Will Smith is back in his ‘favorite city,’ Dubai

Will Smith shared a photo from the sea, cruising around Dubai with the iconic Burj Al Arab in the background.
DUBAI: Hollywood actor Will Smith is back in Dubai and is having the time of his life.
The 48-year-old actor posted a video of himself making a jump at Skydive Dubai, which has had more than 3 million views overnight.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah,” he is heard saying in the clip, moments before he takes the jump. “I’m ready.”
Last year, the “Men In Black” star had said he had jumped at Skydive Dubai at least five times, along with his children, Willow and Jaden.
He also shared a photo from the sea, cruising around Dubai with the iconic Burj Al Arab in the background.
Before his Dubai trip, Smith visited Marrakech in Morocco and Cairo and Giza in Egypt. It is unclear whether Smith is traveling alone or with friends or family.
While in Dubai to promote his superhero flick “Suicide Squad” last year, Smith revealed the emirate was one of his favorite cities in the world.
“I feel like Dubai dreams the way I dream,” he said.
“When I landed, I was like, that’s how I would build the city if I were building a city. The emirate really flows with who I am.
“I love the energy of progress here. It’s the way the people and the royal family, how they have the design and the ideas. Everything wants to be the best and I love that energy.”
