7 Places in Dubai We Use As Direction Landmarks But Might Have Never Visited

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.
