I worked in Dubai for three years with a engineering company. I earned about 27000 Dirhams per month with a portion of that being directly deposited in the UK for my wife and children who elected to stay there. I lived very well, bought an apartment, drove a BMW, went out to eat a couple of times per week and still saved about a third on my total income over the three year period. I heard from colleagues that the schools there are great and endless and lucrative opportunities for professional people. My family did not come with me because of the extremely hot weather, loss of friends and extended family contact and my wife's understandable attachment to her medical career in the UK.
