I am an Asian and have been Living in Dubai for almost a year. People have different opinions when it comes to express their experiences of living here. Dubai is very much famous for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline which is the world’s tallest building that has ever built so far.
After coming to Dubai, I came along with so many new things (as a city). I had mixed feelings, i mean Dubai is undoubtedly full of luxuries that you will never find in any other city in the world. On the same time it has it’s bad side which can not be ignored. I take it as good and bad both but definitely most of it is good. In this post i am going to outline my experience of living in Dubai by portraying the main obstacles you face during your time at Dubai as well as the positive things Dubai has to offer to its newly arrived residents!
Cleanliness!What Surprised me the most on my arrival to Dubai was the cleanliness of the City! Cleanliness is what makes this city beautiful and they do take it quite seriously. There will be no shortage of toilet papers, bidet and cleaning staff in any public toilets. Believe me Dubai has the cleanest public toilets which you will never find in any other city.
Friends from all over the World!
When you’re out with your friends in Dubai, it looks like you’re representing the United Nations. You will have the chance to meet and communicate with people from almost more than 50 countries and this really helps you boost your communication and interaction skills. Especially if you have worked at Dubai you are in position to deal with people from all over the world. Its a lifetime benefit of living here.
Air-conditioning systems!Air-conditioning anywhere in the world is never the right temperature but in Dubai. Nearly all of the apartments in Dubai are centrally air-conditioned Even the Bus stops and that’s the best thing you are going to miss when you are outside Dubai.
Ski Dubai!You realize that you’ve taken the Ski Dubai for granted as there’s no other place in the world with such a thing.
Grocery Delivered at your door-step!You miss having anything delivered to you at any given hour. Grocery at 2 in the morning? Possible to be delivered to you if you’re in Dubai.
Cheap Transportation!Dubai’s Metro is very very economical and those who are working in Dubai can easily afford the metro service. Moreover, taxi fares in Dubai aren’t so bad. In fact, I now believe that it’s extremely cheap!
Dazzling occasional Fireworks!Dubai’s Fireworks are literally amazing and they never miss any occasion to impress the tourists as well as the residents with their breathtaking fireworks!
Easy Employment!Getting a job offer from anywhere in the world is never good enough compared to the tax-free salary you get in Dubai (and the rest of Middle East) along with the 30-day holiday per year, paid plane tickets, health insurance, housing and transportation allowance and the list goes on.
