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.
The Burj Al Arab is often referred to as “the world’s only seven star hotel” and is perhaps the most popular building depicted on souvenirs of Dubai due to the building’s shape resembling the sail of a ship.
The hotel is located on a man made artificial island that is connected to the Jumeirah Beach by a bridge.

Being the fourth largest hotel in the world, the Burj Al Arab can been seen towering over the Jumeirah neighborhood. It was pretty cool being able to view and capture if from so many different angles.
Unfortunately, my time in Dubai was touch and go so I did not have much opportunities to go inside of the many buildings and skyscrapers.
