When you decide to relocate to a different part of the world, you will surely want to know more about the place you’re moving to. After all, moving abroad is not something that can be taken lightly.

Want to learn more about this multipurpose development in Dubai? Here are four fast facts to give you a quick peek at what Dubai Festival City can offer:


One edge that Dubai Festival City has is its location.

For one, it is a mere 10-minute drive away from the Dubai International Airport, a well-known travel hub and the world’s busiest airport in terms of international travel.

Dubai Festival City also grants you quick access to Dubai Academic City (which is just 20 minutes away), Business Bay (a 12-minute drive via Al Khail Road), and Al Garhoud (8 minutes by car via Rebat Street).

This makes Dubai Festival City an excellent residential destination for working professionals and entrepreneurs.

Take note that the Dubai Festival City is divided into three sub-communities, as follows:

  • Al Badia Residences – This area consists of villas and apartments built with both traditional and contemporary themes in mind. It is located along the Dubai Creek.
  • Al Badia Hillside Residences – Designed based on quaint hillside Mediterranean settlements, properties here are tailored to distinctive lifestyles, with no two apartments looking alike.
