The Spanish cuisine fans will enjoy the traditional paella, while lovers of Greek food will fawn after dishes such as kleftiko and spanakopita.

Brand-new mega-attraction, Deep Dive Dubai, broke the internet recently as everyone from HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to Will Smith (and What’s On) paid a visit. The 60-metre deep pool, which comes complete with an epic sunken city, welcomes visitors of all abilities, from those who have their PADI course, to beginner divers or even those who wish to snorkel on the surface of the water. Once the world opens up, we predict visitors  will be coming from far and wide across the globe to get a slice of the action. It is now open five days a week.
