TRAVEL IS A SOURCE

OF PLEASURE

The young TV Host, Shahd Blan, loves

travel and exploration, looks for tranquility

and nature in her travels and

finds them in the countryside and popular places

... Dubai has opened for her the way to success

and fame through her work as a TV Host on MBC

Channel ... About the experience of journey and

travel, Emirates Tourism has had this interview

with her:

BY: LAMA EZZAT

INTERVIEW

I love joy and laughter

even under the worst

conditions.

Let’s begin with tourism first, tell us

about your relationship with travel?

For me, travel is a source of pleasure, an

experience that teaches independence,

adventure and learning about different cultures,

it is a lifestyle rather than luxury.

They say travel is like exploring a book

... What do you say?

Traveling is a method of learning and revival

of spirit and mind, as it enables us to

rediscover our ability to adapt to the different

conditions of life, coexist with different

customs and traditions and accept others,

as well as it establishes communication

among the nations.

What are the cities that impressed you

the most?

I read a lot about Paris and I loved it, but

when I visited it, I loved it even more, because

it has the scent of the East due to the

presence of many Arabs there. It is the city

of art and literature. I wish to visit it over

again soon, as it is one of the cities that

has left its trace in memory. I spent a long

time in it, learnt the language and memorized

its streets. I went there for treatment

Paris formed my career and was a turning point in my life.

after I had an accident and lived there

about 7 months, and no one can ever

forget its wonderful and spellbinding

nature, and I love the countryside life

where nature and calm exist, away

from the city’s offensive noise, frenetic

lifestyle and crowdedness.

What is the thing that sticks in

your memory in any country that

you visit?

In any country I visit, I am fascinated

by popular places. When I return from

any journey, I remember the simple,

popular alleys and modest people. I

like those places by nature, because

they always teach us new things, as

they are the source of customs and

traditions for the different nations ... I

also love the countryside and its tranquility,

the beauty of its landscapes,

purity of its nature, and the friendly

hearts of its people.

You do live in the UAE, specifically

Dubai, why have you chosen this

country to live in?

Frankly speaking, I have not chosen it;

but rather, it was the one that chose

me. It is the place where I was born,

studied and graduated from the American

University in Dubai, and, by nature,

I like to be always near my family

and friends... Dubai has prepared me

to learn, work and get to know the meaning

of coexistence among the different

nationalities, the preservation of rights

and freedoms ... I very much love Dubai:

The City of love and peace.

Which country do you dream of visiting?

I dream of visiting Cuba, and I have not

yet visited it, because I am afraid to go

and not to come back; as I am greatly

fond of the Latin culture, music and the

arts, the simple life they live and dancing

on the streets. It is a place full of joy and

passion for life.

I love the very rich Cuban music such as

Cha-Cha, Mambo and Rumba, the popular

music that makes me dance when

I hear it ... I am also a lover of Havana,

the city of radiant culture, which is characterized

by its splendid architectural

buildings that resemble the cities of Europe.

Each city has its own story, and your

story with Dubai has granted you

the prospects for success and fame.

Tell us about this aspect?

Of course, Dubai has gifted me with

fame, success and stardom that I never

dreamed of before.

If you were to take a tourist tour in

the UAE ... where would you go?

12

ISSUE 29 AUGUST 2017


Dubai has prepared me

to learn, work and get

to know the meaning of

coexistence,

Each Emirate has its own flavor... For me,

I’d like to go to the Northern Emirates like

Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah, in order to

get away from the noisy and crowded cities,

and escape to nature and simplicity.

Let’s move on to your media experience...

Tell us about the beginnings...

achievements?

I graduated in 2011, and then the office

of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid immediately

called me to work at Dubai TV,

where I worked first as an assistant and a

researcher for a limited salary. By then, I

did not know anything, but I started to learn

everything. One day, we were covering the

Dubai Film Festival, and by that time I was

behind the scenes. On that day, I appeared

on several shots on the camera during my

reception of guests. One week later, I got

a call from a TV producer who asked me

to do the “pilot” of a TV program as a presenter,

and immediately he chose me to

introduce a UAE tourism program titled “Al

Maw’ed - The Appointment”. We worked on

it for three seasons, the program focused

on Emirati tourism. Through the program, I

learnt about the most beautiful tourist destinations

in the UAE, and then I proceeded

forward in that domain.

