Oh I am SO GLAD you got to go to the historic bits!! The area around the Creek is totally my favourite part of Dubai and the spice souk is my idea of heaven. Crossing the creek with the locals is the perfect antidote to the beachfront hotels. I think Logan TOTALLY works the sheik look - all he needs now is a small oil-prpducing fiefdom to rule over ;) And OMG I swear that is the same shop where my friend was trying on traditional outfits!

That's fascinating that you couldn't find much local food! It's good to see the more local/traditional parts of Dubai since it doesn't seem t highlighted as much in most travel media.

Jeanne, we are too! The historic area was so different than the shiny new parts. I wanted to try to talk Logan into buying the sheik outfit... I was able to convince him to buy a jabal lenga in India, but that's as close as I got!

Terri, we did a lot of research and even locals were bemoaning the lack of Emirati food! And the traditional parts are very nice, but perhaps not as moneymaking as the big hotels...
