Dubai’s coldest places, Netflix binges and takeaway fails

The chilliest hangouts you need to seek out when summer comes calling

What’s the nicest smelling place in Dubai?

That’s a question we never thought we’d ask, but you’d be surprised how many nasal treats there are around town. Whether it’s the baked aisle at Carrefour, wet tarmac when it rains or some rotisserie chicken on the street, there’s plenty about.

As always, the Time Out Dubai podcast is on hand to tackle the big questions – and this week’s episode of Straight From The Camel’s Mouth is no different.

The Time Out Dubai team, with Editor-in-Chief Holly Sands, Digital Editor Scott Campbell, Music & Nightlife Editor Tim Skinner, and Deputy Editor Amy Mathieson chat about the latest Netflix to help get you through summer, and which takeaway feasts you need to help double down on the binge watching and eating marathon.

Also, just in time for summer, we go through the city’s coldest places, and Holly regales her epic (read, absurd) seven-hour, 17km, mid-July bus stop air-con marathon down Jumeirah Beach Road.

You can already get the latest on what’s happening in Dubai through Time Out Dubai’s website, social media channels, magazine and weekly Vlogs, but the podcast is another brilliant way to find out what’s going on in one of the world’s most exciting cities. Listen on your phone, desktop or tablet, by visiting SoundCloud or iTunes. You can also subscribe to the channel and be notified as soon as a new podcast goes live.

With a new episode available every Sunday at 5pm, it’s the perfect length to pass time either during your daily commute, while you’re making dinner, or on a lunch break at work.

You can even watch a feed from the studio on Time Out Dubai’s YouTube channel, where it also hosts its weekly Vlogs series.

Every week, the Time Out Dubai team discusses the biggest news and trends from across the city, in addition to revealing the best places across town to visit right now.

It’s your chance to look behind the headlines and find out what makes the city tick – from street food to the latest nightlife hotspots and more.
