Al Bastakiya is a unique historic district that dates back to the 1890s. In its prime, the locality was filled with 60 housing units, most of which were separated by narrow, winding lanes. This area is an amazing contrast to the modern glass and steel towers that dominate Dubai’s skyline. Clean lines and sandy beiges characterize the wind-tower architecture that houses several galleries, cafés, and museums. (Dubai - United Arab Emirates)
