It is a human tendency (more Desi possibly) to use landmarks as directions. We don’t usually use street names or numbers. That would be weird, at least to us. “Yaar, Haji Ali ki lane mein aaja” sounds much more clearer than “Yaar, D88 – 2B Street par aaja“.
But how often have we visited these landmarks that we use for giving directions? Here’s our list of 7 such places, that you may have never or hardly visited but use them in your day to day life.
1. Sana Signal
2. National Paints (Although this falls in Sharjah)
3. Al-Ain Centre/Computer Plaza
4. Al Mulla Plaza
5. York Hotel
6. Union Flag
7. Ansar Gallery
There are many other such places in Dubai. Do you know of any? Let us know in the comments.
