 Travex Tips
  • The Museum parking area and nearby public parking areas are available (relatively few)
  • Do not self drive to museums and heritage sites as they are located in crowded old city areas and parking is a scarcity there; you are rather advised to use public transport.
  • Wear easy to slip in and out footwear as many places would need you to remove your footwear.

Dubai is a city, filled with amazing tourist destinations and spots. One of these amazing destinations is the luxurious Jumeirah Beach Residence located against the great Arabian Sea in Dubai Marina. Jumeirah Beach Residence or JBR is a waterfront community that stretches over 1.7 kilometers and houses over 6,917 apartments from 900sq feet studios to 5,500sq feet penthouses. With around 40 towers, residential and hotels, JBR is one of the most ostentatious places to stay in; permanent or temporary. Amwaj Rotana, Dubai Marriot Harbour Hotel & Suites, Ramada Plaza , The Ritz Carlton, Sheraton Dubai and Hilton Dubai

The Walk are just some of the hotels available for you to spend your stay whilst in Dubai. But hotels aren’t the only thing that JBR has to offer. It also accommodates the wondrous ‘The Walk’. It’s a 1.7 kilometer strip at the ground and plaza level of the complex. Started back in 2008, it currently has around and above 330 occupants covering a wide range of services and venues from a number of world-renowned brands to many franchised and local venues, strewn across the stretch including restaurants, clothing stores, boutiques, department stores, cafes and gyms among many others. The Walk is also exquisitely built to ensure you enjoy your stroll. Influenced by the west, the roads, the sidewalks and the plant life ooze out a completely different atmosphere when compared to the rest of the city. And along with these stationary sights you are also greeted to what is now a ritual of expensive, classic, four wheeler or two or even three wheeler automobiles passing by along the stretch.

When ‘The Walk’ was first unveiled, it had a waterfront look with a beach stretching from one end to the other. But that wasn’t enough for the brilliant visionaries of Dubai. It was later completely overhauled to accommodate The Beach, consisting of four distinct plazas that occupy the bulk of the beach between Hilton and Sheraton Hotels. This brand new complex has levels of underground parking for convenience along with seventy retails and food & beverage outlets together with entertainment facilities. It also has an underground movie theater; Reel Cinemas.

You’d think that it would end there, but there’s more. Bluewaters Island is a man-made island that is being constructed opposite JBR and is said to comprise of hotels, apartments, villas, dining and entertainment facilities along with The Dubai Eye, a 210m tall Ferris Wheel, which is stated to be the tallest in the world when completed. The Island will be linked by a highway, pedestrian bridge, cable car and a monorail system. Tourism and Dubai go better together than bread and butter. There, I said it.
