Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) is one of the prime localities in Dubai having a variety of residential blocks, hotels and restaurants. The ‘JBR Walk’ which runs across the stretch of the Jumeirah Beach has shopping and eating hotspots on one side and tourists sun – bathing on the other.
And as is the case with almost anything in Dubai, there was a lot of construction activity ongoing at the place when I went in January earlier this year.
The Dubai Marina has some of the tallest buildings on the planet including the Princess Tower, Infinity Tower, Ocean Heights, Marina Pinnacle, Sulafa Tower among others. These skyscrapers and more surround a stretch of water for about 3 km.
Along with being a nice place to walk and relax, the Marina also has a plethora of restaurants at every nook and corner.
If you are looking for some time to relax, walk or have a nice meal, both these places are a must see.
Both JBR and Dubai Marina are accessible by tram.
If you are looking to connect to the Dubai Metro, go to the Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT) which is the next tram station from JBR or Dubai Marina.
