A genuine holiday is a precious thing to the 40-hour a week commuter. Sometimes a mere week off can seem an impossibility for exceptionally busy people. The working population is finding it increasingly difficult to leave deadlines behind when going away; some even have to cut holidays short for fear of falling behind at pivotal points in their career. Increasing in popularity, however, is the combination of the two - making a holiday for business and pleasure at the same time. Dubai is simply a wondrous city full of flamboyance and character. From the Hatta heritage village in Shindagha to the vibrant metropolis of towering glass buildings, guests used to big cities and business life will fit easily into this eastern paradise.
If you find that it’s time to get away, but to also set some needed hours aside for work, there are many perfect locations around Dubai in which to base yourself from. Take the 4-star luxury hotel in Bur Dubai- The Majestic Hotel Tower
