Jumeirah Dubai

Jumeirah is a residential area, and one of the most exclusive parts of Dubai, located on the coast of Dubai which has both expensive properties as well as more modest houses with different architectural styles.

Fishermen, pearl divers and traders were the first Arabs living here, but after 1960 Jumeirah became the principal area for western expatriate residences and familiar to many tourists visiting Dubai.

There has been a great deal of hotel and leisure construction along Jumeirah Beach including the world famous Burj Al Arab hotel, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and the Jumeirah Beach Club.

Jumeirah has also a famous mosque, the Jumeirah Mosque, which is open to non-Muslims for special tours to give insights into Islam and the recently opened Jumeirah City which consists of an architecturally interesting shopping mall, two luxurious five-star hotels, and a few residential areas.
