Its narrow walking streets, sand-colored houses topped with wind towers are breathtaking! See this beautiful area and get a feeling of what life was like years ago.
Discover the Coffee Museum, your host will teach you all about traditional Arabian coffee and how to make it from your home.
Next stop: the Dubai Museum, where you will find out more about the time when Dubai wasn’t driven by its oil fields. Hear more about the city’s old economy and how life was before oil was discovered.
It’s time to see Khor Dubai and Abra ride to admire Deira’s high-rises from the water. After that, your host will take you to Dubai's favorite gold, spice, and textile souk.
