Dubai is known for its opulent architecture and extravagant living. But tear your gaze away from the Burj Khalifa (the world's tallest building) and Burj Al Arab (most expensive 7-star hotel) and you will find rich history and culture as well as cheap and tasty eats. Haggle with local vendors and nosh on street food in the suburbs of Deira. Explore al-Fahidi, a preserved cultural area that dates to the early 1900s. Wander through the souks selling precious trinkets from Iran and silver treasures from Oman. Then ride through the desert on a 4WD safari or dine Bedouin-style under a tent.
