What you'll do

We will meet you at Burjuman metro station and take you to Bastakiya. Built on the shores of Dubai's historic creek, Bastakiya is a heritage hub on the Bur Dubai side of the Dubai Creek that dates from the 1890s, where residents originally earned money from pearl diving. We'll click your pictures in historic alleys here. Then we'll take you to the Coffee Museum. The museum is over 2 floors, with a number of coffee machines and equipment displayed along with plenty of information about coffee beans and the evolution of coffee. It showcases various artifacts, ceramics and brass from different eras and parts of the world associated with coffee. From ancient to modern grinders, dispensers and coffee sets, the museum not only gives patrons a historic view of how the coffee industry has evolved over time, it also has all of the coffee beans in the planet on display. Next, we'll take you to XVA Gallery which specialises in contemporary works from established and emerging artists from the Arab world, India, and Iran. It was established in 2003 and has been championing contemporary Middle Eastern art in Dubai and on the international art scene. We will click your pictures at the gallery also and take you on Bastakiya tour. We will mail 20 professional pictures of your tour within 3 days.
