Continue in the direction of Dubai Creek towards Al Musallah Road to reach Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU). With the aim of offering visitors a greater understanding of local culture and traditions, SMCCU is often the first port of call for most visitors. The centre offers a wealth of information and also hosts a full schedule of activities. Sign up for a traditional Emirati breakfast, lunch or dinner, or simply wander around and admire the venue, which is located in a carefully restored wind tower house.
Turn left to follow the sandy lane buttressing the simple but elegant Diwan Mosque, part of the Ruler’s Court complex and stop by XVA Art Hotel. The Instagram-worthy space features a stunning courtyard and contemporary art gallery as well as a popular vegetarian cafe.
