Sightseeing in Jumeirah - what to see. Complete travel guide

Jumeirah archipelago, which is located in Dubai region, consists of three islands – the Palm Jebel Ali, the Palm Jumeirah and the Palm Deira. These are artificial islands, the building of which started in 2001. The building process continues even nowadays. The name of the archipelago is defined by its unusual shape that resembles a palm tree. The total square of all three islands estimates 52 kilometers. Here are planned to be built around 100 hotels and the coastal line will be occupied by villas and residences, restaurants and entertainment parks, trading centers and sports facilities.
The archipelago is shaped like a palm, branches of which are 5x5 kilometers large. The length of the coastal line estimates 78 kilometers. Port Rashid is considered the beginning of Jumeirah region. This is also a home to hotels of extra class. Until 1960 this region was mostly inhabited by local fishermen and traders. Then Europeans, who came to Dubai to find jobs, started occupying the coast. The true building boom starts in Dubai in 1995, when Jumeirah Beach becomes a marine resort of the international level, offering exclusive rest and residences of extra class.
«7-star» hotel Burj Al Arab is considered the most expensive one in the world. We should also mention Royal Mirage and Madinat Jumeirah hotels. A beautiful boulevard called “Golden Mile” is built on the Palm Jumeirah. It is a home to multiple restaurants, shops and residences. The building of the monorail road that starts near Atlantis Bay hotel and ends in Gateway Towers Stations ended in 2009. A visit to Wild Wadi Water Park, which occupies the area of 5 hectares, will become one of the most fascinating entertainments as you will find there over twenty magnificent attractions, swimming pools, and cafes.
