Day 3 – Journey to the Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood​ 

Take a journey to the Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood to explore Old Dubai. Part of the attraction of the district, which showcases the traditional way of life in Dubai from the mid-19th century until the 1970s, is simply wandering through its narrow lanes. Here, you’ll discover creative art spaces, museums, and cafés housed in traditional L-shaped homes made from gypsum, coral, and limestone. Look up, and you can’t miss the buildings topped with distinctive wind towers. While exploring this neighborhood, you will visit the Textile Souk, full of colorful fabrics and kitsch souvenirs. Embark on a water taxi ride by Dubai Creek at Bur Dubai Abra Station. This waterway reflects Dubai’s historical roots when early settlers relied on its waters for their livelihood.

Visit the viewing platform 452 meters above sea level. Ride the building’s express elevator to the 124th floor at a speed of 10 meters per second. From there, you can enjoy a breathtaking 360-degree view of Dubai and its unique skyline. Enjoy free time at the impressive Dubai Mall afterward.
