Step back into old Dubai at Bastakia Quarter, a preserved portion of town showcasing traditional architecture and an ancient way of life. Stroll through the neighborhood's narrow streets to admire the courtyard houses and their tall wind towers. Decorative and practical adornments, these towers were once the best way of cooling homes in the unforgiving heat of the desert. The area's scenic location by the creek offers a pleasant introduction to the city's heritage, with a museum and cultural center alongside the traditional homes.
