It’s easy to take for granted what we already have, especially in a fast-paced city like Dubai. Now that temperatures are still pleasant, visitors continue to descend and event organisers scramble to fit in as many festivals, shows and concerts as possible before summer, what better time to sit back and truly appreciate the city that makes our lives what they are. Here, Time Out Dubai staffers reveal what they love most about our fine emirate. This isn’t any old list or guide, but a personal collection of the everyday things that make our city great. Why? Because we love Dubai!

The nightlife is amazing

We take it for granted, but Dubai really does punch above its weight when it comes to nightlife. For a city of less than two million people it’s incredible it can attract world-class DJs all year round, while more and more international bands are stopping by on world tours. But really it’s the wide range of venues that I’ve fallen for – how can anyone fail to have a good night out at 360° (Jumeirah Beach Hotel, 04 406 8999)?
