Immersive art, self-love and happy hours…

Dubai is full of fantastic deals and plenty of things to do this week. Valentine’s Day falls this week, which for some means a romantic dinner on Tuesday evening, or an out-of-this-world experience as a gesture of love. For others, the week carries on as usual, but we have you covered either way.

Monday, February 13

Immerse yourself in Vincent Van Gogh’s art

Van Gogh, one of the most influential figures in the history of Western art will be on show all of February at the Theatre of Digital Art.

Check out the newest Atlantis The Royal restaurant, Ling Ling

Arguably one of the most luxurious and opulent hotels to open its doors is slowly (but surely) opening its restaurants to the public. A must-try is Ling Ling which officially opened its doors last week. Serving contemporary Asian cuisine, Ling Ling sits pretty on the 23rd floor of the hotel where you can dine to your heart’s delight.
