let’s be honest B-, C- and D-listers) visiting the glittering emirate every day, we bring you a weekly round up of who was spotted where.

This week we’ve got Bollywood stars, footballer wives, YouTube stars and more…

The one and only Shah Rukh Khan was in Dubai to bring in 2016 at a New Year’s Eve party.

American YouTube sensation Bethany Mota, who basically invented the ‘haul’ video genre, travelled around the city (fitting in a bit of shopping, naturally).


Polish footballer Robert Lewandowski also came to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Dubai, taking a stroll around the Marina post-party.

4 million! Thank you! To each and everyone of you! 4,000,000 times thanks! #rl9 #rl9fans

American Bollywood star Nargis Fakhri had a run in with a falcon while on her visit to Dubai this week.

She also spent some time in the desert and went for a dip in the Raffles pool.
