Al Fahidi Historical District is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai and the last wind tower quarter left on the Arab side of the Gulf.
Sophisticated houses with rough walls shielding the privacy of the wealthy families within became a trademark of the Al Fahidi Historical District area. Wind towers topped these walls, trapping the wind and funnelling it down into the house as an effective form of early air conditioning. Inner courtyards, shady and highly decorated, provided a sharp contrast to this outer impenetrability. Wandering around Al Fahidi Historical District, itâ€™s easy to transport yourself back to a bygone era. These old buildings have been converted into shady cafÃ©s, art galleries and quirky little shops â€“ making Al Fahidi Historical District the perfect place to while away a few hours.
