About
The people of the United Arab Emirates have seen dramatic change over the last few years, change that has provided them with all the benefits of a modern, developed society. At the same time, however, both the government and the people are determined that their heritage shall be preserved, in line with the late Sheikh Zayed’s belief that ‘a people that knows not its past can have neither a present nor a future’. To act as repositories of this heritage and a source of information for both visitors and the younger generation who have not experienced a traditional lifestyle, museums and heritage centers have been developed throughout the UAE.

I been in Arabian Tea house Bastakiya 4 years ago a few times for special occasion and afternoon tea. The place was smaller and not that busy In such a unique location. And then I started to see all my friends, colleagues taking pictures there...and I couldn’t believe that it’s the same place...such a great improvement! Was excited to visit again, and have a nostalgia...it was absolutely pleasure. Atmosphere, food (ayran 🤤), guys are super friendly. I wish to visit u again and again (_jam_and_honey_)More
