Enjoy authentic Arabic coffee and snacks, while hearing the stories of times gone-by from your Emirati host, who imparts insider knowledge about this centuries-old tradition and once-thriving industry of Emirati’s rich heritage. To conclude this unique indigenous experience, you’ll observe the art of opening an oyster to reveal the prized pearl inside, which is yours to take home as a special memento of this unforgettable cultural journey.
