Bastakia Quarter, Dubai Reviews

  • What an amazing place with plenty of historical places museums, galleries, traditional hotels, cosy cafés, souvenir shops and small restaurants. It is a highly recommend place for photo sessions. The place is being developed continuously to add more cultural activities and facilities. There is not so many parking places available as this in the old part of the town so it is recommended to use the bus or take a taxi. You will a genuine side of the Dubai there.

  • You will see totally another Dubai here - not fancy, not modern, but quiet historical and natural as it was years ago. There are interesting places inside the territory - museums (free entry), few cafes and small shops. Would like to recommend this place for a walk and as a venue to take pictures

  • 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.

  • Nice place to walk around after having meal at the Arabian tea house nearby, to get a feeling of old Dubai. Quiet and arty. Not crowded like other tourism place. There are several coffee shops inside, worth a try.

  • Great historical area to explore. Surrounded by nice traditional cafes there a restaurant there that serves camel burger. The coffee museum is close by, make sure you drop by and try their coffee. There are small antique shops and a store that sells art pieces made from leather.
