    UAE Eid Competition

    Eid is on the way, and for our readers in the UAE we have teamed up with Groupon for a small competition about your favourite restaurant or food experience. Everyone loves eating, and better than just eating, is eating the food you love. In order to honour the act of eating, tell us all about the best meal you've had in the UAE, and you’ll have the chance to win a voucher for 500AED to be spent on the Groupon.ae website. You could cash your prize in for a restaurant deal in Dubai for another fabulous meal in the Emirates, but then again, a full body massage sounds nice too…

    The Emirates are full of great food, and we want to hear about it! And we want to hear the details of an incredible restaurant experience, your grandmother’s tabbouleh,  your best shawarma or manakish or anything else that tickled your taste buds.

    Amazing Dubai Photo

    There have been some amazing photos taken of Dubai. But this one is the best. It's a tourist mashup a la Taj Mahal, Leaning Tower of Pisa. You know the ones, hundreds of tourists getting that photo as if they are pulling one of the minarets or leaning up against the tower. Annoying tourists they are.

    Well, there was no such vantage point for Burj Khalifa, because it is so big, so you have to be on the real outskirts of Dubai to make this work. And one man has done that. And it is hilarious. Big man. From the funny dudes at reddit.
