Why you need to spend some time getting to know the origins of Dubai

WATCH: Inside the Dubai Museum and historical neighbourhood

If you’re yet to get lost exploring Dubai’s historical quarter, then the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood is filled with some amazing insights into the origins of this amazing city.

There are tonnes of art galleries, historical gems, cafés, cultural heritage sites and more, all contained within the neighbourhood, and there’s so much to learn about Dubai and where it came from.

Tim and Darragh from Time Out Dubai Vlogs spent an afternoon literally getting lost among narrow alleyways, stumbling upon amazing pieces of art, learning about the Dubai Wall, which protected the city in the 1800s, and then visited the Dubai Museum in the Al Fahidi Fort, which was first constructed in the 1700s.

You can check out the amazing parts of the Historical Neighbourhood in the episode below, and there’s still time to enter our competition to win a two-night stay at Atlantis, The Palm. Be sure to subscribe to the Time Out Dubai YouTube channel by Sunday November 25, and you’ll be in with a chance to win.

Every week we get out and about into this awesome city and find out the best stuff there is going on. Whether it’s jumping out of planes, jumping off of mountains, swimming with sharks, failing to surf, taking on the city’s craziest food challenges, getting a kiss from a seal, falling out of supercars or anything in between, if it’s happening in your city, the Time Out Dubai crew are on it.
