What comes to your mind when you think of Dubai? Probably Burj Khalifa, skyscrapers, luxurious malls, super expensive hotels, vast desert and camels? However this city is way beyond those standard 3N/4D itineraries that people usually follow.
Dubai, like any other city, is full of great history and culture. Every corner of this city reflects hopes, dreams, aspirations and belief. This new city walks together respecting each other with more of expat population than local. When my chance came to visit Dubai, I wanted to look beyond the usual pictures I've seen all across the web. That's when I searched for standard itinerary, to make sure not to follow it!
Being first time in Dubai, my trip included many hyped touristy things and yet I managed to include lesser known things that I found interesting and convenient in my time frame. This and coming few posts will be about how I explored this Arab city in my 6 days excursion.
Day 1: Old Dubai - Dhow Cruise Dinner
For me, visiting any city without knowing it's history is like watching only the climax of a movie. If you think alike, you need to make time for Old Dubai in your Dubai trip!
