Dubai Marina retained its spot at number 1, with a 10% moving-in rate and a 15% moving-out rate. JLT placed second with a 4% moving-in rate and an 8% moving-out rate – that means twice as many people are leaving JLT than moving into it! Newcomer, Dubailand, made the list at number 4 after Downtown Dubai, with a whopping 7% move-in rate and a mere 3% move-out rate.

    Hi Asif,

    This infographic was based off ratings left by residents on, and Green Community did not have many reviews at the time. If we could, we would love to be able to include all communities in Dubai!
