    I went there to start my vacation in style. We were on a boat cruise with the family. They offered an international buffet, the cruise was along the creek which lasted well over an hour. They had music and friendly staff. I loved the experience but you must only go during the winter.

    Had a short stay in Dubai and absoutely loved it. Luckily we got a special deal and got free entry due to our boarding pass. You get to see an old Dubai and New Dubai on different sides, it does give you a new perspetive to look at life. We will be coming back for sure.

    This is a cool blend of old style and new Dubai on the banks of Dubai Creek.

    The old style side offers lots of great photo opportunities in the maze of streets.

    There are plenty of shops, restaurants and a couple of hotels in this area, which is in a stunning part of Dubai.

    This area offers a glimpse back to historic Dubai.

    There are plenty of interesting cafes and shops to visit, together with street art and a camel and it’s baby.

    It’s pleasant to simply wander around and take it in.

    A truly fascinating place where you discover how our complex minds can be tricked.. Seeing is always not believing!
    Nested in Al Seef- The Dubai Heritage Centre this Museum is a must see for visitors. Walking through the Souk to get to the museum is also a beautiful experience

    The team at the Museum are extremely helpful and guide you through it.. taking some memorable along the way. Some exhibits will make you smile, others astonish you and some make you wonder how the mind works.

    A must visit when in Dubai ( best during the winter months to experience the charm and colours of Al Seef on foot)

    DId a morning tour of this neighborhood with a guide and it was excellent. This neighborhood gives you a taste of what life was like before all he modern Dubai you see today. The abras available to cross Dubai creek are great as well. While in the neighborhood, ensure you go to one of the souks/local markets (spices, silver, gold, jewelry, etc…).

    The museum is stunning. It’s very nicely laid out and there are people to direct you every step of the way even though it’s mostly self-guided. Clearly a lot of thought and planning went into it and it was really eye-opening and educational. I would plan for at least 3 hours to view all the pavilions. The restored historic houses were one of my favourite aspects of it although there were a lot of interactive and participatory elements as well. It’s definitely definitely worth the trip. The staff were very friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable as well, particularly in the jewellery section.

    This park is ideally located in close vicinity of residential places like, Karama, Bur Dubai, Jaffilia etc. The park has its own dedicated parking area which charges AED 10/- per entry (not hour) and you can stay as much as you want. The park has some rides for the young kids and play area for the teens. This is ideal for families or large groups who wants to enjoy the weekend and have some fun activities at the same time. Park also offer a jogging track outside its gate which is free for use.

    It's a place which is very commonly used by my family and friends to enjoy the weekend, fun games, home made food and quality time.

    As a nursery, we enjoy our field trips to Children's City as a safe, fun and very educative environment. It covers various subjects for different age groups and in different ways of learning. Technology, sensory, visuals, physical...etc.
    I highly recommend the place.

    Meena bazar in Al Fahidi feels a bit like India or Pakistan. It is not a bazar in the classical sense of the word, but rather a cluster of small shops and restaurants in a labyrint of alleys and streets. Butchers, tailors, 5 dirham hairdressers, laundry places and groceries, very many small low-budget restaurants mostly offering Indian and Paistani food.

    Beware of shopkeepers selling jewelry, traditional clothes, perfumes and spices who are experienced in dealing with ignorant tourists. Of course there are honest men among them, but bargaining without knowing real Dubai prices always ends in being overcharged or ripped of.

    A very nice park. One part is the dinosaurs park. Another part is a collection of weird rooms and another part is the glow itself with plenty of images. The parking is paid and the price little high

    It's all in one destination for Barbeque + dolphinarium + bird show + picnic + beach
    Entry fee of 5dhs is charged. You can use your NOL card too. Plan and reach early to get the right place to enjoy all of these activities. Dolphinarium, children's city and bird show can be a little pricy (additional) but its worth al least once!

    This mall includes Egyptian decor and an impressively authentic Souk downstairs.

    There is also an excellent Middle Eastern restaurant in the courtyard which is well worth a visit.
