    This is a lovely open space in Dubai and gets quite green after rainfall.

    There are a few remnants of historical buildings and an Arabian Tea House restaurant, which offers sensational Middle Eastern food. There is also avidities centre with information about the history of the site and the city.

    We were in the Heritage area by the mouth of the Dubai Creek and were visiting the “old” sights that were under construction. Some of the galleries were open and then came upon this rather nice looking house. We tried to enter but it was closed and it was only 4:30 pm? Needless to say we didn’t get to visit the interior but the setting of the house was awesome.

    One of the few historic structures in Bur Dubai, this watchtower was built in 1939 and well restored in 1994. It was one of three warchtowers that used to serve the defence of old Dubai harbour.
