Rising Cost of Living in Dubai and the UAE

The United Arab Emirates is currently one of the hot spots for tourists to visit but it is a changing story for those who come to stay.

As this site has international readers, some of whom are contemplating coming to live in the UAE, I am posting some links to articles and reader’s responses that report the rising cost of living.

While some of the price increases relate only to Dubai others are national costs that impact on all people living in the UAE.
