Head into Old Dubai and take in Al Fahidi, home to restored mudbrick courtyards and wind tower houses, and learn how they were originally built by Persian traders in the late 1800s. Admire Al Fahidi Fort, Dubai’s oldest building and home to Dubai Museum. Cross Dubai Creek aboard an abra (traditional boat) and take a guided stroll around the spice, sweet, and herb stalls of Deira’s aromatic Spice Souk.
