STUDY CULTURAL & HERITAGE TOURS

Though the UAE's identity is one of a technologically advanced country, the sense of tradition and culture is all-pervading. The emirate's cultural heritage comes from its desert living people and today’s visitors can still experience desert life through a range of organized trips in a comfortable four-wheel drive vehicle or better still, on a camel! A night spent under the clear desert skies with twinkling stars is still considered one of the most memorable experiences of a visit to the UAE.We conduct guided and walking tours around the city that give you a glimpse into how the city has evolved into what it is today – and where it is going in the future. Our walking tours take you on a journey of Dubai’s cultural past with the Bastakiya Heritage Walk; the Jumeirah Mosque Tour and the Sheikh Zayed Mosque Tour. Check into The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding which organizes activities aimed at breaking the cultural barriers between people of different nationalities.

We are experts at bringing you a slice of Arabic culture with Spoken Arabic courses, UAE Culture & Dubai Orientation courses, walking tours and special activities for children.

Our study, cultural and heritage tours take you through fishing harbours or fish souqs, boat-building yards, falconry centres, gold souqs, spice souqs and other venues. Throughout the year various cultural events (exhibitions, theatrical displays, sporting events, lectures etc.) are organized by different bodies such as the Emirates Heritage Club which runs dhow races, longboat races, camel races, and a host of other activities, that showcase UAE’s heritage and culture. The Cultural Centre in Abu Dhabi also holds a number of events, and is a good source of information about developments on the cultural front in the UAE.

DUBAI SHOPPING FESTIVAL

The Dubai shopping festival is the ultimate shopping bonanza in the world. With huge gifts such as luxury cars, cash prizes and gold on offer – Dubai offers the best deals on designer goods, local labels, artifacts, furnishings and furniture. Apart from the vast choice, the tax free bill that the credit card machine spews out at the end of your shopping spree will leave you smiling. Dubai usually has two shopping festivals – once during January-February and another one that runs in the holy month of Ramadan. The shopping festival that runs during Ramadan (Ramadan varies according to the lunar cycle, but typically it falls between August-October) has the best deals.

Though the Dubai Shopping Festival was first started in February 1996 by the Dubai government as a retail event aimed to promote trade, it has now morphed into a gigantic shopping, entertainment, and cultural extravaganza that now draws in millions of tourists into Dubai. During the festival, Dubai's glitzy Malls are decorated with tinsel and sparkle with fairy-lights. The streets are also transformed with street performers, acrobats, clowns, magicians and fun-fairs! The parks in the emirate also come alive with cable-car rides, Dubai Creek Tours, remote-controlled boats, helicopter tours and a number of other attractions and rides for children.
