Hello all, I am moving to Dubai after 15 years in London. Any party and foodie tips truly appreciated. Info re salsa, biking, scuba clubs also sought please! Trying to decide whether to live near the Difc or towards the Marina. Any guidance?
Big City, Bright Lights - Expensive, but deals can be found everywhere. Lots of clubs and nightlife if that is what you are interested in. For the most part, people are friendly, but reserved in that they are occupied with their employment, families, individual life. Many times easy to strike up conversations with ex-pats. Few locals are out and around, but many places to visit to get the culture of the UAE. Outlying Emirates supply the best tourist resources and the experience of the Bedouin people.
