After you are done visiting this divine place, we take you to Al Bastakiya, which shows you what the old Dubai is like. Old houses and the Al Fahidi fort, which is now converted into a museum is what await your visit.
In the evening, hop aboard on the dhow- a typical Arab boat for a dinner cruise in the serene waters of the Dubai creek. These sturdy cruises are apt for a party, a romantic dinner or for relaxation.
