Ultimate Dubai Guide by Neighborhood

May 03, 2020
What do you think of the Middle East? Miles and miles of desert sand? Busy marketplaces? Camels traveling about with carrying all sorts of luxurious goods? These are the images imbedded to people's minds since the very beginning. And while it makes for an exotic and dreamy image of the region, it's only just a part of it. Another part is that of a glimmering metropolis. A modern hub full of innovation and progress, all while adhering to the centuries-old traditions that are at the heart of the Middle East. Specifically, this is Dubai, and if you want to live here, here are some places you can call home!

Ultimate Dubai Guide by Neighborhood

 

Business Bay

Let's start with the area that probably made it possible for Dubai to be the luxurious Middle Eastern epicenter that it is today, its Business hub. Or, specifically, its Business Bay. If you think that New York's Wall Street was impressive, wait until you've seen this beautiful district up close and personal. More than just an urban haven for business and finance people alike, it's a visual feast of man-made marvels and stunning architectural feats. Here, you won't just feel the big money, you'll actually see it with its magnificent skyline. This is the place if you want to spend or earn big money!

Downtown Dubai

If living a more urban yet less uptight lifestyle is more your jam, just move to Downtown Dubai! The vibe here is lively and active, with all sorts of activities on offer. If you're single and you just want to have fun, the nightlife scene here is quite epic. The neighborhood is also home to a lot of festivals, meaning you won't get bored here if you're staying all-year! For the whole family, there's also a ton of activities they can partake in. Ice-skate on the rink, shop at the Dubai Mall, the biggest of its kind in the world, and more!

Dubai Design District

As with any other major city, there will always be a specific hub reserved for the creatives. Won't it be just a bore if the city is all business and finance? A city like Dubai will need some art and fashion to jazz things up, making it a more inviting place to visit for millions of other tourists out there. And if you're a creative yourself and you want to stay in Dubai, consider the city's Design District as your home. Dominated by galleries, art studios, designers' ateliers, and more, it's both an aspirational and inspirational area to be in!

Dubai Marina

There's a certain area in Dubai that has a nightlife scene that's a little different than most major cities'. And what's even cooler is that this area is right beside a stunning bay. Yep, it's the Dubai Marina. In the afternoon, it makes for a stunning area full of first-class culinary establishments, swanky bars, and more. Just about any spot here is perfect to watch the sunset in its natural glory. But by nightfall, these same spots turn into lively nightlife hang-outs, especially since most of them stay open until midnight. Ultimately, it's a rather wholesome take on nightlife.

Jumeirah Beach Residence 

Speaking of a coastal lifestyle, Dubai has another neighborhood you can still stay in if you're one to enjoy the sea often.  It's the Jumeirah Beach Residence. And just like what the name says, it's an urban area near the beach. But it's not your ordinary coastal town neither. Funnily enough, the neighborhood is just as urban and cosmopolitan as the earlier spots on this list. It's just nearer to the beach. It has its fair share of high-class restaurants, modern art galleries, al-fresco cafes, and more. In a way, it might not even feel like a beachfront town, and perhaps, this is the ultimate charm of the place!

Jumeirah Lake Towers

You've probably seen a lot of places similar to the Jumeirah Lake Towers. A collection of high-rise towers, you might think that there's nothing all that exciting about the place. Still, you'd want to live there because it's a nice area and it's near the many important places within the city. However, upon closer inspection, you'll realize that this neighborhood, affectionately nicknamed as 'JLT,' has its own fair share of charms just waiting to be discovered. Think upstart restaurant selling their own food. Start-up fashion brands ready to make their stamp on the retail world. Despite its open spot, there are a lot of undiscovered and hidden gems here just waiting to be explored.

Media City

Make no mistake, though the "Media City' in Dubai is dominated by the big networks and world news conglomerates, it's not as stuffy an area as it may appear. The media isn't all about TV and the news, after all! For one thing. it's also live music. And every now and again, you might just find that a nice band or a famous group might be performing in the area. And what of theater? You can watch many plays staged here too. Of course, if you work in any of the big networks and news conglomerates previously mentioned, this is the best place for you to stay in while in Dubai!

Old Dubai

With all the big business and skyscrapers that Dubai has become, it's far from the Middle East you've read about in books or seen in the movies. it's not here where you'll find the exotic culture that's dreamy and delightful. And in many ways, that's the point of the city. To take this centuries-old region to the present and into the future! Still, it'd be nice to see and feel that culture amidst all this modernity. Fortunately, there's still 'Old Dubai.' A picture of what the region was probably like before innovation and technology took over, this is a beautiful neighborhood that you shouldn't miss when you're here!

The Palm Jumeirah

Finally, arguably the most iconic neighborhood in all of Dubai: The Palm Jumeirah. You've probably seen a bird's eye view of it on social media or even just on the internet. And what a sight to behold it is, isn't it? If you want to talk about man-made marvels, this should definitely be on top of your list. But what is it like to actually live here? Well, think high-end hotels, luxury spas, five-star restaurants, upscale nightclubs, high fashion shopping, and the like. This is, perhaps, the most luxurious area in all of Dubai. No question about it!
