What should I pack when moving to Palm Jumeirah?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Palm Jumeirah to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Palm Jumeirah, you should pack lightweight and breathable clothing due to the hot and humid climate. Include items such as shorts, t-shirts, and sandals for casual wear. For formal occasions or business meetings, pack smart, conservative clothing respecting the local customs. Women should have a shawl or scarf for covering their shoulders when needed. Don't forget to pack your swimwear, as Palm Jumeirah is known for its beautiful beaches. Also, include sun protection items like sunglasses, hats, and a high SPF sunscreen. Pack all your essential toiletries, although most items can be easily purchased there. If you take prescription medication, bring enough to last for your initial period, along with a copy of your prescription. Remember to pack your important documents such as passport, visa, driver's license, and medical records. Also, bring a copy of your employment contract if you're moving for work. Pack your electronics like your laptop, phone, and chargers. An adapter plug for UAE sockets would also be useful. If you're moving with kids, pack their favorite toys, books, and other comfort items to help them adjust to the new environment. Lastly, pack some non-perishable food items from your home country, especially if they are not easily available in the UAE. This will help you feel more at home in your new surroundings," commented one expat who made the move to Palm Jumeirah, the UAE.
