    • Concerns about moving to UAE

      Dubai May 18, 2015 at 10:09 PM

      I am considering applying for jobs in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I have been to UAE on holiday before but living in another country is a different experience. I am a white female and plan to travel to the UAE without my husband for the first 3 months.

      1. How can I ensure my safety when I get there?

      2. I have heard horror stories about people being promised amazing jobs and then they arrive and either things are a nightmare immediately or things get bad once they take your passport & visa from you. What can I do to ensure that doesn't happen? I am applying for executive positions in corporate organizations.

      3. When looking for accommodation, what are the best resources? What areas in Dubai and Abu Dhabi should I avoid living in?

      4. I know that the UAE has many venomous spiders and snakes. I know there are sea snakes in the water and warnings about snakes on the beaches, but how common is the occurrence of seeing a snake in day to day life in the city and most importantly in your home?

    • 8 Hour Layover in Dubai Airport Terminal 2??

      Dubai May 2, 2015 at 8:29 PM

      Hey Guys,
      I was hoping for a reality check on Terminal 2. My initial flight into Dubai Airport, I immediately got put on a shuttle from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 for my Delta connection. This time i've got a 8 Hour layover in Dubai for by 4am flight to Kabul. My question is should I spend the night in Terminal 1, and got to Terminal 2 around 2am, or should I go immediately over there? I've heard that terminal 2 is the black sheep of Dubai Airport. Poor amenities, and very difficult to transfer over to. How difficult is it going to be to find a shuttle or even taxi and 2am?


      BTW: I've got one check-in bag, but i was told by Delta that it would transfer all the way to Kabul.

      I will be visiting Abu Dhabi for the first time staying 1 week, playing some golf and getting around to see some places as well as go to Dubai for the day and wanted to make sure I was prepared upon arriving appropriate attire that is exceptionable to wear considering I look like a drenched wash cloth in hot weather.
      Golfing attire I hope I am capable to wear shorts and nice button up. Anyone have recommendations.

      Hi everyone,

      My boyfriend and I are going to Abu Dhabi for a day. We want to visit the main attractions but in a low budget way, since we are backpackers. So, how people usually get around Abu Dhabi?
      What is it best: get a taxi (or even public transportation.. still dont know if it has it) or get a one day tour?
