You are never far from the centre of the action when you live in Downtown, with the world’s largest shopping mall and the world’s tallest building on your doorstep. There is also a plethora of restaurants along Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, the iconic Dubai Fountains and a dazzling array of five-star hotels and spas.
The Dubai Mall is a shopper’s heaven, with every imaginable brand under one roof, as well as a host of other attractions including a giant aquarium and an Olympic-sized ice rink. The neighbouring Souk Al Bahar is packed with restaurants and traditional artisanal stores, providing a contrast to the ultra modern style of the mall.
Housing in Downtown district is roughly divided into two styles - contemporary skyscrapers and the more traditional Arabian style architecture of Old Town and Old Town Island.
