At the centre of the spinning, exponential growth rate of the Gulf is the glittering city of Dubai. Avoiding the lavish and the over-photographed, the over-stylised and the over-hyped, editor Hind Shoufani and the contributors share intimate tales from behind the impressive skyscrapers, the walled-in villas and the market alleyways. This is a walk through with the city’s inhabitants as you witness the development, the glitz and the glamour through stories and along routes as individual as the many languages spoken here.
