East Coast Discovery Tour

timings: 8.15 – 17.30

Via Al Dhaid, the center of plantations in the UAE, Expats Explore will bring you to the Friday Market. Stroll around stalls full of local products such as clay pots, carpets and fruits, indulging in the real taste of the Middle East. After a scenic drive through the spectacular Hajar Mountains we arrive at the Indian Ocean where we enjoy a lunch and maybe a relaxing swim in the balmy ocean. From there we visit the unique Al Bidiya Mosque, which is the smallest and oldest Mosque in the entire UAE.

By the time you start to long for a cup of coffee, we’ll visit a local family in Khorfakkan, giving you a lifelong memory of the hospitality of the regions people. Emirati women will welcome you with coffee, sweets and open hearts, happy to answer any questions you may have about their fascinating lives.
