Where do most people prefer to stay in Dubai between Downtown or Beach area?
It depends on what you intend to do in Dubai. There is no specific “beach” area in Dubai anyway – there are beachfront properties stretching all the way from Deira to Marina. Most “Western” tourists choose to stay on the Southern side of the creek, either on the properties along Sheikh Zayed Road (including the putative “downtown” area near Dubai Mall), or further south near Marina / JBR / Palm.
Do you have a preferred chain, Chris?
