The Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) is enviably positioned between new and old Dubai. On one side, you can find the city's glittering new skyline of hotels, freehold properties, business districts, shopping malls and entertainment resorts. On the other side is the more traditional part of Dubai with its souqs, landscaped parks and vibrant retail and residential districts. Dubai's historic creek, wildlife bird sanctuary, zoo, museum, heritage sites; and famed beaches, championship golf courses, and marinas are also in the vicinity. There is an added advantage of the Dubai International Airport being a mere 15 minutes away and the new Jebel Ali International Airport, which will be the largest in the world when it opens, will be just 30 minutes away.
