What’s your address? The city of gold has two separate sides – Downtown and Uptown, both with a unique feel and plenty of activities, restaurants, shopping and more on offer...

downtown dubai

When deciding where to stay in Dubai this summer, you need to work out whether you want to be Downtown or Uptown. Downtown Dubai is a classy inland district that’s home to all manner of exciting attractions. Its beating heart is Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, a short hop from which is The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination. It’s also where you’ll find three exquisite hotels – The Address Downtown Dubai, The Address Dubai Mall and The Palace – The Old Town. The city’s Uptown district, meanwhile, has risen up out of the desert in the last six years and is home to hyper-modern buildings. At its western border lies the beach and the Gulf – along with seaside boulevards crammed with boutique shops

Uptown dubai

and gourmet restaurants. At its eastern edge lies The Address Montgomerie Dubai, which is home to a world-class 18-hole golf course designed by a true legend of the game, Colin Montgomerie. At Uptown’s centre is Dubai Marina, a manmade harbour ringed with iconic buildings and offering a phenomenal lifestyle to its thousands of residents. It’s a self-contained community, where Uptowners can walk or cycle to work along Marina Walk, pop into The Address Dubai Marina for wonderful evening meals or lazy afternoon brunches, soak up the sun on the nearby beaches, or shop in the Marina Mall – a focus for local life. Having decided which of the city’s districts you’d prefer to base yourself in, it’s time to start planning activities for the perfect break: turn the page to find out more... The Address

It picks up four times an hour from each of the hotels, ferrying guests around in style and comfort. It’s a tremendous boon when you’ve had a serious morning’s shopping: gather up your bags, hop on and you’ll be back at your hotel in next to no time. Just ask your concierge for pick up and drop off timings, and jump aboard.

go out aNd about You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to activities, both Uptown and Downtown. Here’s our pick of the best...

eNJoy some retaiL theraPy Dubai is rightly famed for its shopping – and there’s nowhere more exciting to indulge your retail therapy habit at The Dubai Mall. It spans some 12 million square feet and boasts all manner of firstclass attractions – including an Olympic-sized ice rink and 22-screen cinema – as well as a dizzying array of restaurants and cafés. But it’s the stores that really make the mall, all 1,200 of them – 165 of which are brands’ flagship outlets. Lovers of haute couture will have a particular weakness for the mall’s label-loaded Fashion Avenue and Galeries Lafayette, a multilevel masterpiece that offers up floor after floor of fantastic designer garb to the city’s sartorially minded citizens. Other big names to watch out for are New York favourite Bloomingdales; bafflingly vast bookstore Kinokuniya (or ‘Book World’); and the inhouse Gold Souk, which plays host to dozens of jewellers. There’s plenty on offer for kids, too, including Dubai’s first and only branch of Hamley’s, which helps to fire the imaginations of children with over 100,000 toys, impromptu musical interludes and magic shows performed by permasmiling staff. Meanwhile, over in Uptown, you’ll find Dubai Marina Mall, a great modern shopping spot built around a huge, airy central atrium where local residents meet up for a coffee and a chat before hitting the stores. Once you’ve picked up some new sports gear, a pretty dress or two, a watch and perhaps even some jewellery, it’s time for you to wander across to The Address Dubai Marina, which is directly linked to the mall, for a slap-up lunch at Mazina. Indulge in what’s served up at the great Rotisserie grill. 10

taKe iN the sights You cannot leave Dubai before visiting Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, an awesome attraction at The Dubai Mall. Here you can peer through the world’s largest viewing panel at over 33,000 aquatic creatures – everything from sand tiger sharks to eagle-like stingrays and poker-faced groupers – or take a stroll through the fish-filled, water-ringed tunnel, where you just might see divers feeding the fish. Just upstairs on Level 2 is the amazing Underwater Zoo. There are three environments to explore in this extraordinary attraction, the first of which is the ‘Rainforest’ where you experience freshwater exhibits and see catfish, otters, piranhas and water rats. Then there’s the ‘Rocky Shore’, where you can meet a colony of Humboldt


most importantly – have a huge amount of fun. It’s the most imaginative theme park for children we’ve ever heard of. Older kids, teens and young-at-heart adults, meanwhile, should head for SEGA Republic, a 76,000-square-foot theme park at The Dubai Mall. It’s got a section specially for younger kids but otherwise it’s open to all – so whether you’re 15 or 50 you can get involved with the latest arcade games, plus motion-simulator rides, a spin coaster and sports experiences galore. seGA republic

penguins, a giant octupus, giant spider crabs and harbour seals. Finally, kids will love the ‘Living Ocean’ zone, where they can check out leafy sea dragons and moray eels. Once you’ve been amazed by the natural world, prepare to have your breath taken away by the man-made one by visiting At the Top at Burj Khalifa. Every major city has its landmarks – London its Big Ben, New York its Statue of Liberty and Paris its Eiffel Tower – but topping them all, in terms of sheer size, is the 828-metre-high Burj Khalifa. Its needle-like structure punctures the clouds and provides an awe-inspiring, postcard-perfect sight for visitors to Dubai. At the Top is an observation deck on the tower’s 124th floor – reached via a fascinating display on the construction of the tower and an ultra-speedy lift ride – which offers visitors jaw-dropping aerial views of the city.

maKe the most of the great outdoors Make your way to the Uptown area for two brilliant outdoor experiences. The first is taking a boat out from Dubai Marina Yacht Club and going sailing. The Yacht Club is right next to The Address Dubai Marina – if you’re staying at the hotel you can get the concierges to organise your sailing jaunt on your behalf. You can head out on fishing trips or simple pleasure cruises, and either hire your own vessel or go out as a passenger on a crewed boat. If you go for the pleasure cruise option, you’ll be heading out in ‘The Athena Dubai’, a 50-foot, twolevel beauty which can happily accommodate 12 for a cocktail cruise or eight for a dinner cruise. The other outstanding al fresco experience is playing 18 holes of golf at The Montgomerie Dubai.

It’s also got a great grill (see ‘European’, below). Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a place with a stunning setting for some al fresco snacks, check out the Asian-themed FAI at The Palace – The Old Town.
