Bastakia Quarter


14.9/5(4 Ratings)
Ranked 31 of 79 sightseeing in Dubai

For a real life history lesson, slip into the old city or the Bastakia Quarter for a look at the homes of wealthy merchants who traded in pearls and cloth. You can wander the limestone alleys for a first-hand look at life in the 19th century with enchanting Arabian architectural implements such as the wind towers.
Aside from these, you could find yourself sailing through the air over Dubai in a hot air ballon or doing an equally exciting dune safari. If this is not enough for the thrill-seeker in you then there are several water sports like jet skiing or waterboarding available to beat the heat in fun.
