Dubai is the second largest of the seven Emirates that makes up the United Arab Emirates and ranks as the country’s leading commercial center. Dubai is the place where one can embrace a wide variety of scenery in a very small area. In one single day, the tourist can experience every thing from rugged mountains and aweinspiring sand dunes to sandy beaches and lush green parks, from dusty villages to luxurious residential districts and from ancient houses with wind-towers to ultra modern shopping malls. Dubai is a unique combination of cosmopolitan society with an international lifestyle, yet with a culture deeply rooted in the Islamic traditions of Arabia.

Bastakiya

The old Bastakiya district with its narrow lanes and tall wind towers gives a tantalising glimpse of old Dubai. In the past, the city was famous for a mass of windtowers which lined the Creek on either side. These were not merely decorative; they were the only means of cooling houses in the days before mains electricity.

 

Sheikh Saeed’s House

Dating from the late 1800s, Sheikh Saeed’s House was built in a commanding position near the sea so the ruler could observe shipping activity from its balconies. With its windtowers and layers of rooms built around a central courtyard, it is a fine example of regional architecture.

Jumeirah Mosque

The city has many fine mosques. One of the largest and most beautiful Jumeriah mosque - is a spectacular example of modern Islamic architecture and one of Dubai’s most photographed sights. Built of stone in medieval Fatimid tradition, the mosque dome is a city landmark.

 

Grand Mosque

Situated on the Bur Dubai side of the Creek near the Ruler’s court Grand Mosque was re-built in 1998 and now has, at 70 meters, the city’s tallest minaret. It has 45 small domes in addition to nine large ones boasting stained glass panels, making it a distinguished landmark.

Dubai Museum

AI Fahidi Fort, which houses the Dubai Museum, is another imposing building. It once guarded the city’s landward approaches. Built around 1799, it has served variously as palace, garrison and prison. As a museum it was renovated in 1970 and the galleries are full of colourful and evocative dioramas, complete with life-size figures and sound and light effects.

Umm AI Sheif Majlis

The summer resort of the late Ruler of Dubai has been restored and is open to the public. Built in the early 1950s in the coastal Umm Suqeim area, the majlis gardens feature a reproduction of the traditional falaj irrigation system.

Heritage and diving village
