2016 Dubai Rugby Sevens

Dates: 1st Dec to 3rd Dec 2016

And let the games (and the fun) begin.....

Aside from the extremely high and world class rugby on show, Dubai Rugby Sevens is also an excellent day out for the entire family. The tournament has over the years built a strong community around it. 

This year South Africa emerged the well deserved winners of the men's title. The Blitzboks claimed the top spot after they beat last last season's series champions and Olympic gold medalists, Fiji, 26-14.

Meanwhile England managed to come into third place after a remarkable 33 -1 0 win over Wales.

A journey through history - Ibn Battuta Mall

Over the last decade, one of the landmarks that has always held a special place for me is Ibn Battuta Mall. While malls in Dubai are normally flashy and glitzy, each one attempting to out do the other on the glamour quotient, here is a mall that brings history and culture to the fore. 

Ibn Battuta Mall is probably an intriguing journey of the region's culture and the journey of a young man and adventurer Ibn Battuta. His travel over 24 years spanning various lands is an extraordinary story depicted in the 6 courts that make up the mall. The walls and ceilings of the mall are adorned in intricate designs and architecture to depict each leg of his journey. 

While the mall provides an excellent shopping experience with round the year offers and deals, it is highly recommended that you set some extra time to explore the story of Ibn Battuta as you walk across the mall.

@Faz3 sets Instagram on fire

A photo shared by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum on Instagram is taking the internet by storm. With out 110,000 likes within a couple of hours, the picture shows the Crown Prince of Dubai seated in the London Underground. In the picture he is in the company of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The picture speaks a thousand words about the leadership of Dubai. At a time when UK struggles with the results of the recent Brexit referendum, the timing couldn't have been better. The picture sends out a strong message to the world. The evolution of Dubai over the last 2 decades into one of the greatest cities in the world has been phenomenal. This evolution points the world to the vision, courage and ambition of Dubai's leadership in shaping the destiny of the city while also shaping the destiny of millions of citizens of the world. The timing couldn't be better and I hope this photo inspires the leadership of UK over the next few weeks and months.
