Living and Working in Dubai

Life in the UAE is safe and provides a range of cultural and recreational experiences. Dubai is a modern metropolis providing excellent transport (Taxi, Metro and Tram), a range of shopping opportunities, and many ways to explore the city in both its modern and traditional aspects. Beaches are near and safe on both sides of the UAE, and the mountains also provide unusual excursion opportunities.

Dubai has quickly established itself as a destination as well as a hub of international travel. It has a proud history, from the early days of pearl diving and trade through to oil production and to a modern-day centre for finance, trade, tourism, media etc. There is always plenty to do, no matter what your interest including sport, music, theatre, cinema and socializing. There is a wide variety of excellent restaurants serving a diverse range of cuisines.

Travel to and from Dubai is easy, with numerous airlines flying to all parts of the world. The opportunities for travel, exploration and adventure both within the Gulf and throughout the Middle East, Africa and the Far East are extensive. The sun shines throughout the year with virtually no rainfall.
