The Visit 4: Jumeirah Beach and Burj Al Arab

Another important Dubai landmark we visited to tour my grandmother is the JUMEIRAH BEACH with the majestic BURJ AL ARAB as backdrop.

Burj Al Arab (Arabic: برج العرب‎,Tower of the Arabs) is a luxury hotel located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. At 321 m (1,053 ft), it is the fourth tallest hotel in the world; however, 39% of its total height is made up of non-occupiable space.

Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m (920 ft) from Jumeirah beach and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. The shape of the structure is designed to mimic the sail of a ship. Sometimes referred to as “the world’s only 7-Star hotel”, its star rating is disputed.

The beachfront area where Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Hotel are located was previously called Chicago Beach.The hotel is located on an island of reclaimed land 280 meters offshore of the beach of the former Chicago Beach Hotel.The locale’s name had its origins in the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company which at one time welded giant floating oil storage tankers on the site.The old name persisted after the old Hotel was demolished in 1997. Dubai Chicago Beach Hotel remained as the Public Project Name for the construction phase of Burj Al Arab Hotel until Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced the new name.

We recently visited GITEX 2013 held at the Dubai World Trade Center. GITEX (Gulf Information Technology Exhibition) is  the biggest electronics and IT show in the Middle East. It is an annual consumer computer and electronics trade show, exhibition and conference which takes place in Dubai.

We were not able to buy much at the exhibition, but we were rewarded by this great view outside on our way home. The pointed building between the first and second tall building is the BURJ KHALIFA – the tallest building in the world.

14 April 2012. Jumeirah Beach. Dubai.

It’s a fine day at the beach.

A nice sunny day to play under the sun!

The sand is perfect for making sand castles 🙂

… and playing balloon airplanes!

It’s also a perfect moment for bonding with Dad…

… and Mom

With my two dearest subjects of my life.

 Mom and Dad. My family 🙂

Happy moments to treasure…

Weaving  memories together.

************************************

Jumeirah Beach in Dubai was my third beach visit.

The first beach I visited was Corniche Beach in Abu Dhabi. You can find that story HERE.

My second beach visit was in Boracay Island in the Philippines. The story of my adventure there is HERE.
