Dubai is 'perfect' holiday destination, says boxer Amir Khan

UK fighter delivers boost to Dubai's tourism industry, frequently posts images of his family enjoying leisure time in emirate

Dubai is 'perfect' holiday destination, says boxer Amir Khan

Dubai is a “perfect” family destination that caters to all kinds of visitors, according to one of the emirate’s most prolific celebrity visitors, British boxer Amir Khan.

Speaking to Arabian Business, Khan – who was last pictured in Dubai celebrating New Year’s Eve on the Palm Jumeirah – said that Dubai “caters for everything.”

“If I’m with my boys, we can have a good meal and go out at night, and you’ve got nice beaches,” he said. “The wife can go shopping and have nice dinners, or go out at night for a nice walk. It’s made for that.”

“For the kids – I’ve got two girls – they have access to little play schools and amazing baby sitters if the wife and I go out on a romantic dinner,” he added.

The main draw for Khan and his family, he said, is Dubai’s reputation for safety.

“That’s why I like it. My wife can walk at night and I know that nobody is going to say a word,” he said. “I know she’s safe. Maybe in another country I’d wonder whether she’s okay. I know that I’m safe, that she’s safe and that the kids are safe.”

In early December, Amir Khan was again in Dubai to announce a new role as brand ambassador for Berkeley Assets, a private equity firm with offices in Dubai and London.

Other recent photos on his Instagram account show the fighter in Dubai in November and in June.
