A million questions

Firstly we are a family with children and a dog, so we are hoping to find accomodation, preferably a villa with small garden ('cos I am not paper training a dog that is larger than me) and I hope the ki...

Thanx dbxsoul!! The dog is family and we have looked into getting him there which isn't really a big deal (except cost) but getting him home will mean one month's quarantine, so I guess we will have to stay about 12 years!! (He also spends nearly all day inside now.....snoring!) We have lived in par...

Thanks again for the info. You're like an encyclopaedia! :D Of course I have another question. This one is about medicines. It varies from country to country which medicines are bought over the counter or with prescription, so is there some website/list or something that has these medicines- cold an...

Thans again! Think we will bring a barbie, gas one, just hope there isn't a hose fitting prob. The differing "rules" between Sharjah and Dubai are interesting. A school has recently opened in Sharjah that we are interested in. Does the dress rule apply to children as well? Also the eating in public ...

My advice is as a starting point buy a Dubai Explorer book, now in its 9th edition and a Zappy explorer. Stacks of info in them. We haven't moved yet but will be soon!

Also wilks there are heaps of schools under construction and not scheduled to open until September. It would be my guess they recruit many of there staff from the UK so I'd say you should be checking ads. at home. :)

Hi, there are quite a lot of schools but I guess it depends if you are talking about adult ed. or kids. These are secondary and primary schools I think. I haven't moved yet, but just trying to help! :wink: Al Mawakeb http://www.almawakeb.sch.ae American Academy http://www.dubaiacademy.org American S...

:shock: :shock: Anyway, thanks again dbxsoul. Now alcohol- I am under the understanding we can't bring any in in a container but can any non-muslim visiting bring in a couple of bottles for friends?? I also thought I read that we can get a licence (however you spell that one) to drink in our own hom...

Hi It is about 2.5 years since we left Singapore and from the rents we paid then to what I can see that you can get in Dubai (we haven't arrived yet) Singapore is far more expensive. Cars are approx 3 times what you'd expect to pay in your home country and petrol was expensive. It is an easy place t...

Is there any reasonably priced accomodation (with cooking facilities and a pool) until we can settle on a place to live? Also is there anything you wish you b...

Hi and thanks again dbxsoul. Actually we have just been to Dubai and I am shocked!! It is amazing!! Had a look around at some supermarkets and it looks reasonably priced to me-even alcohol is OK price wise (Singapore prices were much, much higher, so for a Muslim country I was quite surprised).Also ...

dbxsoul was a fantastic source of info for me and thanx again mate! I've been here only two months but I guess as far as the shine wearing off I'll just have wait. For us this is a pretty easy posting (been to a developing country) and going to the supermarket only gets frustrating with such a huge ...

At home kids have to be within your view and at arms length at all times but here during the school hols I saw kids of 10 to 12 going to the pictures on their own. My kids are safe and people are really nice to them and in shopping centre play areas you can pay and leave them....yes, I am serious!! ...
