Bastakiya Quarter, also known as the Arabian historical and cultural complex in some strategies, is full of cafes and galleries and has a charm of 798, but although it is a "building complex", its area is not large, probably only about one tenth of 798. Bastakiya is said to be an Arab architectural model. Ancient Arabs invented a hollow wind tower to absorb heat in order to dispel the dry heat in the desert. It is called the early Arab air conditioning. Because our arrival time is too early, less than 9 o'clock, all business places are not open, we can only guess outside the life of a thousand and one nights. However, there are also early benefits, no tourists, or even rare local people, only a bike girl wearing a veil, breaking the peace of the square. Although it is an ancient building complex, there must also be some old-fashioned buildings, such as the northernmost independent buildings, seemingly the same old, walking close, unexpectedly is the subway, down the escalator, is also an Arab-style decoration, and the old style of the ground into one.
Bastakiya Quarter, in the old city of Bastakia, near the Dubai Museum, is the oldest site in Dubai and the only remaining wind tower complex along the Arabian coast. Old Bastakia's crisscrossed narrow alleys and houses with tall chimney-shaped wind towers bear witness to Dubai's past. This is the last reserve of ancient Dubai. The air is full of nostalgia and history. There are many arts and crafts shops, restaurants, architectural heritage associations, museums and so on in the old city of Bastakia. You can go inside and have a look.
The historic area has been relatively dilapidated and the signs of history have been preserved.
This place is very good. If you have a chance, you must try it. Five-star recommendation
This historic area is a famous historic site in the Arab region. You can feel it.
This morning's theme is cultural exploration. Three markets + Dubai Museum and Arab Historic Architecture Complex + Chieftain's Former Residence and Dubai Folklore Village do their homework well in advance. In the morning, they found the subway station smoothly, bought two silver cards and one 25AED, and started our cultural journey.
The history of Dubai is of great value to visit and commemorate.
Bastakia is the site of an ancient Arab complex. Bastakiya is named after the Bastak District of Iran!
