We’ve interviewed colleagues for a new video which sheds light on what it’s really like to live and work in the UAE – while also banishing some popular misconceptions.
Life in Dubai and Abu Dhabi is extremely cosmopolitan and international. The dynamic growth of these two cities during the last 10 years has seen huge numbers of expatriates (expats) relocate to cut their teeth on some of the largest, most complex and exciting projects in the world.
The UAE is an extremely welcoming country with huge amounts to do and see. If you enjoy an outdoor lifestyle, the UAE offers an incredible variety of sports and activities, glorious beaches and of course vast expanses of sand dunes! It also boasts world class shopping, incredible theme parks and entertainment venues and a lively nightlife.
Emirati culture is very much rooted in the country’s Islamic foundations, and everyone can visit its beautiful mosques or play their part in occasions such as iftar feasts, which take place during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
Expats from all over the world are made to feel very much at home in the UAE, and as long as you’re respectful to all people and their cultures and customs, you will find life in the country to be a very rewarding experience.
