ONE Investments is extremely proud of our Dubai properties and we know anyone who buys from us will be immensely happy with their choice. But what do you do once your done unpacking all your moving boxes and are ready to start exploring? You might head over to the Dubai Mall or you may want to have round of golf at the Tiger Woods International Golf Course. But if you really want to immerse yourself in Dubai, we’ve gathered a list of the must sees and dos.
1. Dubai Spice Souk
Dubai’s sprawling spice market is the most entertaining of all the city’s souks. It’s bustling and crowding, with intoxicating sights and smells. Many of the vendors sell traditional ingredients—Persian dried limes, saffron, barberries, rose hips, and Middle Eastern spice mixes.
2. Abra Ride Across Dubai Creek
Riding an abra, or traditional wooden boat, is one of the quaintest and low-key ways to get a feel for life in Dubai. The boats gather on either side of Dubai Creek—in Deira or Bur Dubai—and can carry about 20 people. Many locals use the boats to get across the creek quickly and to avoid traffic, but you’ll also see lots of tourists, especially at dusk.
3. Etihad Museum
This ultra-modern museum offers a comprehensive look at the formation of the seven emirates that comprise the UAE. It draws a diverse crowd of UAE nationals and history-buff tourists. The museum lies on the site where the country’s unification was signed in 1971.
