Visit the Historic Attractions with Cheap Holidays to Dubai

by Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides

Located in the Arabian Gulf's south-western corner, Dubai is a globally renowned city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is known for its rich cultural heritage and warm hospitality, which has won the hearts of millions of tourists over the years. Dubai is also home to world-famous attractions, including the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa. What makes this glamorous destination in the Middle East even more popular is its tolerance and a cosmopolitan atmosphere. However, you are required to be sensitive to their religious and cultural beliefs while exploring certain attractions.

You'll get to know more about the history of the city upon visiting some of its well-preserved historical attractions during your cheap Dubai holidays. The Dubai emirate and its capital city have been ruled by the Al Maktoum family since the early 19th century. It is the result of their liberal outlook and progressive leadership that Dubai prospered to such an extent. Today, the city has become a major business and tourism hub of the Middle East region. Under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai has become one of the world's prominent cities.

During your Dubai holidays, you'll get to explore the elegant malls and prominent buildings of the city. The low costs of operation and logistics combined with a world-class infrastructure and liberal policies of the government have attracted many investors over the years. As a result, trade and tourism have shown a steady growth, enabling the economy to expand and diversify. The low crime rate and political stability of the country have also resulted in a steady increase in the number of tourists and the establishment of businesses in the city.

Dubai Creek is one of the places you can visit during your Dubai holidays. This particular area gives you some important insights into life in this city before the discovery of oil. You'll also get to witness the traditional ways of trading while enjoying your stroll. From one of the small water taxis called 'abras', you can get some attractive views of the Creek and the traditional boats called 'dhows'. You can also visit Bastakiya, an old neighbourhood in the city, to get a glimpse of the times when life in Dubai was quite laid-back and there was hardly any hustle-bustle of crowds.

While in Dubai, you can also visit Sheikh Saeed's House, which was constructed in the late 19th century near the sea. It was built by the ruler for the purpose of observing the shipping activities. The building is a great example of the region's fantastic architecture and features wind towers and rooms that have been built around a courtyard. During your time spent in the city, you can also visit the Jumeirah Mosque. Although Dubai has many mosques with fascinating designs, this particular mosque has been built according to the medieval Fatimid traditions. The mosque looks very attractive after sunset when it is illuminated by subtle lighting. It is also one of the most photographed attractions in the city.

If you’ve got some time at the city’s airport after arriving in any of the cheap flights to Dubai, you can explore the exciting facilities offered at the Terminals.
