A Quintessential Experience

Between the Dubai Creek and Bur Dubai sits a maze of sandstone buildings that plays host to the Bastakia Quarter. The authenticity of Dubai is truly alive here, as the heritage site hosts wind towers, the Ostra gallery that specialises in contemporary art and sculpture, and an Arabian Tea House situated in the courtyard. For a waterfront stroll, head to the Shindagha, a historically self-contained area that still showcases many of Dubai’s old houses. A few of these houses have been converted into museums, including the Traditional Architecture Museum and the Sheikh Saeed al Maktoum House. The autonomy and independence still resonates in the area, it’s here you will find a welcoming local spirit and an accommodating atmosphere. Our 5-star hotels will be sure to inject a little luxury to your Bur Dubai holidays, with all inclusive apartments and swanky suites on the menu. If you can’t get enough of the luxurious life, head over to the Dubai Marina where you can visit over 130 outlets at the Dubai Mall, including a cinema and authentic restaurants at the seven-storey gourmet tower. Beach bums are in luck too as the highly recommended Jumeirah Beach is just a short drive away. Sit on a sunbed on the sand or have a barbeque on the well-preserved lawns, or grab an ice cream or cold drink at the promenade cafes, a necessity when the temperatures are reaching 45C in the summer!
