While outsiders tend to regard Dubai with the kind of hyperbolic perspective that suggests everyone drives around in gold-plated cars and eats caviar for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the truth of Dubai is far more laid-back than all that. In 2015, the city experienced a kind of hipster revival that saw the advent of food trucks, indie concerts, flea markets, philanthropic art endeavors, and farm-to-table foodie movements that meant our weekends were now packed with enjoyable, relaxed activities that are one part discovery and one part fun. While the flash and pizzazz of Dubai still glistens in the distance, the real entertainment can be found in simple activities like biking around Downtown Dubai or browsing for fresh produce at Urban Market. In Savoir Flair’s weekend guide, we’ll point you in the direction of the best places to go and what to wear while you’re out enjoying the simpler side of Dubai.
