  • Wild Wadi Water Park

    Dubai Things to Do

    The Wild Wadi is a great waterpark with a great location right by the famous Burj al Arab and Jumeirah Beach hotels. A great way to spend the day. Although, if you travel during the hot summer months when temperatures are regularly in the mid 40s, care is needed to prevent a doze of sun stroke or sun burn. One of the most memorable rides is the...

  • Dubai or Dubai?

    I followed about 30 Km of coast but didn't go inland, so, I didn't know if I've been all the time in the city of Dubai, or, for some time and distance, somewhere in Dubai (emirate) out of the city.Being so, I decided to post all my notes in the city of Dubai. Wrong? How do I know? The Mall of Emirates with its snow resort, several kilometers far...

  • Old Dubai

    People complain that 'old' Dubai was torn down to make way for the new city. Not true! The original settlement was tiny fishing village and only in 1833 did it begin to develop. It was still a very small town clustered around the Creek mouth until the mid-twentieth century, so the new areas are actually built on empty land.The older parts are...

  • Heritage Village

    Hertage Village is on the banks of the Creek in Shindagah, which is the site of the original settlement which became Dubai. It's on Dubai-side, or Bur Dubai, at the Gulf end of the Creek.What's fascinating to me is that there are more Emirati and other Gulf Arab visitors than other tourists, and that gives it a genuine atmosphere rather than a...

    If you're "into" museums, then the Dubai Museum is well-worth a visit.Situated in the Al Fahidi Fort, it contains a wide range of replicas of traditional ways of life that sadly seems to have dissapeared as Dubai emerges as a very important part of the modern world.Allow at least 2 hours to visit. Addmittance fees (unable to provide costs)
