I’m loving my experience of working remotely and travelling so far! A packed day of activities followed by work until the late hours can be taxing at times. However, I’d much rather be doing this than commuting through LA traffic daily!
A few thoughts for consideration:
- US PST work hours in Dubai were 8pm – 2am. The Wi-Fi was great for work and VoIP calls so I didn’t see the need to buy a local sim card.
- The majority of Dubai’s residents are expats, English is the business language so it’s easy to get around.
- Prices are equivalent to the US, if not more expensive. Discount brands from the US/UK are charging premium prices in Dubai.
- Uber is great here! You’re picked up in a luxury Lexus. Unlike most other places in the world, the drivers are employees of the company and not self-employed. Uber are in partnership with Dubai Taxi.
Next Stop – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
