Exploring Dubai’s Heritage: A Thrilling ride through UAE Culture

by Dubaiforum

Dubai is known for its glitzy modernity, but hidden within its historic Al Fahidi Historical District lies a treasure trove of culture waiting to be explored. For those looking to delve into the rich heritage of the UAE in a more comfortable way, the Heritage Express offers a unique solution.

Partnering with the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Culture of Understanding (SMCCU), the Heritage Express provides visitors and residents with an immersive cultural experience onboard a charming trolley tour. Led by Emirati Cultural Ambassadors, guests are taken on a journey past Dubai’s most significant cultural landmarks, all while listening to traditional songs and stories passed down through generations.

The experience begins at the SMCCU, where guests meet their knowledgeable Emirati Cultural Ambassador guide. From there, the tour includes feeding camels, learning about Bedouin life in a traditional tent, and finally boarding the Heritage Express – a vintage-inspired bus complete with arched windows and embroidered cushions.

The trolley tour winds through Old Dubai, passing by Al Seef, Al Fahidi Fort, and Jumeirah Mosque, among other important sites. Along the way, guests have the opportunity to engage with their guide, asking questions about local customs and culture.

The tour culminates with a delicious lunch at the SMCCU courtyard, where guests can partake in an open discussion with their Emirati hosts. The Emirati Hospitality Experience is available daily for Dhs250 per person, offering a unique way to connect with the rich cultural tapestry of Dubai.

For those looking for a more immersive cultural experience, the Emirati Cultural Iftar Experience is also available until April 6, featuring a shorter bus tour, a visit to Diwan Mosque, and an iftar inside the SMCCU.

Whether you’re a visitor or a resident, the Heritage Express offers a fascinating way to explore and understand the diverse cultural landscape of Dubai. Book your spot today for an enriching journey through the heart of the UAE.
