How Dubai embraced Boxing Day in the rain

I’ve mentioned before how hyper Dubai gets for some good old fashioned rain. This year Mother Nature has delivered us some very British looking weather to set the scene for a post-Christmas Boxing Day walk.

What the rest of Dubai saw in the rain…

Residents were quick to take to Instagram and Twitter to share today’s December showers.

Did I mention we like raindrops in the UAE?

Somehow Dubai still always manages to look splendid no matter what the weather

Happy Boxing Day!
