We will meet you at Burjuman metro station and take you to the historic district of Bastakiya- the oldest standing residential area of Dubai that dates from the 1890s. Many of the buildings in Bastakiya are topped with wind towers that pre-dates the arrival of airconditioning and is surprisingly effective in the summer heat of Dubai. Next, we will walk down to Dubai Creek-which is not the city’s most important trading port anymore but will always be the heart of Dubai. Here you will see buildings made of coral, mud, gypsum and palm wood. We'll capture a few shots against these amazing backgrounds, very different from the modern and contemporary Dubai full of skyscrapers. Then we'll take a round trip ride on the Dubai Abra, the city's most traditional mode of transport. These are small motorized water taxis used to travel between Deira and Bur Dubai. For centuries, it has remained one of Dubai’s most frequented modes of transport, making it the symbol of the city ’s history and heritage. We will click beautiful pictures on the Abra too. We're sure you would wish to spend some more time at this beautiful & serene place. You will get 20 professionally clicked & edited digital pictures of the tour mailed within 3 days.
