there is loads of construction, and no area, as far as i'm aware, is construction free...it doesn't bother me, but then to be fair, i haven't got construction going on directly next to me...

the Lakes is pretty quiet as is the Ranches, parts of the Springs and Meadows are being affected by the new road being built but it isn't construction noise, just new road laying. Al Barsha is pretty noisy

All things being equal, I'd do Vancouver especially if you like diversity and experiencing the outdoors.

What about Melbin ?

Spent 23 years in Melbourne...much nicer, greener and friendlier than busy Sydney (visiting Sydneysiders often say so !!). Like Vancouver, Melbourne has been voted twice as the world's most livable city.
