The last day in my dream city. We had a well planned schedule for the day. It was probably a City Tour day in a luxurious bus. The first destination for the day was "Dubai Museum" situated in the old Dubai. The museum had the information about how Dubai became the most richest city in the world with its trade and import/exports business and the discovery of oil. The livelihood of people hundreds of years ago was simple in the land having just sand and water. Dubai museum is considered to be the oldest building, yet remains beautiful and is situated in the middle of the market in the mainland.
Dubai Museum and Al Fahidi Fort: Dubai fort and museum is situated in the near the creek area.Entrance: 3DhTimings: From Saturday to Thursday, from 8:30 AM to 8:30 PM, and Fridays, from 2:30 PM to 8:30 PM.The place offers insight into the rich cultural heritage of Dubai. There are ancient items like pottery, weapons etc. The place is a must visit in Dubai.
Wafi Mall : This is an Egyptian themed mall, which is in shape of a pyramid. Other than shopping for international brand, one can visit the Khan Murjan Souk within the mall, which houses the items from around the Arab world.
The Dubai Museum is the oldest structure of the city and beautifully documents the history of the emirate. A great introduction to the city and the story behind it.
So aided by the map, I decided to delve into the history next and took a cab to the Dubai Museum, Thankfully it wasn’t a traditional museum with weapons and shells in glass boxes but they had actually tried to recreate history with life –sized people and shown the occupation and culture with moving figures.
A town on the outskirts of the main city of Dubai, Bur Dubai is the place that builds up your excitement for the safari. All the cars about to go on the ride stop at various stations in Bur Dubai where they prep up the cars, check tyre pressure, and let you shop for some authentic Arabian merchandise.
Its also known as Old Dubai. Its where the markets are to buy gold, spices, dry fruits. Also there is a shop known as "Ratans" in Meena Bazaar in Old Dubai from where you can buy the best perfumes at the cheapest price available.
