Recommended Expat Blogs: UAE

In our InterNations Recommended Blog section we let you take the spotlight! Expat life in general is, of course, a perfect breeding ground for great, user-generated reads, and life in the UAE makes no exception. Take your time and browse the great blogs showcased in this article!

Everybody who has spent time in a different country knows that expat life is not quite like anything else in the world. The confusion of the first few days and weeks, the slow, but steady process of acclimation, the little peculiarities and quirks that might strike you about your new surroundings: almost any situation you encounter can make for a great story. If you are so inclined and want to blog about it, of course!

Our InterNations recommended blog section features talented expat bloggers from around the world. Their offerings to the blogosphere have been selected for their great entries and high quality, whether they may be funny, informative, interesting, deeply personal or a combination of all of the above.

Let’s hear from our featured bloggers in the UAE:

Lij & Kari: Chef and Steward

We love and respect the uniqueness of the Emirati culture, from their modest but graceful sense of dress and gait to their food and how they treat each other. As a Western girl, I never thought I would ever live to say and think of men in dresses (robes called Khandoura) as being highly attractive!

Dubai has always fascinated me. I have a few relatives who lived here and everyone spoke highly about Dubai and the opportunities it had to offer. 

Peter B. Krehmer

"There are so many expats in the UAE, but the InterNations Dubai Ramadan dinners brought some wonderful guests together. "

Suzanne Payne

"Dubai is such an overwhelming mixture of tradition and modernity that I was very grateful for all the support from other expats. "
