Flying from Dubai to RAK in a Helicopter
What’s the best way to travel around the United Arab Emirates? Hint: it's a helicopter.
We found a man with a whirlybird (that's helicopter speak for helicopter) to take us on a quick tour of the UAE, from Dubai to Ras Al Khaimah. The global brand head of Waldorf Astoria Hotels, Dino Michael, very kindly agreed to let us borrow his helicopter for the day.
Along the way, we spotted one of Dubai's newest hotels - the Waldorf Astoria DIFC - and then bumped into its sister property, the Waldorf Astoria in Ras-Al-Khaimah. Go figure!
