1. CULTURE VULTURES AT THE CREEK
WHERE: Al Bandar Rotana – Creek, Dubai
WHAT: The Cultural Escape
Check into Al Bandar Rotana and you’re perfectly positioned to explore the historical side of Dubai. Take a water taxi or abra across the Creek and you’ll find yourself in the recently remodelled Al Seef heritage district, where traditional buildings give a flavour of what life was like in times gone by. Today, visitors can wander though the colourful neighbourhood and observe traditional building techniques and Arabian wind towers, or soak it all in from the terrace of one of many cafes and restaurants.
The hotel has curated a special walking tour of the neighbourhood, taking in some of the cultural highlights on the doorstep. The Cultural Escape package includes a tour of the area, a two-night stay for two people, breakfast in Salt & Pepper and a late check-out.
