Fact: A sizable chunk of the UAE’s population are expats who consider the country as their home. Each one of us has different memories of living here. It could be a place that used to exist, or the first time a grand event such as Dubai Shopping Festival took place. It could even be something as simple as remembering when Sheikh Zayed Road only had a handful of buildings surrounding it.
What we’re getting at here is that we all have a unique story to tell about living in the UAE. We’d love to hear yours and to get the conversation started - we’re highlight 3 timeless moments that you can only have here in the UAE.
