Al Bastakiya is a historical area in Old Dubai that has been preserved, and is one of the few sections of Dubai one can walk through to feel what life might have been like many years ago for Emiratis. My friend and I wandered down here on a Friday when most attractions were closed, but enjoyed poking our noses into awesome art galleries and into the Dubai Museum, which is a treat for anyone who enjoys reading about history. I loved seeing all the replications of historic aspects of Dubai, but I do feel it’s a shame that so little of the olden times has been preserved in the UAE.
