Dubai - basking in luxury

Ah Dubai, the city weâ€™ve all heard and read so much about lately. Being here, the city is all that, and much more! Dubai is a city of excess and extravagance. With the worldâ€™s only 7-star hotel (albeit self-proclaimed) Burj al Arab, the worldâ€™s highest skyscraper Burj Dubai (it literally is twice the height of all the surrounding skyscrapers), the soon-to-be-completed largest mall in the world, the 3 Palm Islands in the works (one of which is mostly complete and buildings have started going up already), and the World Islands, Dubai has done all it can to flaunt itself as the ideal hub in the middle east. With all the infrastructure and luxurious amenities in place, it is not hard to see why Dubai is rapidly becoming one of the top vacation spots in the world!
After landing, I was greeted by the chauffeur and taken to the villa.
I spent the otherwise quiet evening sneaking into the golf course and driving some golf balls into the river and sitting in the pool recovering from the many days on the road sipping Hennessy. Definitely canâ€™t complain about the first day in Dubai.
