Overview
Experience Dubai in a totally different way! Catch a glimpse of “the other side” of Dubai during this private virtual tour with me. Away from skyscrapers and crowded touristic spots, I will show you the Origin of Dubai using today's technology! Virtually explore one of the oldest areas of Dubai and kickstart your tour at the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, also known as Bastakiya. Its narrow walking streets, sand-colored houses topped with wind towers are breathtaking! See this beautiful area and get a feeling of what life was like years ago. Next stop: the Dubai Museum! Here you will find out more about the time when Dubai wasn’t driven by its oil fields. Hear more about the city’s old economy and how life was before oil was discovered. It’s time to see Khor Dubai and Abra ride to admire Deira’s high-rises from the water. After that, I will take you to Dubai's favorite gold, spice, and textile souk. This virtual tour will also help you to plan your next trip to Dubai!

I really enjoyed this experience. I have never been to Dubai but always wanted to go, this was a great way to get a taster and learn about the more hidden secrets of the city. I have planned a trip there next year, now I feel really prepared to know what to do and where to go.
