  • A slice of historical Dubai; now closed
    I visited the Al Ahmadiya school, which is located in the heart of Deira not too far from the more famous Gold and Spice Souks. The school was converted into a heritage building, showing how traditional schools used to be. A central courtyard was surrounded by a two-storey building, with classrooms on both floors. The place was rather simple and unassuming in its layout. It is worth a visit only if one is deeply interested in the traditional education system (now not visible), else q visit to the Dubai Museum and the Bastakiya area are sufficient. This place is currently closed for renovations and hopefully, its new avatar will be worth it.

    This is a nice museum in the heart of Deira in Old Dubai. Hard to find, but worth the effort. Interesting exhibits on the history of Dubai and life in the old city.
