When it comes to Dubai, everyone will think of all kinds of luxury, but the bustling Dubai has another side. Today, I visited the oldest urban ruins in Dubai. Now I have been thoroughly repaired to reproduce the historical architecture of Dubai in the early 20th century.
The Arabian-style houses in the old town are made of clay and coral stone, looking at the quaint and rough... and only here can you find the original features of the desert capital.
A narrow street runs through the wind tower houses, bringing people into the corners that have been forgotten by the years, without the bustling, bustling and hustle and bustle of the city, filled with a pure and quiet atmosphere.
There is a square wind tower at the top of each house. Through the wind tower, natural wind can be introduced into the room to keep the interior cool, and people have to sigh their wisdom~
I am very interested in Dubai's old town, because most of the tourist cities have similar modern high-rise buildings and facilities, but if you want to really understand the local history, you should not miss the historical sights and museums and visit the old town. The Al Bastakiya area is an iconic area of Dubai's historic architectural style, representing the architecture, livelihoods and urban development of the early residents of Bur Dubai on the Dubai Bay.
The temperature is high on the day, there will be a burning sensation under the sun, but there will be a little coolness in the shade of the place, it is still very comfortable, it is recommended to wear some costumes with ethnic characteristics, and Long scarf, sunscreen and concave shape, photo will also be very filming
strolling the old city, Arab architecture is mainly stone structure, stone pillars, domes and Arabian patterns of fine openwork stone windows are all Arab architecture The main features. The buildings in Bastakiya mainly use white coral stones collected in the bay, which can block the hot temperature in the desert. In the era when the air conditioner has not been invented, the residents of the desert area cool down the room through the wind flowing from the wind tower. . The high-altitude mosque and the high wind towers that must be in every house give the alleys a sense of shelter and tranquility.
Take the traditional wooden raft boat Abra boating in the ancient Dubai Creek, to the east is Bella Deira, and to the west is Bur Dubai. On the banks of the Dubai Creek, the ancient Arab complex Al Fahidi is a vivid history and life imprint. The Arabian fragrance of the Spice Souk in the Spice Market is like a thousand years in the sun.
At 5:30 in the evening, we returned to the old city of Dubai, waiting for the start of the National Day celebration tonight.
Slowly, the tourists started to get more.
Local tyrants also brought their wives and children to join in the fun. It is observed that the two wives are the lowest consumption, and the top four of the four wives are also in large numbers. Its no wonder that every day, you have to eat beef and mutton every day. .
Time is almost the same, we also took a position in front of the stage, a group of white local tyrants lined up on the stage, performing the most traditional Yula dance in the Gulf region, this dance was included in the World Intangible Cultural Heritage List last year. .
They sang along with the rhythm of the drums, flipping the wooden sticks up and down to show the story of a desert tribe.
I dont understand the lyrics of singing, the artistic nature of dance is no different, but there are so many local tycoons on the stage who are dedicated to us, and its really flattering. Anyway, my spirit is highly concentrated and easy. I was brought into the sands of the desert and felt that their ancestors were still in a state of leisure without a good life without oil.
