Sharjah Tourism Travel Quiz

Immerse in local culture and experience life as part of an Emirati family at this wonderful farm, while enjoying the peace of the dunes and the sunset

A visit to this family-owned farm offers a highly personal insight into Emirati culture, curiosities and traditions. Jamile Haikal welcomes guests into her home to enjoy a communal meal and chat about local life, including marriage, dress and of course, food.

The three-hour experience starts at 5pm and includes Arabic coffee and dates, henna painting and an Arabic feast served in a traditional majlis. It’s a very authentic experience, with the opportunity to ask plenty of questions.
