There's not much that hurts the eyes more than inane text talk. Ugh.

Well I have given all the info about living cost in my previous reply with which you can sum up to your requirement.

Yesl I am Gujarati Indian. And have come to know a few of Gujaratis here running swadhyay activity here.

There are a few pure veg restaurants here including one gujarati run by mer from porbandar.

As such it is comfortable here.

Please ask transportation from your employer as there is no public bus service here in RAK and taxis are very costly.

All the best.

Hi all,

I have been in RAK since February... been heading to Dubai at every opportunity, but it would be great to meet other people round here for beers and stuff.

There seems to be loads of other expats..... just not keen on walking up to a total stranger in Spinneys!

I am a teacher here, 31, from the UK. I am up for a laugh and pretty social, so it would be good to meet new people.

If anyone wants to meet up let me know

Cheers

I am not really sure where i am going with this post, but i'm new to this forum and just thought i would introduce myself.

I'm colin, i am from chicago, il. I came out here to take a chance on a new job, i have done all of the touristy things in dubai (it was fun, but just to say i did them). I have gone quad biking and beach brunching, always fun, but getting hot out.

Feel free to introduce yourself to me, i am very nice and suggest some fun activities.

Dear Colin,
Thank you very much for your post, I received a job offer I will be moving from USA to RAK this summer, I am really not sure if I have to take my chance over there or not, because I don't know if the offer/salary will cover every thing,I looked at the apartments, I am trying to find a good furnished apartment, do you have an idea how much the annual rent for a good furnished apartment is? my budget will be less than AED 45,000, plus the transportation is it easy to buy a car? I have read your post I think you answered a lot of questions for me, It is really a hard decision for me to leave USA but if it is going to be a pleasant experience I don't mind it for few years please let me know .

Thanks

Hi All,
RAK is a quite place to live.
There a few bars around the area plus the fact that there are shops there where you can buy beer & bring it home without the need of having a license. *most people in dubai travel to RAK to buy alcohol for home parties*
plus the fact its only an hour & a half away from Dubai.

so incase you get bored you can always take a bus ride and tour the busy streets of Dubai!

Hi Guys

I am moving with my wife and kids to RAK in October, aged 8 and 6, thinking of moving to Al Hamra Village, does anyone know a good school, is Al Hamra a good area, what other areas should I look at. Can you only get beerin hotels, or can you take it home from a shop?

KR

I'm in Dubai now, only been here few months and have been apartment hunting...we're also considering the move out to RAK. Any suggestions on where to look for a nice apartment? We just need a 1 bedroom. I saw some that looked nice on dubizzle in "royal breeze" Al Hamra...but any other suggestions? any brand new buildings around?
