My favourite Emirates heritage event is on from now through to 30th December. So much to see, do, enjoy. Hook up with a local guide at the souq and chances are you will be invited to one of the many camps for lunch/dinner/hospitality – I had two most enjoyable meals today at different camps, there IS such a thing as a free lunch! (Well here, anyway)
