Bastakiya are on a Friday

Jump to last reply

Hello. I'm going to Dubai for a couple of days for work and I was thinking of spending an extra day to do some sightseeing. However, that will be a Friday. I was really interested in doing the Jumeirah Mosque tour, attending the cultural breakfast/ lunch at the SMCCU, and joining one of their Bastakiya tours; but Friday being the holy day, those activities will not be available. Any suggestions on alternative activities for a similar experience? Should I just wander around the Bastakiya area and ride the abra on my own?

Looking forward to the usual helpful advice. Thanks in advance. BTW, I will be staying near the airport and don't speak the language.
