Bastakia Quarter, Dubai Reviews

  • Best place to know about the UAE's history, culture and also tradition. The people over there are so kind and polite. The food they serve in the cultural meal package is really good. But don't expect any fun activities.

  • The whole historic district is a reconstruction of old-time village. In this nice place, mostly quiet and not crowded, its buildings coloured so to resemble desert sand you'll find shops filled with souvenirs, cafes, museums, craft shops and much more. There's also a tent with typical Bedouin's objects for everyday life and either a falcon or a camel guarding its entrance.

  • The architect, the atmosphere and by walking there you can get the feeling of ancient Arabia, more or less. They have a museum, many art galleries and good restorant there. The evening walk is more delightful and bright

  • A very educative and informative place specially for kids to learn about the Arab culture and their beautiful architecture. A very cosy calm place . A must visit for all the tourists. Camel milk ice cream, sandwiches and tea could be enjoyed in the traditional set up of Arab homes.

  • Different environment than usual in Dubai, quiet place and ambience. Nice interesting places hiding behind small doors for food and coffee.
