The UAE has more food and beverage outlets per capita than anywhere else in the world. But don’t let that put you off. The Emirates, and Dubai in particular, has an insatiable appetite for eating out. Around a third of residents eat out on average at least two to three times per week. What’s more, 17 percent eat out or order takeaway every single day.
This is one of the low investment ideas on this list. You don’t need a huge initial outlay to sate the appetite of Dubai’s army of diners – you could open a food truck, market stall, or cafeteria.

Dubai’s real estate industry is famed for its impressive returns. After a relatively slow period, some areas in Dubai are returning yields of more than six percent — that’s higher than many major cities including London, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

There are other opportunities here too, outside of investment. The introduction of long-term visas, along with the relaxing of foreign ownership rules is likely to increase the number of expatriates in Dubai, which in turn increases the demand for property management services.
