is a city of endless adventures, but our Bur Dubai hotels give you the best chance of experiencing them all! You’ll be linked to the city’s fascinating past by the unbelievable Dubai Museum – housed in an old fort – and the sandy Grand Mosque. You have not only one but two waterfronts to explore: the super chill Dubai beaches and the old quarter along Dubai Creek. Then when it’s time to break out into other areas, all it takes is a trip on a sleek Dubai Metro train and you’re in the downtown or wandering around the shops of Deira
Shoppers are going to have a blast in Bur Dubai, where you have the chance to experience both sides of Dubai shopping. Bur Dubai Souk is a market near the Creek with simple lanes and corridors lined with shops selling beautiful textiles, cloth, and custom clothes, the perfect place to go if you want to take something special home. For a taste of the world-class shopping you keep hearing about, head to Burjuman Centre, an old mall that stocks the latest brands and fashions in its stores. Its food courts, restaurants and cafes mean that you can stay all day here and shop ‘til you drop!
When you see pictures of Dubai you see its gleaming buildings and modern sights, which are all a very big part of its identity, but what about the old Dubai? What was Dubai like before? The answers are hidden in Bur Dubai and even if you aren’t a history buff, you won’t regret taking time to walk the lanes of Al Bastakya, whose old, sand-coloured buildings are a majestic window into the past. Men in white traditional dress and the occasional camel relax in the squares with tall wind catching towers (old-school air conditioning!) rising above the streets. To make this a perfect trip into cultural Dubai you should head north towards the creek and take in the Grand Mosque, Dubai Museum, and finally Creekside Park, where you can end the day with a sunset cable car ride over the lovely green grounds and Dubai Creek waterfront as the sky burns orange. Chances are you’ll want to come back to try out the park’s mini-golf course, go-kart track and cycling paths.
Bur Dubai does not have any quality beaches of its own, but it won’t take you long to reach Jumeirah Beach
to the south. There is nothing more amazing than standing on this beautiful wide and long stretch of white sand while you look in awe at the Burj Al Arab hotel rising from its island.
When the amount of things to do in Dubai leaves you stumped, our Bur Dubai accommodation is the way to go, putting you right in the heart of this ultra-cool city. The only thing left after that is to book a flight to Dubai
and you’ll soon be getting to know one of the most modern metropolises man has ever created.
