Birding Breaks

For birdwatchers, Dubai has something really special to offer, a tidal wetland right on its doorstep, within a few minutes of the center of town. The city skyline forms a backdrop for thousands of flamingoes, herons, ducks and shorebirds, which Feed and rest on the mudflats on their migration between Asia and Africa.

Having expanded along both banks of the Creek, Dubai’s central business district is divided into two parts — Deira on the northern side and Bur Dubai to the south — connected by a tunnel and two bridges. Each has its share of fine mosques and busy souks, of public buildings, shopping malls, hotels, office towers, banks, hospitals, schools, apartments and villas.
Al Fahidi Fort, which houses the Dubai Museum, is another imposing building. It once guarded the city’s landward approaches. Built around 1799, it has served variously as palace, garrison and prison.
The Souks  
The souks on both sides of the Creek are attractive not just for their shopping bargains but also as places for the sightseer and photographer.

A huddle of narrow alleyways has survived on the Deira side despite intensive building in recent years. In the tiny lanes of the spice souk, the atmosphere and the scents of the past can be savored. Bags of spices, incense, rose petals and traditional medicinal products are stacked outside each stall.

Along the slightly larger lanes of the gold souk, each shop window is crammed with gold necklaces, rings, bangles, earrings and brooches. In the evening the area is a hive of activity. Gold prices are among the lowest in the world
