Dubai & Abu Dhabi - Jumeirah (Chapter)
This is the Jumeirah chapter from Lonely Planet’s Dubai & Abu Dhabi guidebook.
Before there was the Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah was the place where everybody went to realise their Dubai dreams. It’s the emirate’s answer to Bondi or Malibu, with excellent public beaches, boutique shopping and copious spas and health clubs.
