also what what are you looking for in the way of perks or values that are currently represented by other companies in the Dubai area .

my offer is around 50,000 u s dollars plus 40 percent bonus .

At that salary I am assuming you are coming in at a pretty senior level. Restaurant staff get paid around $4K/year in basic salary plus housing (and tips are next to nothing) to give you some perspective.

Personally, a company telling me I am looking at that type of bonus always concerns me. A bonus is a bonus and there is no real obligation to pay you that money. If housing is included 50K is a workable salary and I think probably pretty reasonable in that industry, without housing it is a stretch

Addi....I think it depends on how luxurious you want your life to be. I am moving to Dubai in November and I've found many places that are affordable....now I'm not sure if the area these places are in are nice or not but my salary package is almost exactly like his and I've worked out a budget where I can live comfortably and still put money in savings. I don't plan on going out drinking and partying every night but do plan on seeing new sights and having some fun. Please give me some advice if you think I'm way off base. Thank you
