Halal school trip to Dubai

Halsbury Sticker

A school trip to Dubai offers your students the opportunity to explore one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world!

Dubai is famous for its incredible modern landmarks, such as the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al Arab and the Palm Islands. But the older city also has some incredible experiences awaiting your students. They’ll love exploring souks and discovering traditional houses.

They’ll have the chance to experience the Bedouin’s nomadic life in the desert and they’ll learn more about how the Bedouin culture has influenced modern Emirati culture.

You’ll board a traditional dhow for a cruise around Dubai Marina, complete with Arabian food and entertainment. And you’ll visit a local camel’s milk producer, to learn more about this staple food and how it produced. Your students will leave Dubai with a better understanding of Emirati culture and a better understanding of the world around them.
