Smile Moving to Dubai in March 2011!

Hi everyone!

As you can probably gather from the title I am moving to Dubai in March and am EXTREMELY excited about the move!!!!!

My name is Adam and I am 23 from London. When I received a job offer from a headhunting firm I jumped at the chance. I suppose my main reasons for the move are the sunshine, quality of life improvement, tax breaks but mostly the adventure of it all!

I would really appreciate if anybody could share any advice with me regarding my move. E.g. Where is the best place to live (I am after a one/two bed apartment in a good central location)? Where are the best places for young people to hang out and meet new people (Bars/clubs)?? And also any general advice on moving would be greatly appreciated!

Anyway, I don’t want to bore anyone so I’ll leave it there. I hope to get to know as many people as possible and who knows maybe gain a few golf/drinking partners along the way….?

Thanks in advance!

A

Hi Adam and congratulations on the job!! We have a Middle East Section on the site, so I will move this over there, if I can figure out how. All I will say is make sure the offer is a good one, ánd that you get your housing paid etc.
