Hello, I am Rishabh, i am 22 years old.

I would get here first, then decide on where to live... maybe try taking the bus from AD to Dubai a few times, have a chat with your new colleagues about where they live and the upside/downside to that.

Congratulations on your new job! You will have to live in AD if you have a government/semi-government job as your housing allowance will be dependent in you having a Tawtheeq lease on an AD property.

The road between the two cities is crazy at rush hour, so I suggest you stay in AD and venture up to Dubai at weekends

Good luck!

You would go mad commuting everyday, so stick with Abudhabi near your work place. You can visit Dubai during weekends or holidays.

There are some halfway residential areas like Al Ghadeer between Dubai & AD

But as prior post said, you best check if you are required to reside in AD.

If you are working in Abu Dhabi you should live in abu dhabi as well.

Commuting everyday from Dubai to Abu Dhabi is not easy.
