Welcome to Bur Dubai
Bur Dubai is also a close ride away from the futuristic side of Dubai, where the modern skyscrapers and bucket list items reside. That said, the historical and cultural side of this Emirate is a destination in and of itself, so read on to find out about what you can explore when staying in Bur Dubai.
We’ll begin with the souks since these marketplaces are must-see destinations when visiting the Middle East. In Dubai, you’ll find gold, spice and perfume souks where you can craft your own scent, shop for jewellery, and top up your spice collection. Expect to find a vibrant atmosphere filled with textiles, aromas, and trinkets to take home.
From the souks, you can hop on a traditional water taxi (abra) for just AED 1 and glide your way across the Dubai Creek. The docks are located in the heart of Bur Dubai, so you can easily spend the day in the vicinity, from a morning boat ride to an evening stroll along the promenade at sunset. You’ll be met with intriguing alleyways on the other side, filled with shops to explore and moments to capture on camera. If you’re looking for dinner plans, opt for a dhow dinner cruise!
Another destination to visit in Bur Dubai is the Bastakiya Quarter, home to a collection of cultural sights. Visitors will see Dubai’s oldest building, the Al Fahidi Fort, dating back to the 1780s. This is where the Dubai Museum awaits, which details the city’s history with the pearl diving trade. The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding is another great place to learn all about the Emiratis and the UAE’s history with Islam – plan to visit on a Monday or Wednesday at 10 am so you can enjoy a traditional Arabic breakfast!
To bring your trip full circle, be sure to visit the Dubai Frame. Not only will you be able to capture a picture of the world’s largest photo frame, but you can also make your way to the top of the frame, where galleries and exhibitions showcase the past, present and future of Dubai. Naturally, you’ll also be able to lay your eyes on panoramic views of the city before you.
There are also a host of other fascinating places to visit near Bur Dubai, including the Global Village where foods from around the world are served, the Majlis Gallery filled with art and creativity, and The Dubai Heritage Village showcasing a mix of customs and craftsmanship.
