Learn about the 19th-century life in Dubai as you visit the Dubai Museum and weave through the alleys of the Al Fahidi Historical District. Next, board an ‘abra’, a traditional water taxi that ferried the locals through the years across the Dubai Creek. On the opposite side of the Creek take a stroll through the spice market, fruit and vegetable market, and the Gold Souk. You will also stop for an opportunity to take photographs of the Jumeirah mosque, an architectural landmark in Dubai.

Step out of the vehicle and soak in the grandeur of the mighty desert sunset and remember to take numerous photos of the marvelous views in front of you. Continue to an authentic Bedouin campsite complete with a henna designer, local attire and refreshments for your enjoyment. Be adventurous, take a camel ride and travel as the ancients did in the past, perhaps following the very same trails.
