Did a 2 hour trip with Suqlain to learn about old Dubai and try some street food. Suqlain was an excellent guide - knowledgeable and a pleasure to wander with. Highly recommended.

Walking around with Suqlain was tantamount to walking around with a family member. Talking, laughing, and learning about the city he loves while getting to experience a pulse of culture most Dubai tourists never see. He introduced us to our favorite eateries on this trip....More

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
