Dubai Frame Features 3D Show of Souk Al Ras

There’s more to the Dubai Frame than being an eye-catching backdrop for photos. Visitors can take an elevator to the top of the frame, which actually houses an Old Dubai Gallery.

Inside the gallery, visitors can expect a multi-sensory experience featuring:

  • The transformation of Dubai, from a fishing village to a modern city
  • 3D projections and special effects showcasing the emirate’s history
  • A recreation of Al Ras and its famous traditional markets (souks)

Al Ras is the westernmost locality in Deira, bordering Al Dhagya and Al Buteen to the east, and Dubai Creek to the west and south. It literally translates to “the cape,” and is one of the most historic communities in the area — an essential part of what we call “Old Dubai.”

Aside from its narrow streets meandering through restored Emirati-style houses and museums, Al Ras includes several important landmarks, such as Al Ras Hotel, Dubai Central Public Library, Dubai Gold Souk, Dubai Spice Souk, and St. George Hotel.

Check out this video of Al Ras shared by Dubai Frame on Instagram:

Of course, if there’s an Old Dubai Gallery… the Dubai Frame also has a Future Dubai Gallery. Here, visitors can pass through a swirling tunnel that uses audio and visual affects to highlight the city’s futuristic themes.
