Within many Facebook groups, a common question for someone moving to Dubai is “I am moving to Dubai but haven’t yet chosen where I want to live… can anyone suggest an area?” Then inevitably, the Expats in these Facebook pages quickly point out the location they live on, as if it’s obvious. This isn’t helpful when the person who is still deciding doesn’t have that information.
Bloggers may write about the top places to live in Dubai or the best cities for expats but with traveling on a gap year, they cannot truly understand what expat life is like. Only an expat can truly know what it’s like living in a new land, because their perspective on it is entirely different from that of someone who travels around multiple locations in short period of time.
We have found a way to make original content using the Facebook Groups. We are inviting members of the Facebook Groups who are trying to contribute with original content to create a short contribution to Expat life in their region in order to give those who are seeking this kind of content a much more in depth, meaningful article than if they were to read an article that repackages top 5 places in Dubai, or best 10 beach resorts in Cuba.
If you are an expat in Dubai, please use the submission form at the main menu under “ARTICLES” to share your experience.
This article, which is likely to be expanding and changing over time, will hopefully help you in your move to Dubai. You can bookmark this article and come back, whenever you need help relocating.
