What's your Dubai? Crown Prince launches online plan to promote city

Beaches? Shops? Brunches? Whatever Dubai means to you, the Crown Prince wants to know.

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, has launched #MyDubai, a plan which will promote Dubai around the world, which has been backed by the city's tourism bosses.

Launched via His Highness' Instagram and Twitter accounts, #MyDubai is an initiative to create the world’s first autobiography of a city!

The best pictures and stories will be shared through social media via @definitelydubai, as well as during exhibitions.

All you have to do is tag your picture #MyDubai on Twitter or instagram. Already more than 25,000 pictures have been posted, and the best ten have been shown off on a new facebook site.

H.E Helal Saeed Almarri, Director-General, DTCM, said: “The remarkable passion for Dubai that exists amongst both UAE nationals and the communities of more than 200 nationalities living in Dubai is an often untold part of the Emirate’s success. This passion has been demonstrated in no uncertain terms with more than 25,000 images and videos uploaded to Instagram with the hashtag MyDubai just 12 hours after the project was launched by His Highness." 

“The best marketers of a city are the people who live in it and through DTCM’s involvement in #MyDubai, it is our intention to showcase the best of the city by curating images, videos and stories of residents experiencing the events, attractions, hotels, restaurants and other elements of our destination offering."
