Living in Dubai as an American woman

Posted in Dubai forum

Is there any American in this forum who lives in Dubai or UAE?

I am considering moving there. My first thought about that place is that it is far too dangerous place for an American woman. But then I think, Dubai has large number of foreign workers, which can imply that the country is very tolerant and cosmopolitan place.

I was wondering, as American moving to Dubai, did you get used to the new environment quickly? Did you face any major problems?

    I just saw your post, so I don't know if you are still interested in this info. I am an American single female, living in Dubai. I have been here for three months. It is a great place for women, very safe. I walk alone at night and feel no anxiety at all.

    Of course I try to minimize my chances of being treated rudely by dressing modestly, and not being loud and vulgar. Overall I love it here. It was more difficult to find a job than I expected, but finally I was successful.

    I am renting a sublet (studio type) apartment with a shared kitchen which I found advertised in a local newspaper. My landlord is from India, and very nice. Public transport is easy and affordable, even taxis are not too expensive for a short distance. If you have any more questions let me know!

    I have been living here for about 15 years and also travelled to a lot of countries like Egypt, saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Turkey, Germany, and China. Frankl speaking, Dubai is the most wonderful place to live in the whole world. Very safe, open, easy. I have a lot of western friends who are from the states and Canada who share the same opinion. Good Luck

    not really.
    there are more than 100 nationalities living here.
    living anywhere in the world needs adjustment.
