Not a lot to see (just several small streets and old city wall) but still very interesting to see how Dubai started as a small port. Whilst there visit the Coffee museum, the Dubai museum and have a meal at the Arabian Tea House.

The neighborhood itself is open and you can enjoy walking around. You’ll have to pay for entrance to museums.
