    hey ritika,

    Hey Ritika,

    I am also from delhi. Life is much more comfortable here and safety is excellent for everyone especially for women. I haven't seen anyone so far who is doing any kind of big adjustments. Though people always says that its a muslim country and u should not wear revealing clothes but what i have seen everyone wears what they like to, western, indian, no need of adjustments in clothing but yeah if u do have a boyfriend or husband, then both should not show too much intimacy in public places like kissing but hugs n holding arms are absolutely ok...though still its not allowed but everyone do...i m saying what i have seen here so far...rules are everywhere but it doesnt mean they r getting followed 100%. Noone cares and interested in anyone's life here...alcohol consumption is illegal outside but in pubs n bars absolutely fine and legal..for home drinkers...can buy only via license. Food is amajing and night life is wonderful. So many events are happenning round the year. beaches are great...malls are amajing for shopping and international brands with reasonable prices...great cars to buy and cheaper as well but need to get license is perfect for girls and boys from metropolitan cities like delhi, bombay, and european cities and US ones...u'll find almost every national here but mostly you will see Indians, chines and phillepinos...europeans and americans lives in central part mostly...overall life is wonderful for open minded and free life kinda people...just respect the local people(arabs) traditions and their festivals...and rest of the things are absolutey great themselves...i hope i have cleared your some of any queries you can email me on [...]
    have a nice day! nice to see a delhite here...

    hi rithika, i am from delhi too, serviving in dubai is not an easy job, even you have free accomodation your personal earnings should be above 5000 AED to have a comfortable life, being a single women you can servcie in your emoluments, but you need to have a keep your self away from extravagnza, choice is yours, you want to take home some or just want to pass life here! it is all personal, nver try to break the loal ethos, no one is going to troble you ever, indians are the most lawabiding people here, have a nice day

    It all depends on your lifestyle and socializing!! We have people here working for 1000AED and these people save a lot...and on the other hand we have guys earning 30000 and not saving a penny at all. So it all depends on how you plan your finances. Everything in Dubai and its Malls look atractive and will create an urge for spending... So you have to have the will power to save.
    Cheers!! and enjoy your stay when you are in Dubai.

    Hi there .... AED 3000/= is a tight survival & Aed-5000/= is a normal survival . And rdg the place .... every place have got its goods & bads . Compare to your home country , Dubai is much better , but still it did not mean there is a 100% pure everything . You need to take care of yourself ...

    Thanx .

    Good to take suggestion...

    posted by  Lathif Sheriff in Dubai forum 

    i am working for a hotel industry since 6years, Well life is good in dubai, you are secured if you are coming here on employment visa. Check your package first it should be Salary+visa+sharing accomodation ( depents on your position)+meals on duty+ uniform, 9hrs shift+ weekly off ++etc. Dubai is second India. Language spoke commonly first - Hindi, English, and then Arabic, so dont worry about communication. people are friendly here, work at ease. You are Indian woman, climb for success. All the Best..

    Hi, trust you have got many many replies, suggestions and advices by now. let me contribute from my side as well. As another freind suggested, it is important that which hotel are you going to work. Dubai is a wonderful place to live & survive with its freedom & safety. It is one of the best places in the world to live in with its safety and freedom but one has to be very very careful in protecting herself from other influences as well. If you are a brave, confident, bold & self reliant , then no need to worry
