As a follow-up to my post on salary scenes and the increasing cost of living (which is highly absurd), here’s one more that encourages you to think twice before you land up in Dubai with dreams of your own. Dubai as a city is highly over-rated. The cost of living is increasing by the day. No, I am not saying that the city is bad to live in. It’s just that 70% of your monthly expense will consist of rent, which I think is day-light robbery.
So, if you are planning to shift to Dubai or have a job proposal on hand, you might want to check out a section called “UAE Cost of Living” on Gulf News’ web site. The section talks about everything you would want to know, prior to jumping aboard – including living costs, the job scene, the salary, and so on.
