What travelers say:

20230222 Morning: 1. The "Arab Historical Buildings Complex" is the old city of Dubai, with a history of at least 200 years. It is a leisure old street integrating museums, ancient buildings, hotels and dining bars. ① Address: Al Musalla Street, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. ② Transportation: The bus is direct but it takes 800 meters to drive. ③ peak season: none. ④ Time: 1 hour. 2. The total area of this attraction is not large, each street has its own unique small landscape, full of exotic customs: large canoe (the physical model displayed on the land, the introduction board said that the ship was used from 1972 to 1992, and will participate in the boating competition during the festival), Desert residential tents (restored to the Arab people living in the desert. Most of the UAE is still desert, and Dubai built with money is just a bustling corner. There is a free drinking mouth next to it), urban residential houses (a lot of wooden branches are sticking out on the upper floors of khaki residential houses. It is a rain drain. The interior is a "mouth" shaped hollow courtyard, and the wall is doped with corals, shells and other marine life bones. On the second floor of the residential building near the river bank, you can enjoy the beautiful view of the "Dubai River"), "Dubai Old City Wall (Wall of Old Dubai) (a site, more than 200 years ago), Mosques (more than 4,800 mosques in the UAE, more than 1,400 in Dubai, large and small everywhere), carts, murals, circuit boxes full of stickers, camel-horse sculptures, white robes and black robes photo frames (white robes for men, black robes for women), outdoor sofa cushions, etc. All are petty bourgeoisie photo spots. 3. There is a "Coin Museum (Coins Museum)" on the north side of the scenic spot, which shows the history of coin development in this area. The museum is very small, there are only coins on the first floor, and the oil lamps on the wall are very interesting; The second floor is an open-air terrace, and the view from the height is another interesting, and the roof of the mosque next door can be photographed. Speaking of currency, by the way, this year is the world's first banknote, that is, the 1000th anniversary of the issuance of the Northern Song Dynasty "Jiaozi". The banknote issued in the Northern Song Dynasty Tiansheng Yuan Year (1023) has pioneered the history of human currency. Now the UAE and even most countries have not yet popularized QR code payment. At most, you can only swipe your card, so in the payment field, China has led the world again after 1,000 years. 4. There are many restaurants dotted with various flowers on the road on the southwest side. The open-air table has a variety of skin colors and costumes gathered, and it is also a beautiful scenery. I wore an arab white robe bought from the domestic online for 27 yuan, and I also had a beard for a week. Many local Arabs greeted me and interacted. 5. Recently, the Dubai exhibition is intensive, here will hold the "sikka" art festival from February 24 to March 5, mainly displaying paintings, so the streets and alleys are full of exhibitions and stage staff, mostly from less developed countries, locals only 10% of the population of Dubai. The tour ended without stopping to the pier and take the traditional local "abra wooden boat" to the other side of the river.
