The day's best Dubai events and other things to do in Dubai, including deals at Dubai restaurants, bars and spas, cinema releases and more.
There's simply no excuses for laziness in Dubai. With every need catered for, if you're a glutinous foodie or a glory-chasing fitness fanatic, there is, almost 24/7, something for everybody. Want films? We have the biggest releases and some of the best cinemas - indoor and outdoor - in the world. Or how about architectural marvels? Well, just look up. You're welcome. And while we might have said no laziness, if you're headed to the beach we're willing to make an exception.
To jolt you into life, here's the pick of what's happening around town today.
