Living in Dubai as an American woman

Posted in Dubai forum

Is there any American in this forum who lives in Dubai or UAE?

I am considering moving there. My first thought about that place is that it is far too dangerous place for an American woman. But then I think, Dubai has large number of foreign workers, which can imply that the country is very tolerant and cosmopolitan place.

I was wondering, as American moving to Dubai, did you get used to the new environment quickly? Did you face any major problems?

    Lots of Americans livign here. Walking around in public by yourself is perfectly acceptable. You are thinking of Saudi. They are much more strict there. Living here is pretty much like living in any other major city.

    I'm an American woman living in Dubai with my family. I'm not sure where in the states you are from but the level of safety in Dubai is incredibly safe.

    There is hardly any crime affecting you daily. The biggest safety issue is probably the standard of driving. But to be honest, it's not that much worse than what I've seen in the US.

    We were able to adjust quite easily as we are open minded and respect the local culture and religion. We did a lot of research before moving here. Here are a couple of websites to help you:
