Living in Dubai

Many of the international schools in the UAE are located in Dubai, which is a popular destination for expats, not least because of its potential for a large tax-free salary. Dubai has a large population of foreigners, and up to 90% of the population is not native Emirati. Dubai is highly developed and is renowned for its spectacular skyscrapers. There are plentiful opportunities for eating, shopping and socialising, although these activities aren't too cheap. You can get around easily by metro, tram, or public taxi. Dubai has a hot climate, with extremely high temperatures in summer. Expats should remember that Dubai is a strictly Muslim city, and should be sure to respect local laws.
