Whether it’s wandering some of the world’s greatest museums, discovering the culture and traditions of old Dubai or visiting some of the most beautiful mosques, we have our finger on the pulse of all the hottest cultural happenings.
One of Dubai's most famous landmarks, the Museum of the Future (MOTF) takes pride of place along the city's superhighway, Sheikh Zayed Road. Founded by the Dubai Future Foundation and launched on 22 February 2022, the museum explores how society could evolve in the coming decades using science and technology.
Termed a 'living museum', it incorporates elements of traditional exhibitions, immersive theatre and themed attractions, so visitors can look beyond the present and towards the future's limitless possibilities.
Al Seef is one of Dubai's most popular leisure districts, situated directly on the bustling Dubai Creek. The popular destination offers a charming atmosphere that pays homage to the UAE’s distinct heritage.
A neighbourhood steeped in history, Al Seef is the place for visitors looking to shop, dine and stay. Every building façade in Al Seef has been given an old school makeover to take you back to Dubai's past, from the shopping stalls right down to Starbucks, and the effect is simply delightful.
An abra, which means “to cross” in Arabic, runs every few minutes throughout the day between four stations along Dubai Creek. The bustling Dubai Creek has been the lifeblood of locals for generations, as the favoured site for early settlers and where the city’s first port and pearling industry thrived.
