    I would spend a milli on eating the most insanely rich and fabulous food, massages and spa, spoiling my beatiful girlfriend, and a little on the camel races. I’d definitely want to enjoy Emirati cuisine and culture, as well as all the other asian cultures meeting in the melting pot that is Dubai. Just looking at the photos of Dubai makes the adventure part of my heart water. Its insane.

    PS I’d also go indoor snowboarding.

  2. Nicole T says:

    The way I would spend a million dollars is I would celebrate my 25th birthday with my fiance. Finally buy my engagement right, wedding bands, maybe even set up a future reservation for our honeymoon. But I would make sure to go to every mall, shop, bar, restaurant, club, museum, spa, anywhere and everywhere to be able to experience the culture and to make my stay the most epic stay ever. of course I would make sure to come home with gifts for my 14 month old, cause she is our world and deserves only the best that we can provide for her. Plus if I was to win this contest we would also celebrate our anniversary(ies). We haven’t been able to celebrate the past 3.

  3. Julie says:

    Wow, I don’t even know where to start, words can’t even describe what an amazing trip that would be, let alone staying at one of the most luxurious hotels in the world, having that money to spend as well!! but i’m very certain I would make fast use of the money, and make some very good friends happy as well!!

    I would spend a million dollars experiencing the rich flavors of cuisine, exploring the culture, sights, sounds… and of course I would shop til I dropped! I wanna go to Dubai!

  6. Carena West says:

    If I had a million dollars to spend in Dubai I would fly my parents over from Bahrain to join me, go on a 4WD desert safari, go crazy at the Atlantis on the Palm marine and water park, shop till my feet hurt at the Dubai Mall and Mall of the emirates, then ride camels to a dinner under the stars!

  7. fierrry says:

    I would drag my significant other to every mall, have dinner at the most beautiful restaurants, hit the local markets for local food and souvenirs and shop some more! My S/O will hate me. Lol.

  8. RS Awakuni says:

    We would shop for new items for our home and for clothes. We’d eat foods that tickle the taste buds and torture the tongue (I like spicy stuff). We’d pamper our bodies with massages, scrubs, and mani/pedis. We’d view all the cultural wonders that the city and country could provide. Lastly, we’d capture all of these adventures on video and photographs, so we could share them with our friends and family in Hawaii!

  9. Jeff says:

    I’d use the million as a down payment on a luxury submarine because everybody needs one of those )))

  10. Siv says:

    I would buy one of everything for me and favorite gal pals and sisters. It would be so much fun!

    I would spoil the hell out of the most darling man in my life because he never gets treated well by anyone but himself.

  13. Ali says:

    I would spend a million dollars on clothing, souveniors for family & friends, tech stuff, and so much more… It would all be fabulous I can assure you that — I’m an impulse shopper so if I had a million I would definitely come out on top! Enter me!

  14. Lindsay Simmons says:

    I would visit the gold Souk and buy myself some pretty shiny things, spend the rest treating my other half to a wonderful vacation

  15. Ashlea says:

    I’d throw the biggest and best party in one of their spectacular restaurants and bars while giving away the most elaborate goodie bags ever, and travel in style with brand new LV luggage on a camel’s back! Then get spoiled at their beautiful spa.

  16. kelly seward says:

    i’d bring my family with me and treat everyone to the nicest rooms, food and shopping sprees. it’s always more fun when we’re all together. although i’d make sure to schedule some couples massages and serious quality time with my man, too. 😉

  26. Peter Palamara says:

    Dubai is beyond a beautiful metropolis, its a pure lux metropolis that I would love to visit. From the Burj Tower, to check on the build status of the Ferrari Center, to the shopping , to the foods, to skiing indoors in a land of 100+ degree heat. Oh sooooooooo much to do in such a short time!

  27. susan says:

    I just moved back to Canada after being in China for 7 years, 1 of my very best friends in in Dubai, another in Abu Dabi, another in Kuwait and another in Quatar. I would love to be able to surprise them with a visit. It would make my year and hopefully it would bring a smile on their faces, when I talk with them they always sound so sad and lonely. And O YES the Shopping and eating I would spoil them.

  28. Food glorious food – I’d eat my way through the rich tapestry of Dubai, from 7-star luxury hotel restaurants to street food from vendors – and then blog about it to share my bounty with the world!

  35. Simona says:

    I would simply release free all my senses…see/touch/hear/ taste to the utmost so that I could enjoy and absorb everything around me…especially those “little” details that people tend not to notice or take for granted and usually those details are the ones that tend to leave you more astound than anything… in every room, every place so that when is time to go home….I will have spoiled myself and cherish each and every passing moment I had…. simply by closing my eyes and recalling those memories…. :)

    I would take a fleet of camels and go on a romantic picnic. After a relaxing bath in rose petals and bubbles, I’d get my hair coiffed, then hit the shops. There I’d buy a beautiful Oscar de La Renta dress – think crinoline, taffeta and rich silk, vibrant reds.
    After getting ready in my penthouse suite, I’d put on a pearl necklace, slap on some fire red lipstick and have a dinner with my beau on the rooftop. Live music, gorgeous view and moonlight kisses. That’s definitely a day of being spoiled. =)

    A design tour, for sure! I would check out all the fabulous hotels in the city and new developments.
