Bastakiya district

The Bastakiya district of Dubai, with its narrow laneways and stone streets, is a must for anyone interested in the history of the emirate. Established at the end of the 19th century, the district features traditional courtyards, wind towers and bustling markets. Many of the traditional buildings house galleries, cafes and boutique hotels. Part of the old city wall that surrounded Bur Dubai, built in 1800, can still be seen here, in one of the most elegant areas in Dubai.
