Dubai Tourist Attractions

See the Past Before the Future

Hi, Sunil here to talk about the countless Dubai tourist attractions

When it comes to visiting some of the best attractions in Dubai you can certainly expect a ton of variety.

From the rugged mountains to the fantastic sand dunes, you can choose fun, relaxation, excitement, or historic attributes.

You can visit the beaches, the modern shopping malls or head out for a tour of the ancient houses and architecture.

All of this variety gives the international city Dubai a unique personality.

You have a great mixture of a cosmopolitan country with deeply rooted traditions that extend back a hundred years.

Here are some of the best Dubai tourist attractions that give Dubai such a wonderful personality and show you some of the older cultures of Dubai before you head on to the newer version of Dubai.

Dubai City is a wonderful place to start. This is the central business district which is divided into two parts, both of which allow you to really see how the locals live. There is Deira and Bur Dubai which are connected by a tunnel and two bridges.

Each has its own city within a city with plenty of malls, office towers, schools, and parks. The Creek which runs in the center is the best way to view both parts of Dubai city which can take you from the traditional to the modern.

Bastakiya is an old district that is worth the trip for. With its narrow lanes and tall wind towers you can experience the old Dubai with almost no hints of the modern development that is taking place. This is also where you can find Al Fahidi Ford which is the largest concentration of traditional courtyard homes.

Popular among tourists looking to see the true culture, is an amazing way to spend a morning. After visiting the popular tourist attraction Jumeirah Mosque, you can head over to Sheikh Saeed’s house which is nearby to the sea.

To learn about the fishing history of Dubai, take the time to visit Bait Al Wakeel which is one of Dubai’s first office buildings. Built in 1934, it now houses a museum that shows you what life used to be like in Dubai.

Of course, to get the mixture of the old and new, it is a nice idea to visit the souks that are located right outside of this building and in nearby neighborhoods. Well known for the bargains you can’t help but pick up some gold while feasting on the amazing fish lunches and dinners. Guaranteed, you will love this food!

On the north of the creek you can visit one of the lesser known tourist attractions that are known as the Heritage and Diving village. It is a traditional village in which you can find potters and weavers displaying their artistic talents and their wares. It takes you right back in time to before modern culture met up with ancient heritage.

Finally before you head back to your lavish resort, you should stop by any of the local fishing “holes.” The Gulf is rich in marine life and since fishing was once so much a part of the economy you can actually pick up a pole and live life like the locals used to. You can catch Kingfish, Barracuda, and Hammour, along with a myriad of other types of fish. It is a wonderful way to unwind your day of visiting modern Dubai tourist attractions.
