Last week, Lonely Planet revealed its list of the world's "top 10 coolest neighborhood to visit," and a Dubai district is one of them.
The list was put together by Lonely Planet writers from around the world and Dubai's Business Bay "was selected as part of the list by Lara Brunt, an Australian travel and lifestyle journalist currently based in Dubai."
The city's vibrant Business Bay was listed alongside a few of the world's most important neighborhoods and they include:
Florence's Borgo San Frediano, Seoul's Seongsu-dong, Lisbon's The Triangle, Copenhagen's Vesterbro, Kuala Lumpur's Damansara Heights, New York City's Sunset Park, Rio De Janeiro's Botafogo, Seattle's Frelard and London's Tooting.
A closer look at Dubai's Business Bay
A few years back, Dubai's Business Bay was hit hard by the global financial crisis.
However, in 2014, the Bay seemed to be making a comeback "as a residential-led community."
Today, with so many future plans for it, the area is as vibrant as ever.
The Bay is "bordered by glitzy Downtown Dubai to the north and intersected by Dubai Canal, there’s a 12km-long promenade for strolling, while ferries cruise south to Dubai Marina and north to the Al Fahidi Historic District," Lonely Planet wrote.
Future plans for the now thriving district include parks, playgrounds, marinas, hotels, cafés, and boutiques.
