The Jumeirah district is located west of Dubai Creek and southwest of Bur Dubai, directly on the Persian Gulf. Jumeirah is one of the most modern parts of the city and is also considered one of the most expensive residential areas of Dubai. In the past, fishermen, craftsmen and merchants were originally settled there. The two boulevards Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Khail Road run through the Jumeirah district. They are adorned with numerous modern high-rise buildings.
