I am from India and will be moving to UAE in the next two months, mainly for the reasons of better quality of life. FYI, I am not fond of going to night clubs or bars. I mainly work from home. I am looking for cleaner air, better quality of food and choice(e.g, Organic stuff), quality of products and services, recreation areas for my 5 year old kid on weekends, reasonably good school for my kid, better traffic, no power cuts, personal security ...basically all the basic things you miss in India. I know UAE is not the best in any of these, but from my visit last month to Dubai it is far far ahead of India in all these things. So Dubai is a no brainer, but someone pointed out I can also consider Sharjah as I do not need a perfect expat living from my preferences. But I read Sharjah has power cuts and chaotic traffic, for instance. Considering my priorities, I need to know how the real situation on ground. Any advice is welcome !
