Welcome to Jumeirah

The biggest change to reshaping Jumeirah is the Dubai Canal, which links Dubai Creek with the Gulf. New construction along both banks and around the canal's mouth, as well as actually in the water (a floating restaurant and yacht club have been proposed), promise to keep things dynamic in the area for many years to come.
