Ranked 21 of 79 sightseeing in Dubai

Al Fahidi fort was built in 1799 and is the oldest structure in Dubai. It is a welcome change from the shiny lights and glass architecture you will find all over Dubai.

The fort also houses the Dubai museum, which offers a window into the history of Dubai, and narrates an exquisite story of how the city grew from a village for nomads into a gloabl financial and cultural powerhouse.
