What’s it like to live in Dubai? 

A busy metropolis, Dubai is one of the most populous cities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Founded in the 18th century as a fishing village, the city grew rapidly in the early 21st century into a cosmopolitan metropolis focused on tourism and hospitality.

Where can I live in Dubai? 

Jumeirah Beach  

One of the most popular ex-pat areas of Dubai is Jumeirah Beach, which is about as glitzy as it gets. 

Some of Dubai’s most renowned bars, clubs, boutiques, lifestyle malls, and restaurants can all be found right at your fingertips, though you should be aware that traffic is a bit heavy at night.
There is nothing better than Jumeirah Beach for people who like to party, particularly young professionals. Apartments with a sea view can be pricey, but accommodations are luxurious. 

Palm Jumeirah  

A very spectacular destination in Dubai, several apartment blocks on the palm offer direct access to the sea, and at the top end of the market are opulent villas that also have private beach access. 

A great neighbourhood for couples and families, because of its quietness and proximity to the beach, as well as its selection of activities including yachting, speedboating, swimming, diving, and even skydiving.
It’s easy to reach the mainland by public transportation, but it’s recommended to have your own vehicle to travel around the island. 

Arabian Ranches 

It consists of 24 quiet, safe and natural neighbourhoods, just outside of Dubai, that cater to Brits. 

Families and couples enjoy living in Arabian Ranches because the quality of rental accommodation is extremely high, and ex-pat residents have access to a wealth of local activities, such as scenic walks, communal parks and gardens with play areas and barbecues, swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, etc.
All you need is within the community’s walls – supermarkets and street markets, restaurants, and a school in English – and not far from Dubai city’s attractions, although you will need a car to get around since the area is not connected to the Dubai Metro. 

Downtown Dubai 

There are a lot of exciting things to do in Dubai, including staying in ultra-modern accommodation that features cutting-edge facilities, beautiful swimming pools, and stunning views of the city and Burj Khalifa, which is one of the world’s tallest buildings. 

Young and sophisticated professionals, as well as couples and singles, are particularly drawn to this area, although it remains popular with all types of ex-pats. 

Transport in Dubai. 

The airport is the closest point to Dubai, and from there, you can travel within the city using a car, public transportation (bus and underground), a taxi, and a ferry. 

Fun Facts About Dubai 

  • Dubai has the tallest skyscraper in the world. More than 160 stories and seven world records can be found in the Burj Khalifa, which stands 830m tall from ground to tip.
  • Dubai’s police force drives supercars like the Ferrari FF, Lamborghini Aventador, and Aston Martin One-77. 
  • After London, Paris, and Bangkok, Dubai is the fourth most visited city in the world.
  • Because of its height, residents of the Burj Khalifa must wait approximately two minutes longer for the sun to set before they can break fast during Ramadan.

Other Popular Destinations


Yes, you can ship your vehicle to the Middle East, but you will need to comply with certain requirements. Generally, you will need to provide proof of ownership, a valid driver’s license, and insurance documents. Some countries in the Middle East may also require additional documentation such as import permits or emissions certificates. Your Move Manager can provide more information on the specific requirements for your vehicle’s shipment. It’s important to note that shipping a vehicle can be a complex process and may require additional fees, so it’s best to discuss your options with your Move Manager.

Customs regulations can vary depending on the specific country in the Middle East that you are shipping to. Generally, you will need to provide a detailed inventory of your belongings, a commercial invoice, and a bill of lading or air waybill. Depending on the nature of your shipment, you may also need additional documentation such as permits or licenses. It’s important to work with a trusted and experienced international removals company like John Mason International to ensure that you comply with all relevant regulations.

The packers were careful, quick and courteous. I highly recommend this company and would definitely use them again! Efficient, polite, punctual: could not ask for more.

From start with Michelle to finish with Gill the level of service was excellent. John Mason and its international partners handled my move from Devon to Australia seemingly effortlessly. I couldn't ask for better.
