What to See in Dubai

Dubai Museum and Al Fahidi Fort

Speaking about this city, we imagine ultra-modern hotels, luxury boutiques, and futuristic architecture. But Dubai has another side with rich history and centuries-old culture. To ascertain this, you should visit the Dubai Museum located in the Al Fahidi Fort. The museum exposition includes merchant vessels, dhows, shashas, and pearlers’ tools. Here you also can find a beautiful jewellery collection, ancient fabrics, and pottery.

Bastakiya Quarter

In the old days, Bastakiya Quarter was a place where wealthy merchants and pearlers lived. Today, you can see houses of the XIX-XX centuries with their famous wind towers here. By the way, Al Fahidi Fort with the Dubai Museum is also located in this quarter. In addition, there is also the Majlis Gallery here.

Sheikh Saeed al-Maktoum’s House

This house will get you acquainted with the history of the ruling Maktoum dynasty and show you all the beauty of traditional Arabiс architecture and the decoration of the rooms. In addition, you can enjoy an amazing city view from the balconies of the second floor.

Jumeirah Mosque

Jumeirah Mosque is an excellent example of Arabian religious architecture. Moreover, this is the only mosque in the country open to non-Muslims. Visiting Jumeirah Mosque, you must observe the dress code: For women — covered shoulders, legs, and head; for men — shirt or T-shirt with trousers.

The Green Planet

‘Must visit’ place if you are traveling with children. This Museum of Zoology is an impressive complex with over 3000 plants and animals. It’s a real rainforest under the roof: Here you can see birds flying overhead, an iguana wandering beneath your feet, a sloth hanging on the railing.
