Kissing the UAE goodbye!!! It's been a rollercoaster of a time out here, with the last 6 months especially hectic. Overall, working in certain places in the Middle East can be rewarding, both for travels and the cultural adventure. Remember to do your homework first! The pay packages are tax-free and should include housing and flights to originating country. There seems to be a trend towards lumping all benefits together into the salary, which can look nice at first, but quickly dwindles with soaring rent prices, school fees (if applicable), cost of living and getting settled (furniture, vehicle, phone, internet, etc.). Jobs that take care of relocation costs, annual flights home, housing and children schooling fees have the 'best' packages, but seem to be getting less common according to many expats. With close proximity to Europe, Asia and Africa, combined with relatively cheap flights, you will definitely get lots of opportunities to travel!!!
