Would you like to step into an Emirati family home? Wander with a poet through the financial district? Source local fashion designers and cult stores ? Dance to a Filipino rock band? Hear the stories of the dhow boat men? Drive out to swim in a wadi ?

Uncommon: Dubai is edited by Palestinian poet and filmaker Hind Shoufani, we invite you to navigate through the city without a traditional map. 30 contributors share tales of carpet and car obsessions, curious relationships and favourite buildings, Desi ice cream and North Korean food devoured. Divergent customs are reinterpreted, off-beat art and music routes are revealed, and itineraries for the shopper and the walker are shared. Celebrating the habit of flux, Uncommon guides you through the many layers of Dubai towards your own path.
