Default New to Dubai - Looking to meet people

Dear all,

I have been living and working in London for an international hotel chain for a few years now.

I am relocating to Dubai on the 4th Jan 2008 for a minimum of 2 years. I do not know anyone over there, therefore I would like to start networking with people that are moving or currently in Dubai as I am a very sociable person.

I am 29 years old male, coming from Greece, I am into hotel management, and into enjoying life generally, which is mailny the reason why I live in London (amazing city). I am hoping Dubai is just as exciting, in its own way, which I am really looking forward to discover.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon

Best regards,

Stelios

Default Hello Solowista_07

Thanks for your reply.

It is nice to see that people are enjoying Dubai. I do expect to be very busy over there, however I expect to also have a good time. Please provide your email address so we can communicate and meet up when I am there.

Is it easy meeting people over there or everyone hangs around only with people from their own country? London is also multicultural as you know however there is a lot of interaction between people from different countries.

I am realy excited moving over there and I hope I will adjust to the Dubai reality quite quickly.

Anymore people out there that would like to meet up? I am arriving in Dubai the 4th of January, however I have not finalised the date yet, it has to be before the 7th since this the first day of my employment.

Hey Stelios

Dubai is an easy place to enjoy a lot of fun times - although (from my experience so far) people tend to stick to their own little groups but that shouldnt be much of a challenge for a sociable person!!

Hello All

My name is Alise and I was hoping someone could tell me what it is like living and especially working in Dubai. My Partner and I are hoping to relocate to Dubai from Australia. My partner is an Engineer and will most probably find work before me, would you suggest that I wait to find work once I am over there. I have a background in working in hotels, i have worked for Intercontinental Hotels for 4 years. Does anyone have any advice?

After reading everyones replies I am so excited at the thought of moving to Dubai. Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers

Hi all in the forum,

ive been here for almost 10 months and first it was very easy for me to find a group of friends...but they went back to their home and during past few months its been really tight time for me to find new friends...though most people are elcoming here but they are still abit shy to start up a conversation and i think thats why some find it difficult to meet up new ones.

am i right?
