A fine example of early 20th-century architecture, the Bait Al Wakeel was the first building in Dubai dedicated exclusively to administration. This early office building is worth a visit to check out the primitive facilities that Dubai's bureaucracy had to contend with. Dubai is a port city and this comes across clearly at Bait Al Wakeel, which is now home to a museum that offers an educational window into Dubai's fishing and maritime traditions. It also houses a fine heritage restaurant which is worth a visit.
