Ashwath & Anu Based on my 11 years experience in Abu Dhabi - UAE, these are some reasons why a lot of Indians go and stay there :

1. No Income Tax. Even the Europeans and Americans are attracted by it. I have worked with a lot of them there.

2. Agreed that the income should not be multiplied by 12/13 and the savings should be. But that itself is great especially if you do not belong to software industry. Take for instance one of my collegues, an Andhra chap who used to work in India in the oil and gas sector. His sister was not getting married because of dowry issue. He and his parents were troubled. I suggested that he look for job in UAE. He got a job in March ' 06. Now he is able to afford the dowry and his sister getting married in December.

3. Like Sanjeev said before, although far east has Indian influence, people from any part of India will get food of their choice equivalent to restraurants in India.

4. The % of Indian population is so great that even if you know only hindi (and malayalam of course) you can get by in the initial days in a new country.

5. Sections of Indian Society who will never be able to go to europe / USA etc. can get the flavour of their lifestyle. I know a chap who used to work as document controller in Bangalore. He was only 10th std. pass. He could have never gone abroad if UAE market was not open to people like him.

6. Initially when I landed in UAE, one old timer Indian asked me how long will I be there ? I told him 5 years max. Then he asked me are you planning to bring your family. When I replied in affirmative, he replied that I would be staying a long time there. When I asked him why, he said that the attraction for family ( compared to India )here is :

a. No Power Cuts
b. No Mosquitos
c. Better Lifestyle
d. More safe for Women

Even now my wife still agrees to it.

7. I couldn't resist this. The pubs are open till 3 AM. In bangalore it closes at 11 PM.
