Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius. -Mark Twain
Mauritius is a fascinating island. Some describe it as a world-on-one-island place. A hypnotic blend of Indian, Chinese, African, French and British influences, Mauritius is a dazzling Indian Ocean destination that enchants nearly all who visit. It combines idyllic white sandy beaches and azure waters, luxurious resorts with a lush tropical jungle island interior, diverse culture and many activities to partake in. You could spend all your free time lounging on the beach and indulging in its distinctive Creole-inspired cuisine or you could spend the day out and about, visiting some of the many picturesque villages and public beaches, trying your luck with some sport fishing or exploring the beautiful botanical gardens. Mauritius today is one of the wealthiest countries in Africa, a successful, multicultural society where the friendly co-existence of peoples and religions expresses itself in croissants for breakfast and curry for dinner, and brightly painted Indian temples sitting alongside French colonial mansions.

Dubai is like nowhere else on the planet. Often claimed to be the world’s fastest-growing city, over the past four decades it has metamorphosed from a small Gulf trading centre to become one of the world’s most glamorous, spectacular and futuristic urban destinations. Dubai’s ability to dream (and then achieve) the impossible has ripped up expectations and rewritten the record books, as evidenced by stunning developments such as the soaring Burj Khalifa, the beautiful Burj al Arab and the vast Palm Jumeirah island are testament to the ruling sheikhs’ determination to make the city one of the world’s essential destinations for the twenty-first century.
For the visitor, there’s far more to Dubai than designer boutiques and five-star hotels. If you want to step beyond the tourist clichés, however, you’ll find that Dubai has much more to offer than you might think, ranging from the fascinating old city centre, with its higgledy-piggledy labyrinth of bustling souks interspersed with fine old traditional Arabian houses, to the memorably quirky postmodern architectural skylines of the southern parts of the city.
