13 Things That Make Dubai The Most Elegant City In The World


When you think of Dubai a few key things come to mind: the architectural grandeur, the kind and beautiful people, the arabic culture and the breath taking scenery outdoors. One word, though, really seems to sum it all up and really captures the real essence of Dubai. That word is elegant, because there is no city in the world more elegant than Dubai. 

And since we’re talking about elegance in Dubai, we’ve teamed up with the most elegant brand there is, Lacoste, to bring you 13 reasons why Dubai is the most elegant city in the world. Because, after all, “life is a beautiful sport”.

“Graceful and attractive in appearance or behaviour”
