Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood

Over a century of history on show

See what traditional life in Old Dubai was like during the mid-19th century at Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. Located along the Dubai Creek, this district is a key heritage site which has preserved much of the original infrastructure.

The traditional wind towers constructed from stone, teak, gypsum, palm wood and sandalwood represent only a small part of Al Fahidi’s history. Each alley, twisting pathway and breezy tower tells a story of a life before the Emirates.

Social life, cultural development and trade were prominent throughout this period. And you can still experience what life was like within these same streets – a must when visiting Dubai.

Follow the winding streets in Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood to discover a plethora of cultural activities, museums, art galleries, special events and traditional food.

The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding is located here, where you can take a tour of all the different aspects of this district. Keep an eye out for the Sikka Art Fair, Artists-in-Residence Programme, Heritage Week, holiday events and religious celebrations like Ramadan.

Escape the skyscrapers and take a glimpse into how Emiratis from past generations lived their lives in this historical district.
