Nobody knows the SWISS destinations better than our staff. A restaurant that is not listed in every travel guide, an original bar, a charming café, or great tours with spectacular lookout points. Let our travel professionals inspire you with their tips.

My tip for Dubai is the Dubai Marina district with its abundance of fabulous restaurants. My favourite is the Flooka Seafood Restaurant at the Dubai Marine Beach Resort & Spa, which has incredible views of the sea.

If you can’t afford a night or even an evening meal in the seven-star luxury hotel Burj Al Arab, I recommend the tea time at its Skyview Bar. You can then enjoy a fascinating view of Dubai over a cup of tea or something sweet.

Imagine a castle built beneath the ocean and you could be mistaken for thinking it is the Atlantis Hotel The Palm. A hotel of absolute superlatives and well worth a visit. Not only is the imposing building impressive – so, too, is the wonderful Aquarium. Colourful fish, graceful manta rays and glimmering corals are all on show here. The atmosphere is unique. There's not a hint of the frequently hectic, loud city of Dubai here. A wonderful trip that transports you away to an enchanting kingdom.

A little bit of France in Dubai. This French brasserie serves up outstanding cuisine – a prime beef tartare, for example, or a sumptuous seafood platter. The best tables in the evening are on the patio, allowing you to enjoy the impressive water features of the Dubai Fountain while enjoying your heavenly meal – full of atmosphere!

I can really recommend MORE Café in the Dubai Mall. There you can enjoy an excellent and reasonably priced breakfast. And you also have a wonderful view of the Dubai Fountain, the world’s largest of its kind. At regular intervals, it explodes in a performance of light projections and music – simply fantastic! You also have a great view on the Burj Khalifa, presently the world’s tallest building.

The best way to start your weekend in Dubai is with an exclusive afternoon Brunch at the Nikki Beach, where you can enjoy fabulous sea views while sipping your lavender martini. My favourite brunches include high class seafood and tasty cocktails – as a bonus you can also take a dip in the pool if you still have energy after all the food and drinks. Once tried, you’ll never think of a brunch the same way again!