To what extent has your family had an

impact on your media life?

I have been passionate since childhood,

and I have received the greatest support

from my family, my mother and everyone

around me; my relatives and friends. They

are proud of the achievement I have made

in my career.

Away from tourism ... we see you in

the recent period through the “ET Bel

Arabi – ET in Arabic” Show, how did

you find the experience after your

work as a news anchor?

News means a lot to me, as I’m constantly

following up on current news and events,

but my move to “ET Bel Arabi” was a

decision between me and the management.

Although I was the youngest

news anchor at the TV station, I decided

to take this step because I do not

see myself in 10 years on a political talk

show. I’m full of fun and I am not into

serious stuff.

Which program do you wish to

present?

I hope to present a social program that

presents values and novel ideas, tells

stories of success and ambition, and

serves as a platform for people we do

not see in our ordinary lives. We, in the

Arab World, are fans of drama by our

own nature. I think we need hope, success

stories and talents. That’s why

talent and singing programs are very

popular. The world is in need for laughter,

joy and positivity.

How do you evaluate your experience

at “ET Bel Arabi”?

I think I cannot judge this experience

now; I have not yet proven myself in

the program, since I have just finished

treatment after the bad accident I had,

and then I immediately joined the program,

as the team has already started

the program, and I joined them at the

end. I think the comeback of the new

season will be my real start, and there

are many surprises.

I have been passionate

since childhood, and

received the greatest

support from my family

ISSUE 29 AUGUST 2017


Emirati artists and Media Celebrities have diverse interests and priorities regarding

their tourist destinations, especially in the summer. Some prefer historical sights,

others natural landscapes, and a few prefer exploring uncharted territories.

Among Arab countries, Egypt is their favorite, as they are emotionally connected to its

historical attractions and even the local neighborhoods. Next comes Lebanon where all

locales embrace each other in one spot. They pointed out that although Arab countries

are almost equal in their tourist potential, each one has its unique flavor.

As for Europe, they prefer serene natural landscapes, especially in Paris and London.

However, some of them are keen on exploring Asian destinations such as China and Japan

to find out about their traditions and habits, usually reading and researching the journey

before setting sail.

LEAD STORY

| HABIB GHULOOM | ASMAHAN AL NAQBI | HESSAH

EGYPT & SYRIA ARE THE PLACES WHERE

THE HEART IS

The actor, Habib Ghuloom, despite his many

work-related travels, sets aside some time for relaxation,

even for short periods. It is a time to recharge

his batteries, run into old friends and collegues

across the world (which often happens).

However, he is not interested in exploration, he has

travelled so much that he knows the world like the

back of his hand. Now he only seeks antique cafes

where the aroma of the past lingers around him

and his friends.

He said that Syria was his favorite in the Arab region

before the conflict as it is brimming with significant

attractions such as Al-Zabadani, Damascus, and

Mount Qasioun where he used to visit cafes and

enjoy the lush scenery. He is adamant that tourism

in Syria was unparalleled across the world.

Egypt is special for Ghuloom, he lived there for five

years, longs to return, and is still in contact with

Egyptian actors who used to be his colleagues and

have become superstars. Wherever he goes, especially

Egypt, he doesn’t miss a chance to call his old

pals and set up a reunion.

He said that he visited all of Egypt’s attractions,

whether in Cairo, Alexandria, Aswan, or other

world-renowned destinations. His favorite attractions,

however are the Pyramids, the Nile Corniche,

and Old Cairo with its ancient mosques, citadels,

and cafes.

22

ISSUE 29 AUGUST 2017


تحقيق العدد

| REEM HAMDAN | SAMAR AL SHAMSI | SAEED AL MAMRY

As for Europe, Ghuloom adores the English

countryside, as he studied for his PhD in Manchester.

He is always attracted to natural landscapes

and lush open places, which are absent

in Gulf countries. He notes that Europe shines

with its virgin nature and governments there exert

efforts to protect it.

EGYPT & THE EUROPEAN COUNTRYSIDE

TV Presenter Asmahan Al Naqbi said that she

loves exploring novel and interesting places.

She is always on the lookout for something new,

preferring places that are unfamiliar for Gulf and

Arab tourists, and avoiding the popular destinations

visited by the overwhelming majority.

