[Dubai] The Marina!

I might be a bit biased because we stayed at our good friends’ apartment, but the Marina is an awesome place to base yourself whilst in Dubai! It’s a primarily residential area where a lot of expats live, and there is a nice beach (creatively named The Beach) where you can enjoy… um… being on a beach. Oh and of course some eateries and stuff.

When you think of high rise apartments in a patch of sand by the water that is Dubai, I feel that the Marina encapsulates all of that. Yes the canals are man-made and everything, but most things that are extraordinary about Dubai are these awesome things someone has imagined and made a reality. And the canals are so pretty!
