  2. Al Fahidi - The starting point for each tour and one of the oldest neighborhoods in Dubai.
  3. Al Seef - Old meets new in this unique heritage hub. Full of activities to do in both the daytime and nighttime, it’s home to a marina, hotel, floating market, dining boulevard, a 1950’ s style souk, and more. 
  4. Al Fahidi Fort (Dubai Museum) - Constructed in 1787, this is the oldest building in Dubai and it’s a great place to learn about the history of the city and the pastime and tradition of pearl diving.
  5. Abra - Otherwise known as Dubai creek. At one time this was the biggest trading hub in the UAE.
  6. Al Shindagha – These museums found in the former homes of the ruling family show what it used to be like to live alongside Dubai Creek. Guests can also visit the perfume house here. 
  7. Etihad Museum (Union House) - The Union House flag is the largest in the UAE.