Generally, she is fond of the European countryside,

where nature is charmingly innocent. It

is the ultimate destination for relaxation away

from the crowdedness of traditional tourist attractions.

As for Arab countries, Al Naqbi heads without

question to Egypt, the cradle of civilization. After

all, she is half-Egyptian. That’s why she doesn’t

consider Egypt merely a tourist destination, it

is her second home where she recollects her

sweetest memories and visits her family and

friends.

LEAD STORY

PARIS, MIAMI, AND LAS VEGAS

Emirati Singer Hessah says that each

Arab country has a special taste that

draws tourists, whether through nature,

attractions, customs and habits,

or culture.

Nevertheless, she favors Egypt for

its many tourist cities and sites such

as Sharm El Sheikh, Harghada, Luxor,

Aswan, and the amazing Cairo and

Ancient places that testifies to its rich

history and culture.

Regarding Europe, Hessah prefers

Paris, Miami, and Las Vegas. The

longest trip she had was to London,

which lasted more than 2 months,

and she visited many European cities.

Moreover, she likes Asian countries like

Thailand with its gorgeos islands and

kind people, Malaysia, Indonesia, and

Sri Lanka.

SIMILAR ATMOSPHERE IN

ARAB COUNTRIES

The Emirati actress, Reem Hamdan, follows

a unique policy to decide her destinations;

she starts by researching the

place’s tourist and historical attractions by

reading and finding out about its climate,

culture, top landmarks, traditions, cuisine,

language, population and so on.

She sees that Arab countries are quite

similar with mild variations that distinguish

them from one another. Yet Egypt

is her top priority, right before Lebanon &

Morocco.

Hamdan adds that she is infatuated with

Egypt, especially the aromatic Egyptian

cuisine, the Pyramids, and even the local

population. Normal walks for her are like a

journey through history, even old cars are

there!

24

ISSUE 29 AUGUST 2017


SCENIC COUNTRIES

Artist Samar Al Shamsi says that most of

her trips are work related, but she sets aside

some time for relaxation. There must be at

least two days to roam the country and visit

its top landmarks and landscapes.

She is attracted, in the first place, to scenic

countries, luxurious hotels, and restaurants

where she is introduced to traditional meals

as a part of the local culture.

As for Arab countries, Lebanon is her favorite,

simply because it embraces diverse locales;

you could be hiking a mountain and suddenly

meet the sea, a green space, or an upscale

urban area with tremendous residences, not

to mention how amazing the Lebanese are:

well cultured, civilized, and hospitable.

She adds that she likes traveling to Egypt and

getting to know the Ancient Egyptian Civilization

about which she wrote extensively.

Furthermore, it is one of many Arab countries

with rich history, including Jordan and Morocco

among others.

As for Europe, Al Shamsi is passionate about

Italy where she studied art and architecture

for a full year at a turning point of her life. That

is why she grew so emotional about it. She

also likes Geneva with its heart-warming serenity.

EGYPTIAN LOCAL NEIGHBOURHOODS

TV Presenter Saeed Al Mamry says that he

used to love Beirut for its diversity in weather,

locales, and natural scenes, but recently political

conflits made him go there only occasionally.

He is passionate about Egypt, its

crowds and its simplicity. For him,

Egypt is all about its people and their

local neighborhoods. That’s where

he heads whenever he sets his foot

in Egypt, not in fancy hotels, but amidst

that history-old people, and he loves the food

in places like El-Hussein and El-Sayyeda Zeinab.

In short, he visits Egypt for Egypt, to

enjoy the delightful company of its people.

As for Europe, he holds a special spot in his

heart for Paris because it has a unique style

that sets it apart from other European cities,

it is rich in history and culture, and only

Arabs have visited it recently.

London is special for him as well, and for

all Gulf citizens. You rarely find someone

from the Gulf who has not been

there dozens of times because of its

otherworldly beauty.

He recently discovered some charming

spots around Munich, mostly villages

like Cocoon and Garmisch, as well

as Salzburg, Austria. What draws him

there is their green landscape, in certain

seasons you feel like the horizon has

turned into a sea of trees and roses,

truly an exceptional experience.

As for Asia, Al Mamry is not a huge

fan of Asian destinations, but currently

he would like to visit China to

see the Great Wall, and Japan to

find out the secret of its people’s

efficiency, discipline, and lifestyle.

