Named for the country-themed areas it is divided into, International City is one of the most economical residential areas in Dubai. Separated into 10 clusters (China, England, France, Greece, Italy, Persia, Russia, Spain, Emirates and Morocco), the area is composed primarily of low-rise apartment buildings with studio, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments available for rent. Located along the Dubai-Al Al Ain Road, International City also has buses that connect to the Dubai Metro red line at Deira City Centre and Rashidiya stations. Dubai International Airport is only 15 minutes away.
Designed with a community feel in mind, International City offers residents the convenience of supermarkets, banks and laundry services in the area as well as budget restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisines. There is also a basketball court for community use as well as clinics including Aster Medical Centre and Shanghai Medical Centre. Nearby schools include Our Own High School and Sharjah American School.
