Al Bastakiya or the Bastakiya district is Dubai’s very cultural quarter. It also happens to be one of the most cherished parts of the city that occupies a place of pride in every Emerati’s heart and is a highly recommended tourist attraction. Therefore, a Visit to the Bastakiya District is one of the best things to do in Dubai for culture vultures and lifestyle enthusiasts. For your family, it’s an entire day of fun and historical discovery!

Also known as the Al Fahidi district, Al Bastakiya is a maze of narrow cobbled streets and ancient mud houses with straw roofs. Spend a day that is straight out of the Arabian Nights on your Visit to the Bastakiya District and discover amazing restaurants, cafes, art galleries, museums, windmills and perfectly restored old buildings to understand how life was in Dubai, before the discovery of oil. A Visit to the Bastakiya District is a trip back in time to when Dubai was just a loose collection of individual Sheikdoms and its people were simple date farmers and fishermen.

Visit historic buildings such as the Dar Al Nadwa, the Gallery Majlis and the Bastakiya Nights restaurant which were built between 1890 and 1930. These will make your Visit to the Bastakiya District more enriching and will surely give you a break from the fast life of New Dubai. Take a walking tour through the shaded lanes of the Bastakiya district to see a different side of Dubai which doesn’t involve luxury hotels and designer boutiques
