The sights and sounds of Dubai Marina
The impressive Dubai Marina is a manmade city-within-a-city. Tourists and residents are enjoying the cosmopolitan vibe and the refreshing lifestyle that this unique seaside community is offering. Towering skyscrapers, luxurious yachts, the best dining and leisure places make Dubai Marina the place to be.
A dhow cruise dinner is one of the best ways to see and feel the beautiful and vibrant life of this mix-use community. Cruising down the 3-kilometer long canal, a dhow cruise lets you enjoy the beautiful views of New Dubai while indulging in a unique dining experience on a traditional wooden dhow.
Home of the Dubai Marina Yacht Club, the Dubai Marina shows you endless rows of luxurious white yachts lining the docks. It is simply a sight to behold as you cruise along the waters on your dhow. Luxury yachts of all shapes and sizes lining the canal add a deluxe feel to the place. Some of these yachts can be rented for a fee to take you on a cruise around The Palm Island.
The Dubai Marina Walk is where a variety of cafes, restaurants, and shops are neatly lined up offering a relaxing hangout after work or on weekends. Its wide 7-kilometer pedestrian walkway is perfect for jogging and biking. Bars and clubs can also be found along this strip.
Further down the canal is the Dubai Marina Mall, one of the largest shopping malls in the city. It features over a hundred retail outlets, a supermarket, a cinema, and an entertainment area of kids. This seaside mall is the perfect shopping destination for visitors and residents in the area.
One of the spectacular sights that you will see along Dubai Marina is the “tallest residential block in the world.” This area has high-rise buildings that include the world’s super-tall skyscrapers up to 400 feet tall, like the Princess Tower, the world’s tallest residential building. The Jumeirah Beach Residence is also quite a lovely sight with its group of tall residential buildings with identical architecture facing the Persian Gulf.
The sights and sounds of Dubai Marina make a dhow cruise dinner in this New Dubai district a must-try. There is simply nothing as spectacular as seeing the harmonious marriage between old and new with the traditional dhow cruise amidst this modern haven.
