Here you are, one of the newest entrants to the bustling emirate of Dubai, a skyscraper city in what was once a desert land. As you move through the airport you are taken in by its subdued splendor. At last you are cleared to go and you step out into the desert sun. You hail a taxi and give the driver the name of your hotel.

All things considered, renting an apartment, villa or other property in Dubai is definitely cheaper than buying. You would have to consider the rent, location and related expenses of travelling to work for the grownups and schooling for the kids etc. In other words, it depends on whether you are alone or with family, for short or long term stay.
