Recent estimations suggest that up to 90 per cent of Dubai residents are expatriates – a figure that means that most of us aren’t surrounded by many friends and family. And if you enjoyed a packed social calendar at home, that can make moving to Dubai feel a little quiet and lonely.

Get ready to fill your diary, as we have discovered Social Circles Dubai – a website that makes it easy to make friends in the city, attend events of every possible kind, and chat to people online.

Since signing up, we have spotted invites to attend a ‘Monthly Mingle’, “Language Exchange Group” and a “Book Club” – and we’ve been tempted by an invitation to head to Oman for hiking in Snake Canyon. One of favorite groups on the site – the “Dubai Party Lovers” group – had us dragging our party dresses and shoes out of the wardrobe! If you have a particular hobby, you can join or create a group for likeminded people, such as Photography and Outdoors Activities. The website provides the perfect platform for things to do in Dubai.

Social Circles is celebrating its second anniversary and the launch of its new website by throwing a party at trendy club Republique the 20th of September at the Address hotel in Dubai Mall.
