Cosmopolitan Bur Dubai
An ideal blend of modern and Arabic architecture, Bur Dubai is a fantastic holiday destination in the UAE. Now a popular part of Dubai, you will never know from walking around that Bur Dubai used to be a quiet sandy stretch of land back in the day. Bur Dubai, a cosmopolitan district of Dubai, places you beside the best restaurants and shopping malls in the city. The district is situated on the western edge of Jumeirah and Dubai Creek, and offers incredible views of the entire area of Dubai, so keep your camera handy!
Staying in this resort is a pleasure, with the streets free from intense congestion and enticing attractions just a stone's throw from your hotel. Pretty much everything you could want is on your doorstep during holidays to Bur Dubai.
The main reason for booking Bur Dubai holidays is to be closer to the heart of the city as opposed to the beach. Shopaholics are going to fall head over heels in love with the Mall of the Emirates. This is a shopping mall that pretty much has everything, including an indoor ski slope with real snow – don't forget about the 560 different brands stocked in the mall.
