Meals on wheels in Dubai: Gourmet Bus to provide posh nosh to sightseers

It’s meals on wheels Dubai-style.

A tour operator plans to offer sight seeing trips around the city while tourists tuck into five-star international cuisine.

The double decker Gourmet Bus will hit the streets next month according to Alpha Destination Management.

“Dubai will be the first city in the world to have this kind of unique service for the tourists,” said general manager Samir Hamadeh.

Punters will be served up the posh nosh on a journey that starts from Downtown and takes in Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, Zabeel Palace and the Burj Al Arab.

Tour operators are ballooning across the city as Dubai’s tourism industry booms, with 13.2 million tourists visiting the city last year alone.

Tourism is expected to expand by between 7 to 9 per cent annually, according to Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing.
