A new study conducted by servicemarket.com has found that the happiest residents in Dubai live in, drum roll please, Emirates Living, which is home to the Springs, Meadows, Lakes, Greens, The Views and Hills. 

The five locations scored an average rating of 4.16 out of 5, which was mainly due to the green spaces and amenities available in each of the areas. 

Emirates Living was closely followed by JLT, Jumeirah Park and Jumeirah Heights, which rated 4 out of 5 due to the quality of apartments and easy access to restaurants.

Silicon Oasis came in third place due to its spacious buildings and affordable rent

Satwa, Deira, Al Mamzar and International City were among those with the lowest ratings due to factors like traffic, proximity to schools and facilities.
