Telling your story

That’s what this site is all about… and possibly having fifteen minutes of fame! ?

I hope the stories written already inspire you to tell yours. It occurred to me that some sort of framework might help to put your thoughts down, so here are a few tips to help get the ink flowing. It is by no means there to restrict you; just to help get you started.

  • What brought you to Dubai?
  • How has it changed your life?
  • What do you like most about it?
  • Name a favourite place(s)
  • Tell us a treasured memory or two
  • Any recommendations / must-dos?
  • Tell us your hope for the future.


You can write your story the old traditional way using words and pictures, or you can send us a soundbite with some photographs OR you can even send us a small movie. The website can handle all three media types. When uploading pictures, the files (jpeg or png) should ideally be around or less than 1MB and hi-res. Our current movie format is mp4, and for soundbites or audio, we accept mp3’s. Please remember that the first picture you upload is what gets featured as the main image for your story.

If you’re shy or hesitant to tell us your name, please don’t be; we’re more than happy for you to use your initials. Looking forward to reading the story of what brought you to this vibrant city. ?
