Hi there, there's a Facebook group at www.facebook.com/groups/expatslivingindubai you could join. Or, check www.expatwoman.com or any of the Meetup groups. Always great forums there to meet like-minded people. I have a new book coming out Dec. 12 called @Home in Dubai...Getting Connected Online and on the Ground that's full of great advice. Visit: www.athomeindubai-gettingconnected.com if you want to be notified when it comes out!

Hi there. Did you mean a local person as in an Emirati, or a local person as in someone who lives and works in Dubai? If it is the latter, then the suggestions that Anne has made are good. There is also a page on www.couchsurfing.org as well as a huge listing of events and meetings in www.timeoutdubai.com almost 8 years ago
