Sporting Events, Dubai's insider take:

Dubai World Cup
For many, the Dubai World Cup in March is the social event of the year, when a well-dressed crowd gathers to watch the richest horse races in the world (and, of course, to party). Aim to get a space in the Makhtoum stand if you're a racing enthusiast, but if you're here for the party, head directly to the Bubble Lounge to fill up on Champagne alongside the socialites. You can also book a suite with a view at the Meydan Hotel overlooking the refurbished race track.

Dubai Desert Classic
Watch the world's top golfers as they tee off at the Emirates Golf Club during the Dubai Desert Classic in February/March, part of the European PGA Tour. Insiders ensure they get invitations to one of the lavish hospitality tents, the Emirates Airlines tent being the hottest ticket around.

Dubai Tennis Championships
Despite the caliber of player—Federer and Nadal, for instance—at $8 for the early rounds and $27 for the finals, the Dubai Tennis Championships in March/April is a very reasonably priced event. Be warned: The seats aren't numbered, so it's first come, first served for the best views of the courts.