A TASTEFUL ADVENTURE

AT TRADERS HOTEL QARYAT AL BERI

The urban-chic Afyä restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. A fabulous Abu Dhabi hotel

dining experience showcasing flavours from all over the world amid modern surroundings, this

restaurant stands out from others in the city.

Afyä’s open kitchen, which stretches nearly the entire length of the chic venue, brings together popular

dishes from around the world. Freshly prepared with the freshest of ingredients, pleasant

meals that are guaranteed to satisfy are served all day at the restaurant. Afyä offers a

healthy buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner and features an outdoor dining setting that

creates a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

FRESH & VIBRANT TEMPTATIONS

Afyä, the all-day dining restaurant at Traders Hotel Qaryat

Al Beri Abu Dhabi, invites fans of Italian cuisine to try

out the newly revamped Mamma Mia dinner concept.

Hosted every Wednesday from 7pm until 11pm, the

Mamma Mia dinner celebrates Italian gastronomy in

the casual chic setting of Afyä with a wide selection of

dishes from different regions of Italy.

Executive sous chef Shammi de Costa said:

“Italian food is always a favorite and considered

a guilty pleasure for most. The

Mamma Mia dinner was launched to

show how our kitchen is respectful of the

simplicity in Italian cooking styles. We

now focus on the use of the freshest ingredients

and incorporate local produce

where possible.”

ISSUE 29 AUGUST 2017


The Mamma Mia dinner features different

stations for stone oven-baked pizzas,

homemade pastas, appetizers and desserts.

The buffet also features a selection

of artisan breads, which goes well with the

fregula soup with clams.

In the cold foods section, guests can find

light starters like sea bream salsa verde,

beef bacon wrapped radicchio, and chicken

liver crostini.

The wide selection of mains take center

stage at the lavish dinner featuring delicacies

like eggplant Parmigiano, gnocchi,

prawns wrapped in crispy pasta and beef

lasagna. The braised leg of lamb, choice of

Italian sausages and the 1-metre pizza are

popular choices of Afyä diners that remain

on the Mamma Mia menu.

“A signature dish that we insist that our

guests must try is the 48-hour braised beef

cheek prepared in the butcher style. Another

favorite on the menu is the Devil Chicken

known for its spiciness,” Shammi said.

The grills station offers a selection of seafood

dishes like grilled squid and Sicilian tiger

prawns, while the live station puts on a show

for every homemade pasta that they cook in

front of the guests – sometimes on a Parmesan

wheel.

“We have introduced the ricotta cheese cake,

stuffed peaches and panettone to give Afyä’s

diners the real taste of Italy,” Shammi said.

To finish the meal in a true Italian way, the

Afyä kitchen leaves its guests spoilt for

choice. From a variety of gelatos to traditional

favorites like tiramisu, pannacotta and

cannoli, they have got it all.

The Cook

Islands

ISSUE 29 AUGUST 2017


South Pacific’s

Secret Paradise

A NET

of 15 islands

in the heart of the

South Pacific spread over

an area the size of India with

a population no bigger than a small

New Zealand country town, 15,000 souls.

These unique and friendly Polynesians have their

own language and government and enjoy a vigorous and

diverse culture with significant differences between each

island. Despite some 100,000 visitors a year to the capital

island – Rarotonga – the Cooks are largely unspoiled

by tourism. They offer a rare opportunity for people

from the cities of the world to experience a different

type of vacation. There are no high-rise hotels and

very little hype. Ideal for travelers seeking more

than the usual clichés associated with the South

Seas, each island has its unique qualities and

offers the visitor a special experience. Here

you find our editors’ picks of the breathtaking

Cook Islands.

SHORE TOURISM

Rarotonga

Rarotonga is the largest of the Cook Islands

and the capital, Avarua is the main

commercial and administrative center.

Locals just call it “town”. It’s also the

most commercialized of the 15 islands,

but it still retains a Polynesian charm.

The main street looks out across the

Pacific Ocean and from June to August

you can stand on the sea wall and watch

whales as they migrate to warmer waters

to breed. You won’’t find any fast

food chains like McDonalds or any of the

ubiquitous supermarket or store chains.

Instead there are palm lined roads and

friendly locals.

Aitutaki

Photographs can never convey the

breathtaking beauty that is Aitutaki.

