SKYSCRAPERS AND YACHTS IN DUBAI MARINA

Dubai Marina Skyline

On my last day in Dubai for now we strolled around the Dubai Marina promenade (the exact same one i mentioned in the  beach workout post :)) and had dinner there. It’s among the newest areas in Dubai – there’s modern skyscrapers aplenty no matter where you look. My favorite on is the Cayan Tower, on the far left in the picture below. The shape is so beautiful! I’d love to see what it looks like on the inside. We also had another try at outfit pictures, see them below!

Dubai Marina Dhow

Dubai Marina perfect for people watching, since along the promenade it’s easy to find an unoccupied bench, a café or a restaurant where to rest your legs. You’ll see crazy expensive yachts and traditional dhows (larger wooden boats) as well as abras, the small water taxis that take you across the Marina for a few dirhams. There are also water bus stations, if that’s your choice of public transportation. I’ve been wanting to go on a boat sightseeing but haven’t had the chance yet. Definitely on my to do-list!

Getting to Dubai Marina is easy by public transport (Metro, MRed line, a short walk from Jumeirah Lakes Towers station. Tram, loop JBR / Dubai Marina) and parking spots are easy to find at the Dubai Marina Walk or Marina Mall parking.

The Dubai Marina Mall is right on the promenade – point proven that you’re never far from great shopping in Dubai. We skipped the mall this time even though we were yet again tempted by Five Guys burgers… We ended up having dinner at Chandelier (the umbrellas in the picture above, the northern part of the promenade), but there is no photo evidence because it got dark and we were too hungry. It was nice – a little bit on the pricey side for a casual dinner, but the food was good and our waiter was excellent, so we were happy.

This is what you’ll see everywhere in Dubai. Construction, construction, construction! Cranes in every direction and a constant hum of sounds from the sites.

Here’s a second attempt at outfit pictures – slightly better than the last time even though the spot I picked was a little dark. We’ll get it right eventually. 😉 This outfit is a combination of my favorite things and I loved it! A simple and casual dinner outfit.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Päätimme viettää tällä erää viimeisen Dubai-iltani kävelemällä Dubai Marinan ympäri, sillä kokonainen kierros oli vielä tekemättä. Dubai Marina on Dubain uusimpia alueita, ja huippumoderneja pilvenpiirtäjiä on vieri vieressä sen ympärillä. Nimensä mukaisesti kyseessä on ennen kaikkea venesatama, ja sitä reunustava rantapromenadi (josta kirjoitin loistavana lenkkipaikkana tässä postauksessa) on oiva paikka seurata ihmisvilinää, syödä tai käydä kahvilla ja shoppailla. Dubai Marina Mall on promenadin varrella. Kyseessä on Dubain mittakaavalla pienempi ostoskeskus, noin Jumbon kokoinen. 🙂

Dubai Marinaan on helppo tulla metrolla (MRed, Jumeirah Lakes Towers) tai raitiovaunulla (JBR / Dubai Marina Loop). Parkkipaikka on helppo löytää Marina Walkin tai Marina Mallin parkkihalleista. Jos olet liikkeellä autolla ja haluat käydä myös JBR:n rantakadulla the Walkilla, ei kannata ilta-aikaan missään nimessä tulla JBR:n puolelle autolla varsinkaan viikonloppuisin – löydät itsesi satavarmasti ruuhkasta. Me olemme kerran jos toisenkin istuneet  ruuhkassa perjantai-iltana JBR:n puolella yli tunnin, muutaman kilometrin matkalla. Jätä siis auto mieluummin Marinan puolelle, ja kävele tai ota raitiovaunu JBR:lle.

Blogin historian toiset asukuvatkin saimme otettua! Tällä kertaa jopa hieman edellistä paremmat, vaikka paikka olikin korkeiden talojen varjossa. Tämä asu on yhdistelmä lempiasioitani – tällä reissulla löydetty paita, suosikkihameeni ja rakkaimpia asusteitani. Täydellisen mukava rentoa illallista varten.

Ihanaa viikonloppua!
