The new Travel Through Our Traditions tour series returns on Saturday, 13th January, with a journey through Al Ain exploring the ancient traditions of camel convoys, and the rearing and breeding practices on local camel farms.
Beginning at Al Ain National Museum, the tour will run from 9am to 3pm and will take visitors across various camel farms in the city. Visitors will have the chance to learn more about the rich history behind camel rearing, breeding and camel convoys as they feature in Emirati culture and heritage. Camels were famously used for travel, trading, and as a source for leather, milk and meat.
Hosted by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT) at Al Ain National Museum, Travel Through Our Traditions will return for its third and final installments for 2018 on 17th February.
Aiming to preserve customs and traditions for future generations, the DCT supports UNESCO’s efforts by organising educational activities which showcase the rich heritage of the Emirate and educate the wider community about the importance of World Heritage sites.
