Wonderful walk in Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood - top 10 things to do in Dubai
Oct 2021
What a wonderful historical place! We found this neighbourhood while taking a random walk. So surprised, that this is not included in the Top 10 things to do in Dubai. Such a contrast to the new and shiny Dubai. Area presents time before the seven emarates - marina for fishermans and perl divers. Stunning walk along the old streets, between old, well preserved buildings which accomodate shops, museums, etc. Wondeful opportunity to walk in the shade. You can shop traditional Arabic gifts and dine or just breathe in the history. We also found Starbucks well hidden behind old walls. We took a walk in mid October and streets were very, very quiet.

Coffe Museum & Dagger Museum
Sep 2021
The Coffee Museum is a very nice small museum and deals with everything relating to Coffee. They have a lot small and big items for coffee making, roasting, etc. Many interesting photos and coffee sacks from all over the world. We really enjoyed the coffee which we got from the lady from Ethiopia.

The dagger museum is situated directly next to the coffee museum. Very nice pieces were on display. It was interesting to see all the displays. Worthwhile a visit.

Nice “old” town
May 2021
Did not really super impress, though. Too nicely restored, almost artificial. Lots of tourists. But ok...

Nicely restored walking area
Mar 2021
Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood is a beautifully restored area of old Dubai. During Covid, this area was much quieter and less crowded than the souks on the other side of Dubai creek. Great photo opportunities around every corner. The courtyards and towers are so picturesque. We felt very safe. The area was smaller than I expected, but you can easily prolong your visit by walking through the adjacent historical districts or open air shopping malls along the creek. Our favorite experience here was the cultural luncheon at the center for cultural understanding, don't miss it.

Nice place to see With Mohamed ( Aladdin Tour).
Mar 2021 • Friends
It is one of the oldest areas in Dubai, built in the 1890 approximately, there are a lot of museums which I have visited with our guide during the tour ( Aladdin Tour) with Mohamed. It was a bit funny to have a fence around the camel area and we weren't allowed near because we are not special group as per the management there !!!

It was nice to see the old part of town, away from the modern glitz
Dec 2020
The Dubai Museum was closed when we got there, so instead we just wandered around the old neighborhood, trying to get a feel of what once was in this now-ultra-modern city.

Take a Grasp of the Past at the Oldest Place in Dubai (also known as Al Bastakiya)
Mar 2020
Turn back the hands of time and get the real feel of how the Dubai was during the olden times in Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood or also known as Al Bastakiya. Visited there before lockdowns were enforced but I am sure that it is still safe to visit there due to wide open spaces. Enjoy!

The old Dubai, as it is
Dec 2019
The Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood is a representative of the way live was in Dubai. WIth the traditional homes, narrow lanes, the wind tunnels visible everywhere, it's a good place to soak in the history and traditions of the Emirates.

It's easy to get lost among the labyrinth of lanes here, but there are gems all along the way. From some restored cafes and restaurants offering traditional Emirati dishes to art galleries, small museums and mosques, there is plenty to take in. One can take a walking tour in the cooler months; it's not advisable to be here during the hot season.
