Dubai Fort is situated at the south of Dubai Creek, at the Al Souk Al Kabir area which teems with vigorous trade and is close to the Ruler’s Court (the monarch’s divan).

Dubai Museum “Al Fahidi Fort”, located at Old Dubai where you can feel the melancholic vibe of the place. Whenever I visit Dubai, I always went to the Dubai Mall (where my husband’s worksite) and Ibn Batutta (duh that’s where the bus stops from Abu Dhabi).

From the Metro Red Line Burjuman (no.19) change station to the Metro Green Line and drop in Al Ras (no.23). A 1.8km walk from the Al Ras Station where you can find a few spots to drop by like Dubai Gold Souk, Perfume Souk, Spice Souk and Dubai Creek.

Ticket prices at 3 AED for general public and 1 AED for below 6 years old.

We went last January 4, Thursday which means it almost the weekend or the Friday in other countries. There were many tourists, like Chinese, Indian and Malaysian (which I thought to be Kabayan because they really look like Filipinos). The place is like a time capsule conserved in an underground pit. Since you will encounter many kinds of tourists, the smell of their armpits is still suffocating (even if I lived here for almost three years).

The smell makes me hastily take a photo and puke all the food I ate. I didn’t got the time to read all the historical facts because its too dark in the pit.
