About Dubai

Average flight time: 07hrs

A blend of strong traditions and modern innovation dripping in evocative splendour (and bling!), this is a city that really has it all.

The sheer ridiculousness (is that even a word?) of what this city not only dreams up, but actually creates is awe-inspiring and quite literally a sight to behold from its world famous hi-rise hotels to the outrageous and sublime man-made palm islands.

This is also a shopping haven with two annual shopping festivals not to miss. With incredible mega-malls that offer an experience far beyond the mundane of simply browsing from store to store. Visit a Persian palace or Italian palazzo, go skiing at the indoor slope or check out the giant aquarium. Want more tradition, head to the souqs for some old-skool bartering and keep an eye out for future developments, they're popping up all the time, so blink and you might miss them.

The Scoop: Singapore

Futuristic, cutting edge, hip and innovative mixed with traditional and multiculturally-infused: its an expansive, complex melting-pot of a city. Expect to see packed-out temples sitting alongside reflective sky-reaching, sci-fi-esque hotels and office blocks resembling gardens in the clouds. And then there's chic and boho shophouses serving all the latest edible and drinkable treats you can imagine, next to vast, maze-like "food malls" with tiny booths serving restaurant-worthy, shockingly...

Could windowless planes bring down the cost of air travel?

Airfares are at an all time low, but further price reductions could be in store if windowless planes take off. Yep, you heard right - a plane without windows. The concept has been proposed by Emirates CEO Sir Tim Clark, who has recently introduced virtual windows for some first class passengers aboard the airline's new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The new virtual window shows a high resolution image of the outside of the aircraft via fibre optic cables, which are, apparently, better...
