Old Dubai

The Gold and Spice souk on Old Baladiva Street, with the world's largest golden ring, the Star of Taiba...

In the historic Al Fahidi neighborhood, also known as Al Bastakiya, a recreation of a typical Bedouin encampment.


                                           I was welcomed into a traditional home for a cup of tea.


The neighborhood was once slated to be demolished but is now undergoing extensive renovations. The Al Fahidi Fort, below, is the oldest existing building in the city. Erected in 1787, it was renovated in 2021 and now houses the Dubai Museum.


A traditional rowing race boat, equipped for 78 rowers, that raced in every annual race from 1972-1992.
