Culture is always more fascinating.
If the modern of this city is too much for you, I strongly suggest don?t miss a nice walk towards the Gold Souk. This was absolutely the best part of Dubai. Colors are not very brilliant but make an incredible frame: no expensive dresses and bags, only men are working and living their regular life. You probably will forget you are in a stylish place and you will breath just culture. I remember it was the first time we really had the feeling to be in the Middle East.
