Home to impressive buildings such as the Dubai Creek Tower and the Burj Khalifa, there's really no other place in the world quite like Dubai. With this in mind, let's take a look at 5 of the best locations to buy property in Dubai in 2022.

1. Palm Jumeirah

A hit among investors, Palm Jumeirah is one of the most reliable places to invest in Dubai. Thanks to its upscale location and exciting projects (Palm Beach Residence and Raffles), it's certainly a great area to consider. Prices for apartments have remained steady here too, with 1-bedroom apartments attracting AED 2.14m and 2-bedroom apartments attracting 2.58m. However, Palm Jumeirah is also popular with buyers looking for villas, with 3-bedroom villas attracting AED 6.2m.

2. Downtown Dubai

Home to the Dubai Mall, Burg Khalifa and Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Downtown Dubai is known for its high rise apartments.
