    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    This walking tour is a sensory journey through Dubai’s food and art, starting off at the Dubai institution, Ravi Restaurant, which has been in business for more than four decades. At the tour’s end, there’s a striking new cultural hub: the Etihad Museum, where interactive exhibitions chronicle the birth of the United Arab Emirates.

    In between, there’s the life of a community at street level, in one of Dubai’s most diverse and approachable neighbourhoods. You’ll pass by busy mosques and properous businesses, stop off for sweets or indulgent snacks, and see street art that celebrates the country’s heritage. Along the way, you’ll also discover why Dubai holds a special place in the hearts of people around the world.

    Tips Tips

    Places to stop along the way:

    Ravi Restaurant, Regal Fabrics Shop, Nujood Sweets, Al Mallah Restaurant, Firas Sweets, Etihad Museum

    Best time of day:

    The Etihad Museum is open every day until 8pm. If you intend to spend time there at the end of the tour, allow yourself at least an hour to reach it. But you’re also best off avoiding the midday heat, so we recommend starting the tour between 4pm and 6pm.

    Precautions:

    * Take care when crossing the road, even at pedestrian crossings.
    * If you do this tour during the day, ensure that you have adequate protection from the sun and remember to stay hydrated. There are plenty of shops that sell water along the way.
