What do expats find most challenging?

Answer this Question

We asked expats and digital nomads what they find the most challenging about the local culture in Arabian Ranches. They wrote...

"Expats in Arabian Ranches, often find the language barrier to be a significant challenge, as Arabic is the official language and not everyone is fluent in English. The strict adherence to Islamic customs and traditions can also be difficult for some to adjust to, particularly in terms of dress code and behavior in public. The extreme heat during the summer months can be physically challenging for those not accustomed to such climates. Additionally, the hierarchical nature of Emirati society, where age and position are highly respected, can be a cultural adjustment for expats. Lastly, the restrictions on alcohol consumption and the prohibition of pork can also be challenging for some expats," remarked another expat who made the move to Arabian Ranches, the UAE.
