This is what lonely planet says about Jumeirah:
"This beautiful stretch of coast with its namesake road running parallel to its white-sand beach boasts some of Dubai's best beach resorts. It's also Dubai's most interesting residential area... The largest villas are home to more affluent Emirati families with sheikhs' palaces occupying the prime beachside real estate. To service local residents there's an incresaing number of chic eateries and shopping malls. This area is also home to Dubai's most remarkable construction projects, including Burj Al Arab and the man-made island developments of The World and The Palm, which can be seen from space."
Fact #17: I wanna see Dubai from space.
