Default Cost of living in Dubai

What are the standard rates for living in Dubai? How far does an AED stretch?

Are you single, married, kids, no kids
What sector, what education, what industry do you work in?

Physiotherapists arent paid the best in this part of the world
At some of the leading clinics they are paid AED10-15000 and depending on the company accomodation and commission. Most roles are covered by Arabs and Filipinos
( This information is from a friend who until recently recruited for the healthcare sector)
An idea of costs for a single person living here

Monthly costs
1 bed apartment anything from 4000-8000 ( the latter being a nice area)
Utilities for a 1 bed with no district cooling 550 ( this includes annual housing) with district cooling 700
Internet and TV 360
Mobile phone package 200 a month
Petrol i do 34km per day plus pass the salik gate twice 600
Food shop ( carrefour and M&S) 1400
eating and drinking. If i do a brunch then go out afterwards i can easily spend 1000 on one night
car hire 1500-2000 per month
There are then incidentals ( annual car insurance I own my own car, plus car registration this is paid annually at 2k)
beauty products and my ladies salon stuff ( if you are Male forget this)
You then have to factor in holidays, savings, committments at home ( mortgate, NI contributions etc)

Not a cheap place to live if on a low salary
