Yep, very familiar with two of them (Dubai and AD). Know nothing about Muscat. Now that I have signed up for a few years in Doha, I need to find a decent place to live.

Try again

I'd suggest a villa in either Al Wabb or Abu Hamour. Minimise your commute between school, work and home, since the traffic is a complete nightmare and is about to get a whole lot worse.

Depends where you work and where the kids go to school - you don't want to be far away as Johnnyboy said - traffic is unpredicatable and a nightmare. We are at Al Rayyan and its pretty central - Al Saad is OK - but if you are working around airport try Abu Hamour and Al Waab - or if working the other end try The Pearl.

Problem with Al Wabb is the traffic, we looked at a couple of places, which at the weekend meant the roads were not jammed solid.

Again as has been said school will determine where you live.

We eventually settled for Al Rayyan Village, beautiful place to live.

I would not believe all the hype. Having lived in Saudi it was a hell of a lot tougher to gain access especially if you had a 50 caliber machine gun pointing at you along with the national guard who were used for protection

A long way from G4S security.
