Taking part in learning activities while on holiday allows you to educate yourself in the particular place’s culture, religion, and history. This insight gives you a better understanding of your surroundings and the local people who call the city you are visiting their home.
Dubai is the perfect place to take part in a number of learning activities, as the cosmopolitan city is home to a fascinating history, a number of cultures, traditions and religions.
If you’re planning your next holiday to Dubai, here are three ways you can learn more about the luxurious city:
The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding is a non-profit organisation that aims to bring more awareness and understanding between the number of cultures and nationalities that live in Dubai.
Dubai is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, with a large portion of the population being made up of expats who have relocated to the city, and the SMCCU functions to remove any kind of barrier between people of different nationalities as well as educate those who want to learn about the local culture customs and religion.
Through a number of amazing experiences that both travellers and locals can take part in – some of which include Cultural Meals and Heritage Tours – SMCCU is working on bridging the gap between the many nationalities who live and visit the city every year.
The first of its kind in the world, Bollywood™ PARKS DUBAI is home to five zones that offer different experiences, attractions and environments that are inspired by the greatest Bollywood blockbuster.
Bollywood Boulevard greets visitors with bright cafes and live entertainment, and Mumbai Chowk offers the perfect opportunity to walk up and down the streets of “Mumbai”, indulge in a number of its famous foods, and the chance to join the mafia boss, Don, in an exciting chase through the streets.
The other three zones consist of the Rustic Ravine, where the spirit of rural India comes to life, the Royal Plaza, which is home to the region’s first Broadway-style Bollywood musical, and the Bollywood Film Studios Featuring Hall of Heroes where visitors can create their very own blockbuster!
Go back in time by visiting the Dubai Museum, which is the oldest existing building in the city built in 1787.
Presenting the traditional way of life in the Emirate of Dubai, once inside visitors can explore the many galleries spread out throughout the museum. The galleries display the general culture of the land, a number of local antiquities, and a wide selection of artefacts from African and Asian countries that traded with Dubai.
What’s more, the museum also includes a number of dioramas that show life in Dubai before the discovery of oil.
Make your next holiday a learning experience and go home with new knowledge and a new outlook of Dubai by adding one or more of the cultural experiences mentioned in our guide.
