Bastakia Quarter, Dubai Reviews

  • It is the cheapest tourism attraction i had seen in Dubai. Despite the entry tickets being low in price, the place is good and requires a visit if you love history. It tells you about the journey of Dubai from a poor nation to a wonderful attraction. it has a lot of art galleries to tell you everything about Emirates. I really loved this place.

  • A very nice place to visit and explore many things there. It's a peaceful place to rest your mind.This place has resemblance of old Dubai architect. There is a museum to explore, lots of old coins and other things inside the coin museum. Museum is closed in the evening so you have to come early if you want to see the museum. There are also old art and craft you can find at this place. This place is near to abra, at last don't forget to check Arabian tea house.

  • Place is nice but you cannot stay long. It gives you all the good and old vibes for certain things and is a one time must visit. Remember to stay hydrated at all time.

  • This is best place to cool yourself.. Walking through path and enjoying history of dubai..watching over their arts.. statue.. amazing... lovely place

  • This definitely is the place to be if you want to immerse yourself in the heritage of the Emirates. There are several museums and art galleries that you can visit featuring the old and the new. There are themed cafes where you can get bites to eat and also serve traditional Emirati food. A few things to keep in mind: if coming by car, parking might be a challenge especially during weekends but there are paid parking lots that's about a block away. Bring water! This is mostly an outdoor venue so do bring a lot of water if exploring during the summer months. Truly worth a visit!
