  • There are few historical places in Dubai hence, heritage house is a important place to visit to explore history. It is well maintained place. Just beside it, there is a Al Ahmadiya School. You must visit it too. It is old religious arabic school. So, both places must be visited to explore history. There is no fee for entry which is good thing otherwise, even one sip of water costs in Dubai.

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.
