Dubai Media City
Dine, chill and people-watch in one of the most creative areas in Dubai. Dubai Media City offers a combination of café culture, street-food dining and buzzing eateries, all set against the high-rise back-drop of Dubai Marina. You can almost smell the creativity amongst this community of advertising executives, journalists and designers from the many local and international agencies and publishing houses located in the area.
Slightly further afield, Dubai Marina is a mix of residential, hotels and retail building, all encased within some impressive hi-rise modern architecture. Its extensive collection of impressive buildings form the skyline of new Dubai and culminate in a beachfront destination of hotels and holiday residences. Walk to the beach or take the tram through the Marina, this holiday destination is a heady mix of beachfront bliss and buzzing traffic jams.
For a touch of greenery and residential luxury, head over to the Emirates Living community, which includes Emirates Hills, The Greens, The Lakes, The Meadows and The Springs. Families, cyclists, runners and golfers can all be found in the area’s many outdoors facilities which include golf courses, parks, running tracks and dog-walking areas. It’s a peaceful and quiet community with lots of trees and areas to experience some peace and tranquility
Jumeirah Lakes Towers
Close to the metro line and across from Dubai Marina, JLT as it is known, is a diverse community of office blocks, residential apartments, leisure and recreation locations, and dining experiences. This multi-cultural area of greenery, recreation and independent food outlets is still growing, and has become a popular place to live and work among young, upcoming professionals who are looking for a neighborhood with a vibrant social buzz.
