Explore old and new Dubai

Gazing at its ultra modern skyline, it’s difficult to believe that Dubai started life as a small fishing village. Today, alongside the luxury and glamour of modern Dubai, there’s still plenty to see from those early days. It is these contrasting sides of the city that you’ll experience on this half day exploration of old and new Dubai.
Starting with a photo stop at the iconic Palm Jumeirah, the striking palm shaped archipelago, we’ll move on to the Lost Chambers Aquarium at the Atlantis hotel. A mesmerising underwater realm, home to more than 65,000 fish and marine animals.
From here, you’ll leave the splendour of the modern city to delve into the rich history of the Old Town. Cross the Dubai Creek in a traditional boat to reach the historic Al Fahidi neighbourhood, where much of the mid-19th century infrastructure has been preserved.  Enjoy the vibes of the Al Seef waterfront where an old-world heritage area meets the modern world of restaurants, malls and hotels.
Then, as we cruise the Dubai International Financial Center Road, take in Dubai’s contemporary skyline and reflect on the area’s dramatic rise, before taking the scenic route back to the port.
