It’s hardly surprising, considering the Downtown vibe is extremely popular for those seeking a taste of the Dubai lifestyle. With weekend activities ranging from a browse in the world’s largest shopping mall, to admiring views from the Burj Khalifa and exploring under the sea in Dubai aquarium; the possibilities are endless in this area of town.

Plenty to do nearby, too!
Downtown Dubai is one of the most pedestrian-friendly areas in terms of nearby amenities, but if you’re looking to venture further afield it couldn’t be easier! Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall metro station is right at your feet and Business Bay is just one stop down the road. If you’re travelling out of the country, you can be at Dubai Airport in under 20 minutes by car and Mall of the Emirates is the same duration (just in the other direction), if you need a lower key shopping experience than Dubai Mall occasionally. As for JBR and Dubai Marina, these areas are both just a 25-minute commute if you feel the need for a change of scenery or a touch of Beach-based sunshine.
