The Dubai Marina — a western district of Dubai that was built in a manmade bay. Its hallmark is the biggest yacht marina in the whole Middle East. It’s growing day by day and can already compete with the Marina del Rey in California. One can find the Dubai Marina on the map very easy, because it’s located between the Jebel Ali port and the American University in Dubai, bordering with the Knowledge Village and Palm Jumeirah. Travel time to the international airport of Dubai is not more than 25 minutes.
The general idea of the Dubai Marina development is so challenging that this area is still under construction. However, the district has already obtained its unique shape and image with dozens of skyscrapers, while their total amount has to reach 200. Various luxurious hotels, shopping malls, office premises, boutique shops, banks, numerous stores, cafes and restaurants are located inside. This place is perfect for walking, shopping, meeting the Arabic luxury and modern life of the emirate. The development process of this area is performed in accordance with the principles of Concоrd Pacific Place — one of the most famous project in Canadian Vancouver.
It’s impossible to imagine the Dubai Marina without The Walk promenade. It makes its way along the water smooth surface, allowing visitors and guests to enjoy an amazing beauty of the bay, hundreds of snow-white yachts and picturesque unique silhouettes of various towers with their own styles and history. Areas between towers are looking like green oases bringing many positive emotions and making a sharp contrast between the modern megalopolis and natural views.
Many of the most famous skyscrapers are located right in the Dubai Marina:
1. The Princess’s tower
4. Gourmet Tower
The territory of the Dubai Marina is not so spacious, even though it includes many amazing buildings. Its total length along the bay is just 3 km, while its width is 0.5 km. Thus, any traveler can discover it on foot, getting closer to the city.

To tell the truth, the Dubai Marina is an ideal place for shopping lovers in the emirate, because it contains hundreds of shops with all necessary things: luxury goods, antique stuff, jewelry, brand clothes, shows, accessories, cosmetics and perfumes.
