Where to live? First time in United Arab Emirates

Hi fellow travelers!

I have the opportunity to live in any of these locations: Northern Emirate location, includes Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah (Excludes the emirates of Abu Dhabi and Al Ain)

I'm going to be a teachers assistant.

A bit about myself, I'm 41 years old single female, British, I know no-one in Northern Emirate, kinda past partying but love live music, restaurants, pubs, arty, really into yoga, love history.

Wondering where's best place to live?

Thanks for taking the time to give me your thoughts. All the best.

Welcome to UAE,I believe that if it's your choice Dubai is better,but still it depends on the work location try to be near as u can

Give preference to your work location. Because the places you mentioned are scattered. But the places like Dubai, Sharjah and Ajman are close by. But all those places are different in terms of rent, lifestyle and facilities. If you are interested in night life, I suggest Dubai as the city will never sleep there. Abu Dhabi and Al Ain are located almost 140 KMs away from Dubai. If you can give your work location, I think the people can give you useful suggestions.

I don't have a work location, I can work in any of these places. So that's why I'm asking for advice.

I would say Sharjah, we are moving there come Aug 2017 :) cant wait, its not as expensive as Dubai and other areas and has alot of brits there too :)

Dear Madame,

If in you package is including accommodation then you can stay in Dubai if not then you need to search where you don't pay much for accommodation.

Regards and Good Luck
