The team at Dubai Survival Guide live and breathe Dubai! We're loyal to a country that has given us opportunities like no other. Of course there are issues we've had to resolve and we are here to help you bypass these frustrations by pointing you in the right direction for every living requirement in Dubai, from what to look out for when speaking to a real estate agent to what water to drink (and why) and the boring stuff like pensions and insurance. We're here to help you navigate the Dubai maze in an informative way. If you can't see what you're looking for, send us an email. This website is a 'work in progress', constantly being updated and new content being added almost every day. Please visit us often.
