Museums of Dubai - Wander with Nada

My previous post included photos from the souks I visited with Nada from Wander with Nada.  Not only did we visit several markets, but we also visited two museums and took a little boat ride.  Dubai isn't really known for its museums.  I definitely recommend a stop at The Women's Museum at Bait Al Banat and The Dubai Museum and Al Fahidi FortBoth of these are small but important.  Throw in a boat ride on a traditional abra across the Dubai Canal and you see why this walking tour was the highlight of my time in Dubai.

Souks of Old Dubai - Wander with Nada

I've been eager to visit the Middle East and I finally got my chance.  I tagged along with Matt on a work trip to Dubai.  He was working all day and I was happy to enjoy the hotel pool or walk around the famous Dubai Malls by myself.  But I also wanted to see a bit more of the city.  I was reluctant to set out on my own so I booked a morning tour with Wander with NadaIt was the perfect way to explore beyond the skyscrapers and shopping.  This tour was the highlight of my time in Dubai.  I came away from it buzzing with information and a new appreciation for a different side of the city.
