Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the United Arab Emirates and is becoming a very popular tourist and work destination. Summer temperatures can be extremely hot with the months from September to March the most suitable for being out and about in this lovely city. Having said that the vast majority of homes, businesses and schools have air conditioning as standard. The general idea of Abu Dhabi as a desert-like destination is often far from the truth.
Due to the affluent nature of Abu Dhabi and the need for qualified overseas professionals to fill various roles within the city, there are many employment possibilities available. Teaching positions are very popular with overseas workers and most schools in the city have a number of expatriates on the staff. Working hours tend to be very similar to typical Western positions and accommodation is often part of the employment package. Of course, outside of working hours, Abu Dhabi is also a very exciting and cosmopolitan city to enjoy.
