  • Best place to visit for all ages! I visited this place few days back... My second visit... But this place is closed for 2 months for renovation!
  • Near the souk. Worth to go. Lot more quiet than the souk and a nice place to relax
  • Worth visiting - it is just so surprising to see how Dubai looked like 70 years back...
  • I like historical places, in Dubai it's very difficult to find anything that is old as it's a rapidly evolving city. So places like these gives you a glimpse of what Dubai used to be before the discovery of oil reserves.
  • Interesting place where you can visit several galleries and art exhibitions. Lovely courtyard where serving coffee and refreshments.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
