I have been offered a job in Dubai. I am in my late 20's, from EU country and single guy.
I'm interested in meeting new people and would like to also experience the things that Dubai has to offer, like trips,clubbing, ... but all that mostly during the weekends. Not my intent to spend money like crazy and I'm not into a designer clothes, will try to save some money also.
I was in Dubai for a week already.
The location of the company offices is Dubai Silicon oasis.
I have been offered base monthly salary of 14,300 Dhs + allowances, which are:
accomodation allowance 77000 per year
transportation allowance 715 per month
paid health insurance
Annual airticket allowance
Relocation allowance 5000 one time
My rough calculations are that I would apox have additional expenses of a single person with:
+ taxi expenses in first few months to get used to the roads and driving,and then I would rent a car or buy a used one. Please add how much expenses would I have with that.
I'd like to live as close as possible to my office location to avoid daily traffic.
What are the good locations nearby to search for an 1 bedroom apartment or a studio flat? I've heard of arabian ranches are nice, and not so nice inter.city is also close, your opinions please.
Thanks in advance for your help
