    • Dubai accommodation - long term. Where, how and how much?

      Dubai Jul 6, 2015 at 11:23 AM

      Dear all,
      I'm not sure if I'm in the right place to ask such questions, but I will try.
      I received a job offer, so I am moving to Dubai for one year (maybe more) in August. Even though I have been to Dubai for a very short trip last year, I didn't realize how expensive this city can be, especially regarding to the accomodation.
      And because my contract is more or less an internship with a relatively limited salary, I am looking for a shared flat, where I can have my own and fully furnished room (ideally but not necessarily with enclosed bathroom). I will work in one of the Dubai free zones, next to Jumeirah lakes tower (so very close to Dubai Marina), so in case there is a close and not that expensive neighborhood for living, in a walking distance from metro/bus station, it will be more than appreciated.
      Anyway I have absolutely no idea about prices and cost of living. I only found 3 advert webpages offering a shared accomodation (DubaiClassified, Expatriates, Dubizzle) with price range from 2500 up to 7000 or even more dirhams. I don’t know what is considered to be too cheap and too expensive, however as I am limited with my expenses, I am willing to spend no more than 4000 AED for an accomodation (ideally between 2500-3700 AED for a single room). So I am not sure, if my expectations are not set up for a disappointment.
      I also found that it’s pretty difficult to find the shared accomodation with western expats roomates (it’s not my preference though) and most of Asians living in the Dubai diaspora are not willing to share their flat with someone from a different culture (I understand why).
      So, I would like to ask you about your experiences and picks. For instance, can you tell me which neighborhoods are the most convenient, in your opinion? Are my expectations too high? What should I take care of when searching for an accomodation in Dubai? Someone told me that accomodation is a fast moving comodity in Dubai, so it’s almost impossible to find one before I arrive. Is it true?
      So, to make it clear, my preferences are (in this order):
      - single and fully furnished room
      - enclosed bathroom
      - convenient location (in the meaning of a public transporation)
      - Internet and DEWA included
      Do you think, it’s real to find a deal and offer like this, for 3000-3700 AED?

      Where to buy Arabic Clothing!

      Dubai Jul 6, 2015 at 1:25 AM

      Hi, currently in Dubai and my partner and son want to buy the Traditional Arabic/Emirati clothing, we mentioned it to the taxi driver on arrival at the airport and she said it's really cheap in some places - she suggested 50-75 UAE Dirhams but due to the tiredness I forgot where she said!

      We went to a "souk" near Dubai Mall yesterday (wasn't really a souk in the traditional sense!) and they wanted 175 UAE Dirhams - not a bad price but 100 more than suggested to pay.

      Has anyone any ideas where it could be cheaper?

      We are hoping to visit the old souk in Deira tonight too, open to suggestions though.

      Burj Khalifa - which floor to go to?

      Dubai Jul 5, 2015 at 12:34 AM

      I'm currently in Dubai and looking to do Burj Khalifa, can anyone confirm if it is worth paying double to go from the 124th Floor Viewing to 148th Floor viewing?

      24 floors sounds a lot but given the size I am not sure the extra cost would be worth it so looking for feedback. It's £21.00pp vs £52.00pp - there's 4 of us so it's a considerable amount to pay if not worth it. I did the highest floor in NYC Empire State Building, I had a free ticket but so glad I didn't pay as it was not great at all!

      Tour of the Hajar Mountains

      Fujairah May 5, 2013 at 4:50 AM

      Hello everyone! A friend and I are going to be in Fujairah and were looking to do a mountain tour with this company called Best Shore Trips from Fujairah on any day from 12 to 16 May (inclusive). The company received great reviews on tripadvisor. It is= US$140 per person with a minimum of 4 people. The tour guys described the tour as follows:-

      "The excursion begins with a drive through the oases of Al Dhaid and Masafi, then reaches the village and port of Dibba, located at the base of the magnificent Hajar Mountains. To view the fascinating cliffs and deep canyons the drive crosses the Musandam Peninsula on off-road tracks through winding gorges up to a height of nearly 1’ 200 metres. A picnic lunch is served en route . "

      Would have liked to do an independent tour too but we would require a 4WD which would be tricky. Was hoping that there may be other travels in or around Fujairah at the same time who would like to go on this tour with us?

      Snorkeling at Snoopy island
