Historical part of Dubai – Al Fahidi
The most authentic part of Dubai is the old city. A walk here will not take much time, but it will remind you of the fairy tale about Aladdin.

Search Al Fahidi Historical District on the map and mark locations:
  • Basta Art Cafe. All decorated with flowers
  • ️Wall of the Old Dubai
  • Art Gallery XVA
  • Square near the Coins museum
  • Museum of coffee
And be sure to go to Starbucks! It was adapted to the old city and you definitely won’t find it anywhere else.

After that, you can cross the river in a historic small boat for 2 AED to the other side and get to the spice or gold market. There is so much gold here that they even sell clothes, crowns and glasses from it.
