Business Bay is one of the world's coolest neighbourhoods
The list was collated by Lonely Planet writers from around the globe, asking them to share their must-see neighbourhoods. Business Bay was selected as part of the list by Lara Brunt, an Australian travel and lifestyle journalist currently based in Dubai.
Central to pretty much everything worth doing in the Emirate, Business Bay has seen itself transform over the years from a simple hub for many international businesses (hence the name) into a more generally appealing living destination adorned with an idyllic waterfront canal.
Headed by the Dubai Properties Group, we can expect to see a lot more growth in this district over the upcoming years. Will it ever be cool enough to beat Dubai's heat though? That's another question entirely.
