Situated in Deira, the Al Ahmadiya School will take you back in time to an era when schooling was new to Dubai. It is the first national, semi-regular school in the emirate. Founded by the late Sheikh Ahmed bin Dalmouk and established in the year 1912, this school used to attract eminent scholars from the Arab world who wanted to teach the budding minds of the emirate. Fully operational till 1958, the school premises were then shifted to a bigger area due to the increase in the number of students. This old building has now been converted into a historical museum since 1994.

The minute you land in Dubai, it will be hard for you to escape the views of the mammoth Burj Khalifa!

And if you are not interested in shelling out AED 140+ to reach the 124th and 125th floor of the building, just head over to the Dubai Fountain instead. Why? Because the real challenge is in trying to capture the Burj Khalifa in one single photograph, on your phone camera, while standing near the fountain! All the best!
