What should I pack when moving to UAE?

Answer this Question

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

"I would definitely bring some shampoos from Europe as the quality of them over here is doubtful unless you buy them in salons. I would take many of my own language books to read - however one can easily find English good literature. I would take hair color as I am blond and the choices of blond hair colors in shops is poor. I would take plenty of patience over here especially while driving. Leave clothes, shoes, bags and cooking pots home," said another expat in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

"Bring: Another voltage converter, more garden tools and gardening supplies, and hair color Leave home: bicyles, blankets, winter clothes," wrote a member who made the move to Abu Dhabi, UAE.
