Thanks to its plush business districts, world class amenities and global accessibility, Dubai has emerged as one of the top financial centres of the world. With easy access and connectivity to the rest of the world, it has everything on offer to make for a successful business centre. But what is that one criteria that makes a city truly global and tourist friendly? The answers may vary from person to person, but it would definitely have to be a city that offers something for everyone.

Dubai is definitely a city of all work and all play with a range of fun activities for the business traveller. From meetings with start -ups and established dignitaries, to sports that facilitate networking such as golf and squash, business is never boring in the city.

2. Dubai Creek and Golf Club
Golf and business deals go hand in hand. Ask any businessman and he will tell you how golf courses provide just the right atmosphere to make decisions and move things forward within a relaxing setting needed for deliberation. Overlooking the Creek & Marina, the Golf Club in Dubai is just the right place for that specific purpose. When in Dubai, put on your Golfing shoes and get ready to make new business out of a fun session of competitive play. 

3. Jumeirah Emirate Towers
With 56 floors, it is the world's third tallest all-hotel building.

4. Aston Martin Showroom 
It is a place that equally appeals to both car lovers and the Bond fanatics.

Get a glimpse of these British mean machines that have formed a lasting love affair with another British icon James Bond. The perfect ride for a three piece suit.

5. Squash
Dubai's hot and arid weather conditions may not be well suited for outdoor sporting activities but as far as indoor sports is concerned, it is truly a haven. There are a number of squash courts in the city which are not very expensive and offer equipments and gears on rent. Just grab a racket and hit the court with friends and associates. If staying in Dubai for a long period, you can also take part in leagues and tournaments for a bit of competitive sport.
