These days, there are plenty of bloggers writing about almost anything and everything under the sun — food, places, hobbies, news, tips, and much more! Among these bloggers are overseas Filipino workers (OFW) who like to write about their experiences abroad.
Here in Dubai, you might have come across a number of Filipino blogs with articles that talk about daily life in the UAE. Some of them have even become “influencers” when it comes to fashion, dining, budget travel, and other niches. In the following post, we have gathered some of the most popular Pinoy bloggers, vloggers, and influencers in Dubai.
50 Filipino Bloggers/Influencers to Follow in Dubai
The following list includes food, travel, fashion, and lifestyle bloggers. In most cases, these categories “overlap” (e.g. food + travel blogger, fashion + lifestyle blogger), since most bloggers write about different topics. They are mostly OFWs who have full time careers, yet still find the time to write articles or create interesting videos about their day-to-day experiences.
To know more about each blogger/vlogger, simply click on the name to visit their website, Instagram page, or YouTube channel.
