"The best part about living in Dubai Marina for me is that it's just a five-minute walk from my workplace. I have a 10-month-old son and he loves the evening fountain shows at the Marina Walk. It has become a routine to take him out for a walk in the evening. It feels very safe to let him play on his own since the area is very clean and well maintained. This area is full of positive vibes and the best part is it's well connected through public transport. All in all, a great location to make your home.?"
