Hello all,
I'm a banker in Dubai, on an assignment for a few months, but thinking about staying longer; 2-3 years. Family will stay back in Holland.
I currently stay in a high rise hotel near my office in DIFC. Very practical, but impossible to feel at home in this area. Anybody has a suggestion for a neighborhood that is both comfortable and practical, meaning not too far from work, but smaller scale, a bit less impersonal, some trees would be nice...?
Thanks!!

You could try to look in Jumeirah 1, or next to it, Al Baada which is very popular now (Mostly villa's, or low rise apartments like Wasl Vita that is advertised now). There are also some very nice properties in DIFC itself, like Index tower. I have family staying there (from Holland too), and they love it.

Greens.

20 minutes drive from DIFC. Right on Sheikh Zayed so handy for everywhere.

Probably more trees per capita than anywhere else in Dubai.

Choice of low-rise apartments or the fancier towers alongside the golf course.

It was recently ranked as the most popular community in Dubai and it's primarily because it does feel like a neighbourhood rather than just a collection of dusty towers.
