Rita Ora has touched down in Dubai ahead of her performance at The Global Teacher Prize concert, and she looks to be enjoying her downtime in the emirate.

The UK-based popstar will join Liam Payne and Little Mix to perform at the Dubai Media Amphitheatre on Saturday evening in an annual celebration of outstanding teachers from around the world.

The 28-year-old arrived in Dubai on Wednesday, and has been enjoying some of the city’s top attraction.

On Thursday, she took to her Instagram account to share videos from a visit to Dubai’s IMG Worlds of Adventure, saying she felt like “Richie Rich” during her visit to the indoor theme park.

“That was crazy,” she said, after getting off one of the park’s rollercoasters. “Thank you for the incredible adventure, it felt like we were the only people in there.”

She was also lucky enough to catch a firework display as she left the park, sharing a video with her 14million Instagram followers.

The RIP hit maker is no stranger to Dubai, and has performed at Redfest DXB in the past.

Ora is not the only celebrity currently enjoying the UAE’s attractions. The Greatest Showman star Hugh Jackman has been relishing the Dubai desert, posting videos of himself with Summer the falcon and taking part in some dune buggying.

The Australian actor said he was here to prepare for a “performance”, leading to much speculation he may join Ora on the line-up for the Global Teacher Prize concert. Jackman is an ambassador for the organisation, and his co-star from The Greatest Showman, Loren Allred is also set to perform. Watch this space!
