Dubai or Abu Dhabi??

Hi all. Could you all please provide the pros and cons of living in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Has anyone lived or spent enough time in both cities to know which city offers a better lifestyle or would be the preferred choice given that the pay is the same for both cities?

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Shouldn't it be EK or EY?

If the question is EK or that other one, then EK. If the question is Abu Dhabi or Dubai, then Abu Dhabi.

Those who live in DXB can't understand how anyone could live in AUH.......and vice versa. Don't forget that AUH is an island and there is a shortage of even silly priced accom. on the island.
I always thought there was more greenery, thanks to Sheikh Zayed!
However, it's out in the sand that the development is happening.

My money is on AUH!

This is a little off topic but could be beneficial to those arguing that AD is a better place to live. I have 2 tickets to the Grand Prix in AD that I can't get to. The face value for the 2 tickets is 500. I will accept 350 for the pair. If you're interested then get in touch.

Aside from the lesser population is there any difference in employment opportunities for a female spouse in AUH? With or without professional qualifications.
