Once this city of desert (Dubai) started its journey having inhabitants along the water bodies it had. Business centers grew beside these water bodies and eventually transformed it into a city of gold. These old buildings beside Dubai creek in Bur-Dubai area seem to portray the history of transformation.

Location: Dubai Creek, Bur-Dubai, Dubai, UAE
