Tips and Advice on the UAE from Your Fellow South Korean Expats

Obviously, expat life in the UAE goes well beyond shipping your belongings and taking care of red tape. Socializing with fellow Koreans is an important facet of living abroad and can be a huge stepping stone in getting to know the Emirati mentality and way of life. Koreans in the UAE are a part of our community, calling cities such as Dubai, Sharyah, Abu Dhabi, and many others home. You can use InterNations to look for fellow Koreans in Abu Dhabi, for example.
