Feel Old Dubai
If you want to know how the Arab Emirates came to be, who governs it, and why people wear such clothes, go to the Sheikh Mohammed Center for Cultural Cooperation. Located at House 26, Al Mussallah Road, Al Fahidi District, Bur Dubai, the center was opened specifically to introduce the country’s culture to its guests.
Take a sightseeing cruise on the Persian Gulf
If it is too extreme to see the sights of Dubai from the air or it hits the budget – no problem. A group cruise on a yacht, pleasure boat, motor boat or Dow’s wooden boat allows you to see everything from the water. Typically, the journey begins in the Dubai Marina area and then your day will pass to explore the high-rise architecture of Dubai.
