It’s been just about impossible to get a hotel room in Dubai over the last few weeks. In fact I know of business people who’ve had to postpone their visits because they literally couldn’t find one room for the nights they needed to be here.
It’s the tourist season of course, the weather being perfect now and the ideal get-away from the freezing cold of northern Europe and North America.
But in addition to that we’re in the middle of the events season. We’ve had the huge Dubai Air Show, the Big 5 construction exhibition, powerboat championship at Mina Seyahi and many other events happening together or one right after the other.
Now we have the Fourth Dubai International Film Festival, with stars from Hollywood, Bollywood and elsewhere plus hundreds of producers, directors and all the other back-room people who make movies possible.
There’s plenty on that, with photos of the stars, at the Gulf News website. Here are some links:
