Dubai is the second largest Emirate of the UAE and one of the most dynamic cities in the world. This region was known as ‘Al Wasl’ in the past. This city has a history of more than 5000 years. In this Dubai City Heritage Tour 2020, we purely look into the Heritage and current lifestyle of people living in Dubai.
We start our tour from the Dubai Museum visit to grab the sense of the past. Then we get to see the Heritage and Diving Villages. Next, we visit the ‘Sheikh Saeed House’ and another house that is featuring Islamic Arts and Calligraphic Portraits.
Continuing our tour, we drive towards the well known Gold and Spice souk. We get to walk in the souk and interact with local shopkeepers and enrich ourselves with the lifestyle of people residing and doing business in Dubai. From the souk, we take a ride on an Abra boat (ages-old water taxi) and arrive at the historical ‘Al Bastakiya Village’ where a traditional lunch awaits us with true Arabian hospitality.
That’s not it to the Heritage Tour of Dubai City. At Al Bastakiya, we explore the historical living architecture and we meet local Emarati people who surround us and answer all our questions about Arab people, Arabian culture, and Arabic literature. After the lunch, we leave the Bastakiya Village but have already gathered unforgettable memories to cherish later on.
