There is also something for the fans of India’s favorite sport. Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium is one of the finest stadiums in the world that has hosted many famous matches. You can play some cricket facing off against a bowling machine in a box cricket set-up.
There is something for the foodies as well. There are food stalls from local restaurants, but the biggest treat is the exotic cuisine prepared by Chef Khulood, the famous Emirati chef. She will be conducting a masterclass to prepare Arabic dishes and you can try the delicious food she prepares for free.
