The Palm Jumierah and Business Bay/Downtown areas are typically the most expensive. Dubai Marina has a range of properties that can be very expensive to more affordable options depending on the views and the building quality. Jumierah Lakes Towers tend to be lower priced and good value due to the current lack (due to construction) of retail options within walking distance. Emirates Hills also provides slightly lower priced options which is still a 5-10 min taxi ride to the major attractions.
