Spend a rewarding day experiencing Dubai & the UAE’s history & culture starting in Al Seef district whence the city spread. Retrace the steps of fishermen & pearl divers as you wander through the Sikkas lining water’s edge. Stroll through Dubai’s oldest Bastakiya Quarter enroute to Dubai Museum located in the 1787 built Al Fahidi Fort. Watch a vibrant trade in Souk Al Kabeer before boarding an Abra across Dubai Creek. Walk through the Spice Souk with its overflowing sacks of fragrant spices and herbs brought in from India & Iran. Work up an appetite then enjoy lunch at an Emirati restaurant. Drive to Zabeel Palace for a photo-stop outside the home of Dubai’s Ruler. Stop at the 21st century Etihad Museum; be enthralled with the story of UAE’s formation told via a unique exp.-driven journey exploring the events leading to unification in 1971. Finally, see Union House where the documents of unification were signed.
