Dubai, 1 August 2022: Time Out Market Dubai brings the best of the city together under one roof; the best chefs, much-loved restaurateurs, unique cultural experiences and now a beautifully curated mural wall by Emirati artist, Abdulla Lutfi. With two monochromatic creations proudly installed at the Market, visitors are sure to be amazed by the detailed work that signifies the importance of the city’s roots as well as how far it has come. Depicting the old and new Dubai, the artworks have one common aspect – the community coming together to enjoy what the city has to offer, just what Time Out Market Dubai is all about.  The artist, Abdulla Lutfi, is a young and spontaneous expressionist who holds many accomplishments including securing several art commissions from hotels, banks, and has his art on display at Dubai International Airport. His popular and impactful drawings were also exhibited on World Autism Awareness Day at the Terra – the Sustainability Pavilion which was part of  Expo 2020. As an artist on the autism spectrum, Abdulla views the world in an unconventional way leading him to create pieces of art that are to be celebrated throughout time. Proud of his amazing memory, attention to detail, and the impact value of his work, his distinct black and white drawings attract viewers to take a closer look into the humorous glimpse of everyday Emirati life.  “I am a black and white artist on the autism spectrum but that doesn’t hold me back from achieving anything. I am wh

Edinburgh is the world’s best city to visit right now, according to the fifth annual Time Out Index released today. The city ranked highly across the board, topping the global chart as the most beautiful and the most walkable city in the world. Edinburgh is also much loved as a great place for a stroll through nature and has heaps of new exciting things to do.   Every year, through the Time Out Index, Time Out – the global media and hospitality business that helps people explore and experience the best of the city – surveys  thousands of city-dwellers around the world about life in their hometown right now. Using their responses, Time Out compiles its annual ranking of the world’s best cities, in order to point people in the direction of the places which locals are raving about. Last year, the list focused on how cities have pulled together through the pandemic, in particular when it comes to community spirit and resilience. This year, after a prolonged period of limited travel, people are itching to get back out there. So for the 2022 ranking, Time Out has added extra weight to the things that make cities great places to visit as well as to live.    The top cities this year are places that excel at going out, including eating and drinking; art, culture and museums; and nightlife. They are places that locals rate highly for fun and for beauty and aren’t boring, overly expensive or overrated – according to the people who know them best. To make for an even more enjoyable break
