  • Safety in Bahrain

    Hi Joshua
    Am wondering why your fiance would say that - has she been here, or does she know anyone else living here? You are right to seek a 2nd opinion. I have been living here for almost one year already and the only danger is of having too much fun and alcohol in the evenings since there are loads of places to go and watch live bands, a favourite pastime of mine.
    I don't know anywhere that could be described as completely safe to live these days - but I am a woman who lives alone and have not had any problems. I also read the paper daily and talk to people from all over the world who live here, and apart from blatant discrimination between the two main Islamic sects, and against the poorer Asian workers, there is nothing really to worry about. Economically and technologically the place is really booming, with some very impressive new projects springing up all over the place - see Bahrain Financial Harbour, World Trade Center, Al Areen etc. etc. is quite a useful site to continue your research. Good luck!

    I am thinking of setting up a small enterprise as a welcome/social group for newcomers to Bahrain and was just about to offer it up to see if there would be any demand (I suspect there would, but not everyone comes on this website!). What do you think - would you use such a service, to help you get settled?

  • Finding a good job in the UAE are near there

    I am a Canadian and professional accountant with 15 year of private experience and am seeking to work in the ME particularly inUAE. Can anyone advise me the best route to find work? I live in Vancouver and so far I have been sending resumes to recruiters which have been ineffective. Should I just go to Dubai and spend a month there and do my job search there?
