Dubai offers the best of both worlds.
The moment you step in the city you will be awestruck by its grandeur and luxury. While it may take some while for those who have just shifted base to be able to afford the kind of luxury Dubai has to offer, the city does not completely disregard those who canít afford it. There are still some aspects of the luxurious life that you can experience while you get there.
A melting pot of different cultures!
More than 70% percent of the population in Dubai constitutes of expats coming from all parts of the world that adds so much diversity to the land. The city gives you ample opportunities to meet people and make friends from different countries and ethnicities. You will never run out of things to learn from people around you and there will never be a dull moment as there is so much one can discover about different cultures from across the globe through your expat friends.
Even after being hit by the global recession some years ago, Dubai continues to be a land of opportunities. After learning its lesson, Dubai has built a strong economy for itself which still continues to flourish at a steady yet sustainable pace. The city has emerged as a successful international hub for business with great employment opportunities across industries (even IT and Media) and not the Oil industry. With so many opportunities, finding a job in Dubai is not a difficult task provided you know how to go about it.
If you have figured out a job and a house then there are only three things you require - Food, food and more food!

Something or the other keeps happening in the city.
Thanks to its diversity, Dubai celebrates various festival and events throughout the year. Not just this but people who love art and theatre will not complain as there are many art galleries and theatres that they can look forward to. The city is crazy about sports (especially football) so you will see numerous mega sporting events being held round the year. Shopping fanatics swear by their love for the annual shopping festival. The nightlife is amazing and there are many adventure sports and trips one can indulge into. So, basically there is something for everyone.
Other countries are not far away!
If all the things stated in the point above are still not enough, there is yet another reason to pack your bags and move to Dubai. And that is its proximity with other nation.
