Synopsis

Ostentatious, glam, materialistic, and tax free, Dubai is one of the most popular overseas locations for expatriate professionals. Although Dubai's population is made up of 75% expats, there is still an old town which is home to a vibrant local community, away from the artificial world of glass skyscrapers. The souks, the heart of urban Arabia, boast windows brimming with gold, rows of spices and nuts and fruits, pashminas and a dizzying variety of perfumes. As you set off on your journey to inimitable Dubai, this easy-to-use book offers advice on everything - from how to prepare before leaving; areas to live; how to find a job; understanding the property market; selecting schools; and the legal system. - Overview of Dubai: a general overview of history, climate, culture and economy - Living in Dubai: offers advice on driving licences, opening a bank account, finding accommodation, how to get around, the education system and schools, hospitals, understanding of the legal system, and how to get connected - Working in Dubai: provides an understanding of the job market, its conditions, and how to find a job in Dubai - Leisure in Dubai: looks into shopping, food and dining, outdoor activities, how to keep fit, clubs, and short weekend trips.Contents: Preface; Part 1 Dubai and the UAE; 1 Overview; 2 History; 3 Culture and religion; 4 Festivals; 5 Economy; 6 Projects; 7 The law; 8 The media; Part 2 Moving to Dubai; 9 The move and formalities; 10 Getting around; 11 Working in Dubai; 12 Accommodation; 13 Health care; Part 3 Enjoying Life in Dubai; 14 Touring; 15 Activities and sports; 16 Art, drama and theatre; 17 Beauty and spa; 18 Shopping; 19 Looking after your kids; 20 Restaurants; 21 Going out; 22 Charities and special needs; Conclusion; Index.
