Hello, March…

Another Sunday strikes again and this one takes us into March. We know, we can’t quite believe it either. Another week in Dubai means there’s plenty for you to do, from an afternoon tea to a cool ladies’ night or beach day, so get these things to do in the diary.

Here’s our pick of eight great things to do in Dubai this week…

Sunday March 1
