13 Things That Make Dubai The Most Elegant City In The World
When you think of Dubai a few key things come to mind: the architectural grandeur, the kind and beautiful people, the arabic culture and the breath taking scenery outdoors. One word, though, really seems to sum it all up and really captures the real essence of Dubai. That word is elegant, because there is no city in the world more elegant than Dubai.
And since we're talking about elegance in Dubai, we've teamed up with the most elegant brand there is, Lacoste, to bring you 13 reasons why Dubai is the most elegant city in the world. Because, after all, "life is a beautiful sport".
“Graceful and attractive in appearance or behaviour”
"An elegant idea, plan, or solution is clever but simple, and therefore attractive.”Cambridge dictionary
1. The people – graceful, attractive and kind
2. The Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world
Majestic. If this isn’t elegant then nothing is.
3. The Dubai Metro – swift and efficient
The elegance is in its simplicity. It's one clean line, no mess.
4. The Sporting Facilities – clean and unparalleled in quality
Ok, so you can’t actually play on the top of the Burj Al Arab but if you want to know where the best tennis spots are, here are six.
5. Multiple nationalities in one place – living in harmony with each other
Everyone accepts each other and are tolerant of other cultures and traditions. "Graceful and attractive in behaviour".
6. The garden in The One & Only Royal Mirage
The simple elegance in this hotel certainly takes your breath away.
7. Nature in Dubai – The Dubai Desert
Elegance is born from its breathtaking beauty and wild spirit.
8. The Al Qasr drive way – tasteful and striking
Grandeur and charm all in one.
9. The Talise Spa In The Burj Al Arab – smooth splendour
And serene views.
10. The cars – new and old
From vintage originals to the most up-to-date driverless vehicles. Dubai is always thinking towards the future and of its people.
