I do not like horse racing one bit. However, I do like to people watching, drinking and having fun with friends. This is a blast for all of that. This event is very Dubai. Over the top and maxed out on bling and people showing off their wealth. What a blast. If you are going to go, make sure you... More

Dress up to the nines, socialize and drink! - Arguably one of the best days out in Dubai. We were in the Apron Views section; Moët Chandon area. It's expensive: 320AED entry plus 600AED minimum per bottle of champagne. Wish there were healthier food options. LOVED JLo as the after race entertainment! Advice for ladies: wear comfortable shoes!!!

Nothing suits Dubai like the Dubai World Cup. Being the Worlds richest Horse Race, the World cup entices all lovers of horse racing together. From the entertainment, the racing, seeing the best jockeys in the world and the whole ambiance all in one. If your in town during the end of March, you have to book your tickets early and... More

This massive event lives up to the hype! The atmosphere is fantastic and everyone makes a great effort on the day. Not being to actually bet at the venue is bizarre but easy to circumvent. Overall, the overriding feeling is one of enjoyment and that people are there to have a good time (which is not always the case at... More

The atmosphere, the electrifying positivity in the air - Dubai out does itself every year. It seems like one big party, celeb watching and dressing up to the hilt all a part of it. Event not to be missed.

2012 world cup, we paid for the 1200aed tickets for VIP seating and all inclusive (food and drinks). This is no means the most expensive package but never the less not cheap. We should have gone with the 300aed seats. The food was inedible, cheap and poor quality and variety. Dried out spring roles, sad sandwiches and rock hard scones... More

This is definitely the event of the year! We've been several times and its fixed in our calendar as its so much fun. Forget the horse racing, just go for people watching, champagne and a good old fashioned knees up!
