Dubai Sightseeing

 

dubai tour package, dubai tour packages,  dubai tours, dubai packages

Dubai is not a destination that is easy to explore on foot, with many of the areas of interest, such as Deira and Jumeirah Beach, situated far apart. Sightseeing within the city centre is split mainly between the Deira and Bur Dubai flanks of Dubai Creek.

Deira, on the right bank of the waterway, is the business and commercial heart of the city and is also home to the best shopping. Highlights include the myriad souks, including the Spice Souk, Deira gold Souk and Dubai Covered Souk. Deira is also the most atmospheric part of Dubai for a spot of aimless wandering, with a real sense of manic activity and rambling streets that are in sharp contrast to the order and calm of much of the city.

Meanwhile, historic Bur Dubai has less of a bustling atmosphere and is home to a number of tourist attractions, including the Dubai Museum, Grand Mosque and Sheikh Saeed Al-Maktoum's House.

Dubai Creek itself is also something of an attraction, whether visitors choose to take the traditional dhow cruises along its length or just to stroll along its banks on the promenade on the Bur Dubai side. From here, there are good views back towards the ultra-modern skyline on the other flank of the Creek.

Breaking away, west from the mouth of Dubai Creek, is Jumeirah Beach, not really one beach as such but rather a sweeping strip of sand fringed by the bath temperature waters of the Arabian Gulf. Much of the beach these days is officially the private preserve of the ever increasing string of beach-side luxury hotels, although there is little to stop people wandering where they want to, once on the sand.

Many of Dubai's best hotels are located on or nearby Jumeirah Beach, including the unmistakable hulk of the Burj al Arab (or ‘Arab Tower'), as well as leisure facilities like Wild Wadi Water Park and the more traditional attraction of Jumeirah Mosque, which is regarded by both locals and tourists alike as the most charming mosque in Dubai. The new Madinat Jumeirah development has become the focus of Jumeirah's eating and drinking scene.

One new attraction that visitors can see clearly taking shape off the coast are the Palm Islands, the three islands that are set to become the new focus of the city when they are completed, and the World archipelago

Dubai is changing at a rapid rate - Ski Dubai, the Middle East's first indoor ski resort, opened in 2005 and Burj Dubai, set to be the world's tallest tower, is due for completion by the end of 2008. Then there is Dubailand, a massive development in the desert that the emirate's movers and shakers aim to turn into the city's number one tourist attraction. Its completion date (or rather dates given the sheer scale of the project) are fluid to say the least.

DESCRIPTION OF SIGHTSEEING IN DEIRA AREA:

Deira Covered Souk (District)
This souk specializes in textiles and is located in the Al Sabkha Bus station area, Dubai. This is one of the main souks in Dubai and is well worth a wander and a barter.

Dubai Gold Souk in Deira
Dubai boasts one of the largest retail gold markets in the world, selling everything from ingots to intricately worked jewellery at bargain prices. The street-front stores hide alleys of smaller shops with glittering show windows.

What makes shopping for gold at this Deira souk so special and worthwhile is the fact that the gold prices are among the lowest in the world due to low gold prices as well as no sales tax PS. The gold souk is adjacent to the spice souk

Spice Souk
The narrow lanes of the spice souk are redolent with cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, incense, dried fruit and nuts. Imported from all over the Middle East, they are sold straight out of open sacks that surround the shop keepers.

DESCRIPTION OF SIGHTSEEING IN BUR DUBAI

Dubai Museum
Al Fahidi Fort, which houses the Dubai Museum, is another imposing building. It once guarded the city's landlord approaches. Built around 1799, it has served variously as palace, garrison and prison. Timing Open daily from 8.30am - 8.30pm except Fridays: 3pm-8.30pm;
