The Best Areas to Live in UAE

Postby texkourgan » Fri Jun 21, 2013 8:28 am

It can be difficult to find the best place to live in a new city. This is even more difficult for an expat who is not familiar with the country and culture. So where is the best place to live in UAE?

What do you look for in a neighborhood? What do different neighborhoods offer? What area would you recommend based on:
- Schools
- Transportation
- Access to shops and groceries
- Nightlife and Activities

Where do you live? What do you like about it? Are there any dangerous areas? Are some areas more affordable?

Thank you in advance for your contribution. This is a very common question for expats moving to UAE and your help is much appreciated.

We have recently moved hoses in Dubai due to the change in rental prices. We did our best to find out where to but we still ended up being a bit disappointed with some features of the area.

I have just been recommended by a friend to check out a new website that would have been very useful 2 months ago!!! Anyway, if you are still trying to find info on where to move you might find this review site useful: www.flatreviews.com
The tenants of various communities write about their experience and post pictures, useful tips about living there...

Well it depends upon your lifestyle.
Imo Dubai is definitely the best city to live in the UAE.

I've lived in different areas of Dubai but one of the best and peaceful areas is Discovery Gardens, there are nearly all the facilities available there for a family but if you're looking for a nightlife you'll have to go to Dubai Marina which is not too far from that place as well.

You can also find information from this website http://lookup.ae. you can check the complete list of schools etc in the nearby areas too from it.

There are plenty of new economical areas are coming up in Dubai like queue point. It's better to go off-plan property sites like http://offplan-properties.ae to get all the information about payment plan, floor plans etc

There are many options but that does depend on your budget. You can find multiple online resources where you can search in a specific area, budget, rooms, etc..

It's would also be a good idea to look for any offplan investments if you're staying in Dubai. It can prove to be cheaper in the long run Dubai. http://dubai-offplan.ae is a good source to start with.

Goodluck! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
