This would make a luxurious home for students and young professionals alike.
Dubai Marina is a breath-taking man-made dock and one of the most desirable places to live in all of Dubai thanks to its sky-high towers and, of course, its proximity to the turquoise ocean. Home to the incredible Cayenne building, a magnificent and futuristic piece of architecture, this neighbourhood is convenient but also undeniably glamorous.

Can I afford it? €€€ (Expensive)
Like Venice, Dubai Marina is a canal district. The difference is, Dubai’s impressive canals are 100% man made. The marina isn’t yet completed, but watch this space – when it’s finished, it will probably be the largest man-made marina in the world.
What can I do here?
This fun, oceanside district has something for everyone. After all, the beach is here, and who doesn’t love the beach? After that, take a walk along the Dubai Marina Walk – a 7-kilometre walkway lined with internationally acclaimed shops and restaurants. When the sun sets, watch a blockbuster movie in an outdoor cinema.
