Your new local habits in the United Arab Emirates

Hello everyone,

Living in the United Arab Emirates is a great way to immerse in a new culture and lifestyle.

Have you embraced local customs since you've lived in the United Arab Emirates? If so, which one(s)?

Did local customs change the way you see things, appreciate life or organize your daily routines? As far as the language is concerned, did you learn new expressions or words and do you use them?

What do you like most about the lifestyle in your host country? Are there any local specificities you are still struggling with?

Thanks in advance,


Well, am from Uganda. In Uganda; men hardly grow hair. The period i spent in Dubayy UAE, i realised most men grow their hair and they look so great. So, for now i grow my hair. I do look great forreal.

Thanks Dubayy
