Your experience


  • Discover the lively and multicultural district of Satwa, which is far away from the typical tourist destinations
  • Explore Zabeel, where the ruling residences are located and where the locals live
  • Strengthen yourself with a traditional snack and a cup of tea in a small restaurant
  • Enjoy a breathtaking view over the city from the famous Dubai Frame


Have you ever wondered how "normal" people live in Dubai? Who actually keeps the whole machinery running?

Dubai is a melting pot of around 200 nationalities. Most of them come from countries whose economies are not flourishing and try to make a better life possible for their families in their home country from Dubai.

On this tour you will get to know the human side of this fascinating city. The journey takes you through the Al Quoz industrial area, which is also the residence of many guest workers. Many hotels and companies have their staff accommodation here. Not far away there is a so-called "Housing Project" for locals.

Satwa is a lively district with colourful people and the inhabitants of Dubai like to shop there. Because there are absolutely everything from car spare parts, kitchen appliances, fabrics and perfume to spices and gold and that at much better prices than in the malls and the markets flooded by tourists at the Creek.

In contrast, you will then travel to Zabeel, past the ruler's palace into a hidden corner where you can enjoy delicious and rather unusual snacks such as Omlette Paratta and Omani Chips sandwiches with a wonderful cup of Karak Chai in a small cafeteria. While you taste your meal, you can admire the work of an old-established tailor for Jalabias. A jalabia is the traditional robe under the black abaya of women.

Freshly strengthened you will get to see something modern after all. The Dubai Frame, an architectural masterpiece, has been strategically built at a point 150 metres above sea level, overlooking the impressive skyline of the Sheikh Zayed Road, the Karama Workers' Settlement, Port Rashid and Creek.
