Overview

Travel back to the days before Dubai was dominated by cutting-edge skyscrapers and man-made islands, and discover the Al Fahidi Historical District, site of the last remaining wind-tower houses.

Meet at the Sheikh Mohammed Center for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU) wind-tower house. Experience traditional Emirati hospitality, before strolling through the district with your seasoned guide. Learn about the architecture and history of Dubai's Creek settlement buildings.

Continue to the Ruler's Court Mosque (only open to guests of the SMCCU) for a short discussion about the mosque as a part of Emirati life. Return to the SMCCU wind-tower house for Arabic coffee and dates.

Throughout the tour, ask any question you have about life in the city; no question is off limits! Learn about the center’s award-winning programs, and hear about their philosophy, “Open Doors. Open Minds.” The SMCCU strives to raise awareness and demystify the local culture, customs, and religion of the United Arab Emirates, improving cross-cultural understanding and communication between locals and guests.
