It’s A Dubai Thing is a docu-web series exploring different cultural celebrations in Dubai where Lovin Dubai meet the people who make up this city and discover how much of their national identity remains part of their lives.
There are many misconceptions surrounding what it’s like for women in Dubai. So for this episode of It’s A Dubai Thing (S2: Ep2), to mark International Women’s Day, we asked residents from all over the world who call Dubai home for their experiences and many responses rang true.
