Being the new-bee in Dubai, I have been actively looking for platforms to make new friends here. One of the best places to meet new people here with common interests is http://www.meetup.com.
Meetup is the world’s largest network of local groups. Meetup makes it easy for anyone to organize a local group or find one of the thousands already meeting up face-to-face. More than 9,000 groups get together in local communities each day, each one with the goal of improving themselves or their communities.
Meetup’s mission is to revitalize local community and help people around the world self-organize. Meetup believes that people can change their personal world, or the whole world, by organizing themselves into groups that are powerful enough to make a difference. ( From the official website)
I was thrilled to find this space of getting connected wit like-minded people. The various groups range from pilates group to bikers clubs, wine clubs to coffee clubs, singles club to book clubs. I have joined the photography and the writers’ groups and am really excited to go to my first meetups.
So if you are a new-bee in town like me, you now know where to look for like-minded friends. (:
