US reality TV star Kim Kardashian touched down in Dubai on Wednesday and has reportedly checked into the Atlantis, The Palm hotel.

The ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ star told her fans on Twitter that she was already impressed by the glitzy Gulf emirate, where she will front the launch of ‘Millions of Milkshakes’ first overseas store.

“Wow I'm in such awe over Dubai! My hotel is so insane, can't wait to do some blogs & show u guys! Too much to tweet! I'm obsessed with Dubai!” she wrote. 

Newly-married Kardashian had earlier told fans she had travelled on the “best plane” she had ever been on.

“Serious Sex & The City swag going on, on this airplane to Dubai! The best plane I've ever been on!!! Dubai are u ready???” she wrote.

The 30-year-old shot to fame along with her family in the reality TV show, ‘Keeping up With The Kardashians’. The hit television show has spawned several spinoffs, the latest of which features Kim and her sister Kourtney opening their boutique DASH in New York City.

Kardashian told Arabian Business last week that she wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to open a Kardashian hotel or night club in Dubai if the opportunity was right.

The star said a new business venture in the UAE would enable the family to travel to Gulf state on a regular basis.

 “I’m just excited to meet new people and see what other business opportunities are out there other than what I’ve already have got on,” she said. “Absolutely [I would look at real estate], if it made sense and there was something there.

“I’m hoping that I fall in love with the Middle East. I want to go out there all the time. I want to bring my sisters so I hope the right opportunity comes about and I’m able to really do my homework and research some great real estate opportunities or other opportunities in general,” she added.

Kardashian was named Hollywood’s top earning reality star in December, raking in an estimated $6m from her various enterprises. The star lends her name to a host of products including skincare, swimwear and also promotes the weight loss product Quick Trim.
