Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai

Madinat Jumeirah

Madinat Jumeirah is one of the most unusual and interesting areas of Dubai. Its architecture is a modern interpretation of a traditional Arab village with a market. Cozy sandy-colored villas, water channels and palm trees convey the unique flavor of the oasis in the middle of the desert. At night, Madinat turns into an extremely romantic place thanks to the pleasant lighting.

On of the unique features of the place — 20-minute arba cruise along the winding canals that will remind you of Venice.

Souk Madinat Jumeirah

Goods at Souk Madinat Jumeirah Bazaar

The central place of Madinat is an interesting market that recreates the atmosphere of an oriental bazaar.

Inside you will find artifacts and souvenirs from all over the East and Africa — from unusual vases to ancient masks. Here you can walk through the unusual labyrinths of the bazaar and go out onto the balconies.

Watch the turtles

A special lagoon for turtles has been built on the territory of Jumeirah Al Naseem, providing them with a natural habitat. The lagoon was created as part of the Dubai Wildlife Management Program. Its activists find stranded turtles that are injured or unable to swim on their own due to abnormal growth of shells on the shell.

There are special dams on the territory of Jumeirah Al Naseem's Turtle Rehabilitation Lagoon, where visitors can watch and feed turtles. A feeding session is held every Wednesday at 11 am.

There are five five-star hotels of the highest level on the territory:

Jumeirah Malakiya Villas

Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf

Checking in at Madinat opens an access to the territory of the Burj Al Arab hotel.

Where to eat

Sunset view of Burj Al Arab from Bahri Restaurant

There are a lot of small cafes and restaurants on the territory.

In Madinat, as in the whole Dubai, hotel restaurants are open not only for guests, but also for visitors. You can book a table in the restaurants of any of the hotels on site.

We recommend the Bahri restaurant, which is located on the territory of the Jumeirah Mina A'Salam Hotel. It will be a wonderful continuation of a pleasant walk through the authentic territory of Madinat. The interior of the restaurant is made in oriental style with carpets, vintage lamps and doors in the style of oriental arches.

If the weather permits, take a table on the veranda. The view of Burj Al Arab and smoky hookahs will make your evening unforgettable.

How to get to

The most convenient way to get there is by taxi.

If you travel via public transport, you can hop on a bus to the Madinat Jumeirah at the Mall of the Emirates metro station.
