How close-knit is the expat community in this area? How do I get involved with it?
Due to its smaller size, Abu Dhabi has a "village" atmosphere where practically every member of the expat community knows each other. Usually the best way to enter the expat community is via work contacts and networking functions.
Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?
Besides local business groups, the best manner of plugging into the social pipeline is by joining various health/beach clubs and common interest groups, such as running (hashing), rugby clubs, etc.
Where can I meet other singles in this city?
Local pubs/restaurants, health clubs, sports events, etc.
Are there any unique networking opportunities for accompanying partners?
Coffee mornings arranged by the spouses' company/common interest groups. Ask Crown Abu Dhabi about their coffee mornings!
