Made up of clusters of Mediterranean style low-rise apartment blocks, Discovery Gardens is surprisingly green. Traffic bottlenecks can be a problem during rush hours, but there is plenty of parking around the buildings. There is also a Red Line Metro stop outside Ibn Battuta, but you need to take the F43 feeder bus to access it.
The neighbouring development Al Furjan is designed with families in mind.
Heading to Marsa Dubai and Al Barsha for a drink or a nice dinner isn’t much of a hassle, and the Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel is a welcome addition to the immediate area’s dining and bar scene. Ibn Battuta Mall houses a cinema and several restaurants.
Rents tend to be lower here and apartments easy to come by. The buildings only contain studios and one-bedroom apartments. It’s one of the few places where landlords will still accept quarterly rental payments as opposed to six months or a year upfront.
