  1. Dubai Expat Forum for Expats Living in Dubai
    Hi All, There is already great stuff on this forum about the topic but I have failed to find something recent and I get the sense things change very quickly in Dubai. I will be moving to Dubai in a few weeks and the Marina is the favoured destination. Is there any current or planned major...
  2. Dubai Expat Forum for Expats Living in Dubai
    Hello I'm looking to move into Elite Residence in Dubai Marina near media city. I wanted to check some questions so wondering if anyone lives there or has lived there? The apartment in looking faces a nearly finished building under construction, loads of apartments facing this on lower floors...

    Just a quick question? Where is the best places to look online for apartments just so I can get a general idea? Also not sure if anyone knows this but does anyone know what the area is called around Alma's tower? I think it's the marina but not sure.

    Hi all, I have searched and read through all posts concerning JBR (I think, sorry if I missed anything - have googled other forums too) and I need your help in deciding which tower to go for. Of all the apartments I have viewed so far I haven´t really liked any (Diamonds, Marina View, Bay...

    Hi all, This might have been raised before, however I was not able to find a similar thread. I have just moved to Dubai and I am looking for an apartment. However, I must have sent over 20 mails on Dubizzle ads, and got only one reply back! Tried calling some as well, but nobody has picked...

    Time for a new thread. This is the 'official' thread for new expat introductions and making friends. Post here if you are new to Dubai (or to Expatforum.com) and tell us a little bit about yourself! Where do you come from? How long you've been in Dubai for? Did you move here on your own or...
  9. Dubai Expat Forum for Expats Living in Dubai
    We are new to Dubai and looking for a large, nice apartment in the Marina area. Something over 2500 sq ft in a nice well built building, must have a maids room and would much rather be looking over water than another building or construction zone. Our budget is fairly flexible but not quite...

    I thought that this might be useful for the forum, as it is a topic that comes up a lot, and is probably too big to be a section of the "read before posting" sticky. When first coming to Dubai, one of the first things many people do is decide where to live. Depending on where they are coming...

    I have seen a few posts about dogs being prohibited from walking around Dubai Marina but I was just checking to see if anyone knew for sure if there were restrictions/rules regarding walking a dog around the marina. Or where I might find any information pertaining to the issue. Thanks!

    To my surprise I just found a private one on one swimming lessons for my children in the Marina. Didn't think there was any. He is very good and fully qualified. My two boys started yesterday and they loved it.

    I am considering JLT as a location. How lively is JLT? What's the percentage of females there? and how much of it is still under construction? Plus how well known is it for people NOT living in JLT? I am finding JLT less pricey than I thought it would be. which, since we are in Dubai, is...

    Hello Forum, I'd like to find out if you all have got details of good and trustworthy agents (with whom you've ideally had dealings) for Marina/JBR properties (flats) to recommend? Please feel free to PM in the event that recommending constitutes a breach of the terms of the forum - although...
