SEEING THE WORLD FROM ABOVE: SKYDIVE IN DUBAI
© Skydive Dubai
Imagine soaring like a bird over Dubai, seeing the Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest tower – and iconic Palm Island below you. It would be an exhilarating way to explore the Emirate and would certainly impress friends and family back home. Challenge yourself to a sky dive and experience the thrill of leaping from a plane thousands of meters above the shore, with the warm wind whipping past you at 210 km per hour. The best time of year to take your leap of faith is from September to May, when weather conditions are perfect. Take your challenge from Skydive Dubai, situated right on the Palm Jumeirah with its own 260,000 meter shoreline drop zone. Spectacular views and the thrill of adventure await all who dare take to the skies.

INSPIRED DESIGN AT SOFITEL THE PALM
Visitors to Dubai will be dazzled by Sofitel’s brand new, Polynesian-inspired resort and spa on The Palm Jumeirah.
Sofitel Dubai The Palm's unique design is the work of Mahnaz Liaghat, Design Director of MIRK and one of Dubai’s top designers. In this exclusive interview with Alice Johnson, she explains the inspiration behind the resort's Polynesian concept – and reveals the secrets of how she has created a lush, green, vibrant environment that invokes the feel of a traditional Polynesian village.
THE SYMBOLISM OF POLYNESIA
Throughout Polynesia, a respect for nature and a love of organic forms have been creatively woven into striking, traditional symbols for decades. These symbols all have specific meanings and designations, especially for the Maori populations of New Zealand.
