Travel Counsellor Kathy O’Sullivan said: “I just want to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to Dubai Tourism and Emirates for putting a great itinerary together – we had a blast!

“My perception of Dubai has changed. In the past I have just offered it as a stopover package but after experiencing what Dubai has to offer I will be confident to sell it as its own destination.

“I can’t wait to go back to Dubai with the family – or even better still a girlie break! – and sample some of that wonderful shopping and even a leisurely cocktail or two at the Address downtown.”
