Jumeirah 2 by day

Quiet in the residential areas, but has a more fast pace near popular locations. Main roads tend to be busy with traffic in the mornings and early afternoons as parents drive to work and children head to school. Open-air green spaces near the beaches attract residents, passing visitors, and outdoor workers to relax in the shades and enjoy a brief break.
