If you're thinking of utilising the Metro service to get to Burj Khalifa then you need to look at the map HERE especially as to which line, you'll need the RED line.

You can get on this line at the end of the route at Rashidiya, where there is ample parking, seems to be very popular with people coming from Sharjah side of town.

Whilst the GREEN line terminus is nearer to Sharjah, using that line would mean changing onto the Red line thus increasing the Metro travel time.

Thanks a lot!
My problem is basically that I can't afford 90%+/of places due to my very strict budget and various room rent limitations(only female,only pakistani,etc..).
What I've found is way too far (international city)or not so clearly explained both on the ad as by person on whatsapp.

Firstly I am new to posting, I have read all the stickies and most of nearly all the details on renting a villa/ apt in dubai, my hubby is coming over soon having just accepted a contract, the housing allowance part is between 230-250 paid upfront as 1 cheque,, we would like to put our kids in the DUBAI BRITISH SCHOOL,( yes we have already made representation to the school for next year,,, my questions are as follows

1 has anybody made the trip from greens to the DBS at 0700 school run, is it busy, time taken, etc

2 has anybody any personal experiences of the greens, you seem to get more bang for your buck/ however flip that with distance from school etc / time taken could be an issue if it's tail to tail,,, on google maps it states 15 mins on a normal day,,,from greens to DBS. that time would be fine for me, but if say it's 40 mins that's a problem for the kids getting up etc.



3. Are the facilities as good as the ones at the meadows, ie supermarket coffee shops, doctor gym etc

Any help or us full advice on the above topic would be greatly appreciated,, I know most ofwat I asked is in the stickies somewhere, but I really wanted somebody's personal experience if that's possible,,, thank you in advance

Hi Just wondering how you are getting on? Did you move into the Greens? How are the Schools etc? reason I ask is that we are at the initial stage investigating where to stay where to book the kids in etc. Thinking of leaving Ireland to take up a role over there but with two kids and a dog we have a lot of planning - Dave

I am looking for book reviewers - if you would like to provide a review, please message, and I will send you the Epub or Mobi file.

Thanks!

I can review this book for you. I can't seem to PM you. Maybe you need more posts to activate that feature.

The Address Hotel - Serviced Residency
 
I have been looking at the serviced residences at The Address Hotel in Dubai Marina.

Whilst this is a residency as opposed to a hotel room, due to the fact that is says serviced, what utilities could i expect to be included in the cost?

I have been in a serviced apartment in The Bonnington in JLT since September, this is one price per month with all utilities included and a parking space.

I am assuming the The Address Hotel will be exactly the same.

Any reason why Jumeirah Village cirlce townhouses/apartments seem so cheap compared to similar size places in silicon oasis/sports city etc? I am seeing 4 bedroom places with 50% more space going for 50K less...

whats the catch?

Hi all,

I was wondering the same about JVC. I can't believe prices are so low, there must be a catch :)

I work in JLT and currently reside in Tecom, so I either take the metro or a cab if it's one of those lazy mornings. As I don't have a car yet, I wonder if it's convenient to catch a cab from JVC to JLT in the mornings?

Thanks!
