The Jumeirah area in Dubai is a common residential area for expatriates. It is also popular among tourist. I personally was fascinated by the beachfront area. The water was beautiful and the beach surroundings were very clean and pristine.
The beach is unlike any other with the backdrop of a very thriving metropolis and structures such as the Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
It allows for spectacular views of the Burj Al Arab.
On my next trip to Dubai I would love to spend more time at the beachfront area and observe the beautiful backdrop.
