Our apartment is a beautiful unit in a brand new apartment. It has one bedroom plus a study. We also have a couch that converts into a queen sized bed. The best part of the apartment however is its location. We are literally steps away from the Burj Khalifa (full Burj view from our balcony) as well as the Dubai Mall, Dubai Fountains, and Souk Al Bahar. We are right in the middle of all the action and just minutes away from world class restaurants, bars, and entertainment. There is a metro stop across the street from our building. The metro is very clean and new and is a great, reliable, and affordable way to get around Dubai.
Dubai is known for it's stunning beaches- our apartment is a very short cab ride away from multiple public beaches and private beach clubs/pools. Our building has a lovely pool, hot tub, sauna, gym, BBQ area, and sun loungers.
If you want to experience the beauty of the desert, take a trip with Arabian Adventures- a company that hosts desert safaris, day trips, and excursions! http://www.ArabianAdventuresDubai.com/
If shopping is what you are interested in, then Dubai is the place for you. The largest mall in the world, The Dubai Mall, is home to every shop imaginable. Connected to it is the stunning Souk Al Bahar, a traditional Arabian market. Our apartment is a 10 minute walk to the Dubai Mall.
My favorite place in Dubai is a gorgeous souk and promenade right on the Arabian Gulf called Madinat Jumeirah. http://www.jumeirah.com/en/Hotels-and-Resorts/Destinations/Dubai/Madinat-Jumeirah/Madinat-Souk/?cm_mmc=“Cluster%20–%20PPC”%20-_-Souk%20Madinat%20Jumeirah-_-Shopping-_-souk%20madinat
At Madinat Jumeirah, you can enjoy shopping, first class restaurants, a beautiful promenade bustling with nightlife, or a cocktail to watch the sunset over the stunning Gulf. You can also take a traditional Abra boat ride through the waterways of Madinat Jumeirah to transport you from one bar to another!
