If you’re holidaying in Dubai, you simply shouldn’t miss out on the historic sites that each tell a story of its own. Here are a few places to add to your travel itinerary.
If you want to experience a traditional Arab village, you must visit Madinat Jumeirah, 15 minutes from Oaks Liwa Heights. A contemporary interpretation of an Arab village together with a souq, waterways, hotels, and villas is what you’ll be able to witness here. An exceptional view awaits you in the night when the gardens are beautifully lit and the Burj Al Arab gleams in the background.
One of Dubai’s most beautiful mosques, the Jumeirah Mosque is one of the handfuls of mosques that are open to non-Muslims. After you’re done with your tour of the mosque, don’t miss out on the cappuccino with camel milk in the café within the grounds of the mosque.
The museum looks like a sandcastle from outside, but it’s actually a fort which goes by the name ‘AL Fahidi Fort’. Established in the year 1799, it’s the oldest building standing strong in Dubai. The fort was initially built to prevent the foreign invaders from entering the city. Take a break from enjoying your serviced apartments in Dubai and experience the rich heritage and culture of Dubai Museum since its inception in 1971.
This ancient monument was constructed in 1890, before being restored in 1994. It was initially a rich pearl merchant’s home. Inspired by traditional designs of Bastakiya buildings, the house is patterned with gypsum and coral.
