Palm Jumeirah

Viewed from above, the manmade island resembles a stylised palm tree, which was built from reclaimed land mass and a series of artificial archipelagos. Palm Jumeirah is home to some of Dubai's most luxurious resorts, including Atlantis The Palm, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, the One&Only The Palm and many more. It is also packed with fantastic dining options worth visiting, such as Nobu and 101 Dining Lounge even if you’re not staying at one of the many resorts. The Palm is well developed – with roads, tunnels and public transport. So you can easily access the various hotels, restaurants and attractions on the island. You can also hop aboard the Palm Monorail that runs to Atlantis that sits at the helm. Sailing around Palm Jumeirah in a yacht or speedboat is also a popular option, with many private touring companies to choose from. Thrill-seekers can even skydive above the island for a truly unique experience.

Deira & Bur Dubai

One of Dubai’s oldest neighbourhoods, a commercial district flanked by Dubai’s busy saline creek and an area where traditions remain unchanged from the significant changes that took place in the city from the ‘oil boom.’ What was once a sleepy fishing village, formed when members of the Bani Yas tribe (led by the Maktoum family) settled at the mouth of the creek in 1883, at that time the main industries were fishing and pearling. Over time the fishing village expanded and by the early twentieth century, the creek was home to a busy port, where ships would come from as far as Africa and India to trade. It is this melting pot of cultures, traditions and global influences that show just how multifaceted a city Dubai is.

In a city that’s full of awe-striking buildings, Dubai Marina stands out as the home to some of Dubai’s newest and most fascinating buildings and attractions where visitors can relax in comfort and luxury along the waterfront. Dubai Marina is a relatively new attraction in Dubai. It’s characterised by a dramatic skyline of skyscrapers and residential apartment blocks, and looks particularly impressive when illuminated at night. With many constructions still in development, Dubai Marina is changing all the time but there’s always something for visitors to explore and enjoy. One of the best ways to see Dubai Marina is simply to walk around it. The marina area has been built with several kilometres of walkways, ideal for an afternoon stroll or a moonlight walk after a romantic meal. Throughout the day and night, visitors flock to Dubai Marina for its world-beating selection of restaurants, cafes and shops. There are occasional markets in Dubai Marina as well and it is also popular to hire a yacht to enjoy a cruise around the area.
