    Pure magic to have this parade of beauty and color in the midst of the dessert!
    Best in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the heat.

    Global Village always has something new to offer. I love my visit there all the time. There are so many varieties of things to see, experience, eat. The lighting is also good. Lots of activities to do.

    Absolutely recommend! Very chilled out and multiple choices of restaurants and cafes. The beach is stunning and the walk is lovely. I always go there when in Dubai.

    It's actually a great way to get to the Deira souk avoiding all the traffic by road. Also an experience which is safe and economical.

    If the weather is good; you get a fun and breezy ride.

    Visited friends in Dubai who took us around the Marina one afternoon. Lovely experience to see the boats, shops and eating places. So relaxing. Do it if you get the chance.

    This is a very good beach in Dubai to spend a day with family . It is relatively less crowded compared to some of the other public beaches, there are several kite surfers and people just relaxing. It also has a public library which is great for spending some quality time.

    We prefer this mall above Dubai mall as it is less crowded and more easily to park your car. We were here in june 2022 and we did notice it is low season but the mall was very quiet, even on weekends.

    We visited the Imagine show twice and that always stays wonderful, but we were missing the lasershow onto the IC Hotel, as they would use to do. Also all the market stalls were closed and that was a pitty.

    Did notice that not all shops have survived the pandemic as the large sportstore was missing in the corner next to Centerpoint as well as the Old Navy store was missing in the mall.

    Hope they will get the activities running here again next time we come around, as it needs a good vibe to attract more people.

    Very nice and a great experience to meet Liam the sloth. Who knew sloths like sweet potato! The walk through experience is really good and the Hyacinth Macawas and Toucans are stunning. Expensive but worth the visit.

    That's one mall in Dubai with technically no floors. It's one massive spread of stores and outlets divided into beautiful country courts.

    We visited Jumeirah beach for maybe an hour, we could see the Burj Al Arab in the distance. It wasn't too busy when we went, there was sooo many shells in the sand and when the wave goes back & forth you could see lots & lots of different shells. I love shell collecting so was delighted with the range of shells. Had a nice long walk along the sand.
