What people are saying:

Dubai not only has luxury and prosperity and high-rise buildings, but also the quaint tradition and quiet elegance of the old city. Highly recommend this Al-Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. Recommended index: Al Fadi is located in the Bur Dubai area on the west bank of the Dubai Creek, in the old city of Dubai, a two-minute walk from the Dubai Museum. It is the oldest historical site in Dubai and the only remaining wind tower complex on the Arabian coast. , Owning buildings date back to the early twentieth century. Witness the old days of Dubai, experience the rich cultural and artistic activities, taste the dishes and coffee of the traditional Arabic restaurant. Every corner here makes visitors can’t help but slow down and press the shutter (you can Ignoring one or two locals who used "Nihao~Miss Sister" to strike up a conversation to solicit business, they went to the gold market and found out that this place is already civilized) Detailed address: Al Fahidi St, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Transportation guide: ▶Take Bus 29 to Al Fahidi Bus Station ▶Take the Metro Green Line to Al Fahidi Metro Station ▶Take a taxi or charter a one-day tour of Dubai City ⏰ Business hours: 10:00-22:00 Tickets: Free entry to the expected time of play : One hour is enough to take photos. Counting the time spent in small shops and drinking coffee is 2-3 hours. Practical tips1⃣️This historical area also has tourists but not many. The places with few people and beautiful scenery must be the holy places. The girls buy a set of Arabian costumes and headscarves (suggest to choose a brighter color ❤) and come here for street shooting. It is really suitable. When the sun shines from the ceiling of the alley, the light and shadow are simply the photographer’s love (unfortunately my level of scum can not make a big picture) 2⃣️The Dubai Museum is only a few minutes walk away, and a ticket only costs 3 Di Ram’s Folk Museum, there are no cultural relics, it’s not bad to go in and learn about the history of Dubai~

    It was nice to see the old part of town, away from the modern glitz

    The Dubai Museum was closed when we got there, so instead we just wandered around the old neighborhood, trying to get a feel of what once was in this now-ultra-modern city.
