If you do decide on moving to Dubai then the cold and wet weather is unlikely to bother you again. From the comfort of your Dubai villa you are in the ideal position to soak up the sun, enjoy long, leisurely days and see various ailments alleviated.

Retiring to Dubai could also have financial benefits as there is no income Tax on pension income. Some retirees moving to Dubai do so because they have family living there already and want to get closer to them. In addition, there are lots of activities and sights to keep you busy as well as the perfect environment for taking things easy.
