Al Mankhool, which translated from Arabic means “area planted with palm trees,” is a district situated on the western side of Dubai, which is one of the seven emirates in the United Arab Emirates. Although Al Mankhool is largely a residential area, it has many commercial services and good hotels. It also boasts plenty of shopping malls, as is the case all over the emirate, hence the title of “the shopping capital of the world.” This emirate is a mixture of the ancient and the very modern, with the modern shopping malls and the ancient intriguing souks.
- The Dubai Museum, housed in the Al Fahidi Fort built in 1787, is situated about one kilometre from Al Mankhool, and is well worth a visit to see all the archaeological exhibits found in desert excavations.
- Visiting Dubai Souks is often the reason many tourists come to this country, and Textile Souks offering exquisite exotic fabrics are located close to Al Mankhool.
- A visit to Dubai will not be complete without a visit to the world’s tallest tower, the 800 metre Burj Khalifa, and the view from the observation deck is a spectacular experience.
