The Dubai Yellow Pages is a fascinating read with well-rounded
characters and a gripping plot line!
You may not believe that but the Yellow Pages do exist and are
available to all Etisalat subscribers each year when published.
Just stroll along to any Etisalat office and collect your copy
of the Yellow Pages (you may have to show a phone bill and ID).
You can also get the White Pages and Mobile Phone Pages while you're
at it. And then have hours of fun trying to find your own name
in there somewhere. Try under Baul if your first name is Paul.
Some residents were fortunate enough to find the Yellow Pages
delivered to them. Perhaps Etisalat is trying to encourage awarness
that the Yellow Pages exist - expats seem surprised to discover
With the addition of Du Telecom as a telecommunications provider
in the UAE (since early 2007), you can now also get yellow pages
Online Yellow Pages Dubai
online version from Etisalat is at www.yellowpages.ae and
allows you to look up companies across the UAE in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah,
and Ras Al Khaimah as well as Dubai (the print versions are different
for each emirate).
Online Yellow Pages have some company listings with website URL, information
about the company, link to send them email via a form, and a map link
(that doesn't seem to work). And of course addresses and tel numbers.
