Ramadan

raMaDan

aL gaFFaL DhoW raCe

27 May - 25 June 2017

13 May - 20 May 2017

Ramadan, the period of mental, physical and spiritual elevation, is celebrated throughout the world. Indeed this auspicious time is also honoured in Dubai, as the city obliges later operational timings and an extra emphasis on charity and quality time with loved ones. Activities peak in the evening as observers break their fast with their families, and Dubai’s plethora of eateries come to life with dedicated menus and even purpose-built marquees with special food and entertainment. Even for those not fasting, this is a wonderful time to learn more about Emirati culture and traditions.

The Al Gaffal Dhow Race commemorates the early history of Dubai’s evolution into a trading port through the pearl divers. It is one of the most beautiful sailing races, as up to 100 traditional dhows with white sails glide through the water. Each dhow is 18.3 metres long, and from afar, the sight is magnificent. The race is unique in that the crew must be completely composed of Emirati nationals. You can get closer to the action by following the race in a water ferry, or watch as the dhows sail in to the finish at the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel. The race will take place on 13 or 20 May, depending on the wind and weather conditions. hp://dimc.ae/

DUBAI 29 oCToBEr 2017 | ArmANi HoTEL dUBAi Many theories have been proposed as to the origin of the word "Dubai". One theory suggests the word was used to describe the souq, which was similar to the souq in Ba.[19] Another theory states that the name came from a word meaning "money", as people from Dubai were commonly believed to be rich due to the thriving trading center of the location. An Arabic proverb says "Daba Dubai" meaning "They came with a lot of money." According to Fedel Handhal, a scholar on the UAE's history and culture, the word Dubai may have come from the word daba (a past tense derivative of yadub, which means "to creep"), referring to the slow flow of Dubai Creek inland. The poet and scholar Ahmad Mohammad Obaid traces it to the same word, but to its alternative meaning of "baby locust" due to the abundant nature of locusts in the area before selement.

VENUE Armani Hotel Dubai The first word in luxury, the last and most of those in between, Armani Hotel Dubai – the debut hotel from fashion designer Giorgio Armani – occupies 10 of the 160 floors in the iconic Burj Khalifa. Accommodation consists of 78 rooms and 82 suites, which come in 11 different sizes. Regardless of which room you plump for, expect floor-to-ceiling windows, bespoke furnishings, king-sized beds and iPads that control everything - from the 40-inch flat-screen televisions to the curtains, lighting and front door. However what really sets the Armani Hotel Dubai apart is its dedication to personalisation: every guest is assigned a personal butler-concierge whose only goal is to ensure you are spoilt non-stop. www.armanihoteldubai.com

GETTING THERE The main airline, Emirates have daily flights from most destinations around the world. There are a number of other international carriers that you can choose for your trip. Most European citizens, as well as US, Canadian and Australian don’t require a UAE entry visa. For other countries it is easy to obtain a visa within just few days of submiing the application with an airline or hotel. LEGAL REQUIREMENTS FOR GETTING MARRIED IN DUBAI AND THE UAE The UAE offers several options for geing married but depending on your nationality and residency status, geing married in Dubai can range from straightforward to time consuming and complicated. Certain conditions must be met and there is a strict procedure and timeline in which paperwork must be submied. However, if you are unable to meet the legal requirements, a popular option is to legally marry in your home country and then celebrate your wedding in Dubai with a symbolic ceremony or blessing. OvERvIEW • At least one of the parties must have UAE residency to legally marry in the Emirates. • There is a set procedure and paperwork for Islamic marriages which differs from nonIslamic marriages. • The procedure and paperwork for non-Islamic marriage’s varies depending on nationality. • Residents can get married at the Dubai Court or Abu Dhabi Judiciary. • Non-Muslims may not marry in the Dubai Court • Marriage of non-Muslim residents may only happen in their embassy (if allowed), church, temple etc. • Certain countries allow their citizens to get married at their embassy, and even accept one party to be from a different nationality.

DUBAI WEDDINGS DUBAI WEDDING vENUES When geing married in Dubai, or indeed any of the Emirates you need to keep in mind the strict alcohol licencing laws. These laws are just one of the reasons why ninety nine percent of couples choose to celebrate their wedding with a hotel ballroom evening reception. With an abundance of luxury five star hotels, all offering excellent services and fantastic sceneries, it is difficult to suggest one specific venue. However, when choosing your reception venue my advice would be to think about the type of atmosphere and experience you would like for your wedding in Dubai and try to match this with the venue seing. DUBAI WEDDING SETTINGS Popular wedding seings and venue choices include geing married at: • One of the many beach resorts • Downtown hotels, where you can have a full view of Burj Khalifa and singing fountain • A desert resort in a traditional Bedouin camp for a unique and exotic wedding • Other wedding venue options include the golf or polo club, or even on Abu Dhabi’s Nurai Island, a five star private island, recently voted by Conde Nast Travel Magazine as one of the most incredible private islands. It is important to note that all of the above venue options are allowed to serve alcohol. Although less common, it is also possible to organise a wedding in a private villa or yacht.
