One of the best Dubai experiences is Friday brunch. It’s not like in the United States, where a few friends get together for food and drinks at a local restaurant that serves specials on Saturday or Sunday mornings/early afternoons. It is a whole EVENT. Every Friday (which is like a US Sunday), hotels across Dubai host different levels of brunches. The two best brunches in Dubai are at the Westin and Fairmont hotels. Me and my best friend that I met here, Ilyssa, from New York, attended the brunch at the Westin in Dubai. It was one of the most fun days of my life. There was every kind of food you can imagine, from sushi, Indian, lobster, Arabic traditional dishes, Italian, and much more. There was a petting zoo for children, but we visited so we could pet the animals! There was also Chinese dancing and entertainment, and an assortment of beverages, including a cocktail made in a watermelon! It was an absolutely beautiful day, and a must for you if you study abroad in the UAE!
