Overview

Highlights

  • Explore traditional courtyard homes in the oldest part of Dubai and see how Emiratis used to live
  • Find out who the up-and-coming artists are, and see their work at two hotspots in the local arts and culture scene
  • Learn about Islamic culture and take a heritage tour with a guide – you'll be an expert on Dubai's history before you know it

Description

Once you've emptied the malls with a shopping expedition, caught too much desert sun, and feasted on 5-star cuisine, it's time for a real taste of Emirati culture. The Majlis Gallery, Women's Museum, and Sheikh Mohammed Centre of Cultural Understanding have everything you need to sheik things up.

Leave the tourists behind and sink your sandals into some proper desert history. This tour will take you beneath the glitzy modern trappings, deep into Dubai's authentic culture.

Starting in Al Bastakyia, the oldest district in Dubai, poke your nose into the city's traditional courtyard houses. You might be surprised to see how they dealt with air-conditioning way before the modern units were invented!

Next up, get the lowdown on the Emirati arts and culture scene. The Majlis Gallery & XVA Art Gallery Hotel & café are both now home to the works of international artists, and you might see some creative souls at work inside, too.

At the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, a heritage tour will lift the lid on decades of Emirati traditions, and there's a lot to learn about Islamic life at the Cultural Center.

A must for those who want to see the real Dubai.
