Dubai is one of the most famous cities in the world. In fact, it is the famous city because most people want to visit the city one time to admire rich of the country such as high building, supercar and so on. However, the post will introduce you knew a way to explore the wonderful country besides the rich of Dubai. The long time before Palm Island appeared on the map and the Dubai Marina was filled with yachts, the Dubai Creek fused the two ancient Deira and Bur Dubai areas. In order to avoid the overhaul, the area still retains the living space of ancient Dubai. Leaving the shining glass towers to the mud and coral houses with the wind tower, tourists can take the train to Al Fahidi in Bur Dubai, to avoid the blockade.
You can choose Dubai museum for the first starting. It is a building located between the walls of the fort of Al Fahidi which was built in the late 1700s. The museum is a fascinating sight by wax figures, live screens for visitors to learn about Dubai history and six other “brothers” forming the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 1971. After the museum is the Grand Mosque, but it only opens to Muslims. Next to the mosque is the Hindi Lane which is home to many Hindu and Sikh temples, as well as countless shops selling wreaths, jeweler and other utensils used for worship.
When leaving the street, you will see the big market of Bur Dubai which have lists of the shop filled with aroma. It is difficult to see indigenous peoples living around this area, and instead, you will come across a mixture of different nationalities that have been influenced and contributed to forming the culture of the emirate for many years. Furthermore, almost most sellers are South Asian but they have sufficient English and Arabic capital to trade and offer good prices to guests. Moreover, stalls at the market sell everything from rugs, designer outfits to countless fragrances and ceramics. Pakistani and Indian snacks like pakora, pies are both popular with locals and tourists. They are sold in all food outlets, often with fruit juice or caramel (Indian tea). Therefore, after walking and shopping around the market, tourists can visit Creekside coffee to find the ideal place to enjoy wonderful teas in there.
Moreover, you can visit the one of the oldest houses of Dubai- Bayt Al Wakeel which is built in 1935 nearby the coffee shop. Previously the house was the shipping office, now it is a restaurant serving Arabic food. While the cuisine has not changed, the corner of the breakwater is transformed into a dining area. After a long day exploring the city, tourists can finish the day by eating the traditional cake of Dubai-Shawarma at Ashwaq for dinner.
If you are a non-connoisseur, fear of traveling, you can go to Sheikh Mohammed Cultural Center. The staff here will take you on a guided tour of the area and make a traditional breakfast for you to enjoy. Unlike the busy and noisy market, this area is very quiet and you do not feel disturbed when walking through the alleys. Built in the mid-1800s, Al Fahidi is one of Dubai’s oldest legends, where you find images of early life in the emirate. Furthermore, you will have a chance to admire traditional homes made of coral, pebbles, and mud always come with wind towers. The tower will absorb hot air outside and cool it down.
Today, the Al Fahidi area becomes an art complex with many houses transformed into cafes and galleries. This is also the venue for the annual Sikka Art Fair in March. We find our way out of the labyrinth of cafes, art galleries, and studios. All are very welcoming to visitors though they do not shop, so you can stroll wandering without needing to buy anything.
