Downtown Dubai

If you travel to the UAE for a couple of days or even less, here you will see all the most important things. Dubai's newest district is built like a halo around the tallest tower in the world, Burj Khalifa. At its foot is the famous fountain show, as well as the largest shopping center in the Middle East, Dubai Mall with a huge aquarium and hundreds of shops. The area is a well-kept walking boulevard among the skyscrapers. Tourists come Downtown in the evening when you can watch the sunset from the observation deck of the tower, and an unforgettable show of Dubai fountains begins at its foot. The city goes into night mode. It is absolutely safe to walk here even after sunset, there is always a festive atmosphere around. The central district has become a whole “city within a city”. Its original purpose was to become the commercial and financial center not only of the United Arab Emirates but of the entire business world.

Please note that renting an apartment in Downtown Dubai makes sense when the purpose of your visit to the emirate is to participate in events and visit the main attractions and have an active nightlife. For those who want to lie on the beach all day long and rest from the bustle of the city, it is better to choose another neighborhood.

This is perhaps the most fashionable part of the city. Jumeirah has the most luxurious villas. For example, the Beckham couple bought property here. Also, the famous Burj Al Arab Hotel, known to us as the Sail, and the huge Wild Wadi Water Park are located in Jumeirah.

Jumeirah has several beaches. For example, Jumeirah Beach and Jumeirah Beach Park. Moreover, the Jumeirah area is close to the main attractions of Dubai.

The most beautiful part of the most elite area of ​​Dubai is the artificial island of Palm Jumeirah. On the “trunk” of a palm tree around is a typical multi-story building in the Arabic style. Further, “palm leaves” begin to depart from the “trunk”, where private villas are located. Entrance to this territory is closed to outsiders, only the owners and their guests are allowed. From the side of the "trunk", there is no view of them, therefore, privacy in the area is ensured. Real estate here is especially popular among foreigners.

Most of our villas are located here. Go to the "Book now" page to view accommodation options. You can also just contact us and our managers will select an apartment or villa for you specifically.

Dubai Marina

This area is called "Dubai Manhattan". There is no Arabic flavor here at all, but there are a lot of unusual skyscrapers. The most beautiful are the swirling Cayan Tower and the high-rise building with a round dome, the Princess Tower. Skyscrapers look especially beautiful after sunset. The main reason for choosing this area is the beach. Dubai Marina has its beach and you can walk to it from almost anywhere in the area. Parallel to the beach, there is a very beautiful promenade for walking. You can walk with children without fear of cars. A distinctive feature of the area is the marina with moored yachts, which stretches for 3.5 kilometers. According to some estimates, it is considered one of the most beautiful and largest harbors in the world.

To sum it up, it is important to choose an area in Dubai depending on the purpose of your trip. If you came to the UAE for a beach holiday, then settle as close to the coast as possible. Do not think that you can walk 30 minutes to the sea. In the Emirates, and Dubai in particular, the average summer temperature is 50℃. Not surprisingly, the locals mostly travel by car. Related to this is another inconvenience of hiking in Dubai, the lack of sidewalks.

We would like to devote a separate paragraph to security. Dubai is undoubtedly one of the safest cities in the world and has a low crime rate. You can move around any area of ​​the city at any time of the day without fear. In the ranking of the crime rate of the popular site, Dubai is in 14th place out of 347 possible, and in the first place is Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. In the Global Peace Index, which shows the general peacefulness of the countries of the world, the UAE is in 65th place.

But that doesn't mean you can test security yourself and not exercise reasonable discretion. The dangers lie not at all in attacks or thefts, but in more common things:

  • carefully cross the road, they drive here at wild speeds and do not always give way to a pedestrian even at a green light;

  • do not forget about the rules of behavior in public, after all, the country is Muslim, although not radical;

  • pay attention to the prohibition signs and do not violate their instructions.

Be safe and have a great holiday!