Warm, crystal clear waters fill a triangular

shaped, turquoise blue lagoon....

so blue you’d think someone had painted

it that color! Each leg of the triangle

stretches more than 11 km (7 miles).

Dotted around it are uninhabited, palm

filled islands or “motus” with sparkling

white sand...reminiscent of the sort of

a picture a child would paint of a desert

Coral-stuffed lagoons, turquoise

waters defying believability,

island. Aitutaki is the second most

visited of the Cook Islands, and particularly

popular with honeymooners.

Tourism facilities are well developed,

but the total number of visitors

a year remains a small fraction of

those staying on the capital island,

so Aitutaki still feels very unspoiled.

Atiu

Atui is the third largest and third

most visited of the Cook Islands;

that does not mean it’s busy though...

typically there are around 50 visitors

a week. The island is about half the

size of Rarotonga. Legend says Tangaroa,

the divine god of the sea, was

the first inhabitant. Surrounding the

plateau is a ring of taro water gardens

and then the jungle-clad makatea

(fossil coral reef). Notched into the

cliffs of makatea are over 28 beaches

which, albeit small, are untouched

and almost unvisited.

Mauke

Mauke is half the size of Rarotonga in

circumference (18 km, 11.25 miles),

but it’s a world away in landscape and

lifestyle. Its central volcanic plateau is

volcanic origins mean the soil is rich and

islands.

most romantic island in the world”.

It wasn’t the model for her husband’s

famous book (that was actually published

seven years before), but the

atoll is a true Treasure Island.

Manihiki

According to many, Manihiki is the most

beautiful of the Cook Islands. 40 tiny

islets encircle a lagoon four kilometers

(2.5 miles) wide. And this completely enclosed

body of water is the source of the

island’s greatest asset...black pearls.

LONDON

is one of the world’s top tourist destinations,

attracting upward of 15 million visitors

each and every year. Britain’s capital city is a vibrant

arts and entertainment center (its theaters

are always busy), and 50 years after the Beatles,

the country’s music scene still rocks.

London also boasts one of the planet’s greatest concentrations

of cultural attractions. From royal palaces

to the people’s parliament, from Roman ruins to castles

and cathedrals, you could spend endless days exploring

London’s sites without ever running out of unique things to

see and do.

Big Ben

Nothing says “London” more emphatically

than the 97-meter tower housing the giant

clock and its resounding bell known as

Big Ben. It’s as iconic a landmark as Tower

Bridge. The tolling of Big Ben is known

throughout the world as the time signal of

BBC radio. Below it, stretching along the

Thames, are the Houses of Parliament, seat

of Britain’s government for many centuries

and once the site of the royal Westminster

Palace occupied by William the Conqueror.

Tower Bridge

Spanning the divide between the traditional

City of London and the more relaxed,

creative Bankside, London Bridge

is full of interesting attractions and surprises.

Of all the bridges over the River

Thames, London Bridge has the longest

history. It was the only bridge over London's

river until Putney Bridge opened in

1729. The famous Tower Bridge, a little

further down the Thames, is often mistakenly

called "London Bridge". However,

London Bridge does offer unparalleled

views of its pretty counterpart. The bustling

area around London Bridge is full of

hotels, bars, restaurants and attractions.

The area is also well known for the medical

services at London Bridge Hospital

and Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation

Trust.

ISSUE 29 AUGUST 2017


The London Eye

Built to mark London's millennium celebrations

in 2000, the London Eye is Europe's

largest observation wheel. Its individual

glass capsules offer the most spectacular

views of the city as you embark on a circular

tour rising 443 ft above the Thames. The

journey lasts 30-minutes, often quicker than

the time spent queuing for your turn. If you

can, reserve your time in advance. The best

option is to skip the line completely with a

London Eye: Skip-the-Line Ticket. This advance

ticket allows you to take a flight at

any time on the day you plan to visit.

Westminster Abbey

Another location with a long association with

British royalty, Westminster Abbey stands on

a site that's been associated with Christianity

since the early 7th century. Officially known

as the Collegiate Church of St Peter in Westminster,

Westminster Abbey was founded by

Edward the Confessor in 1065 as his place

of interment. From his burial in 1066 until

that of George II almost 700 years later, most

sovereigns were not only crowned here but

they were buried here too. More recently, it's

become famous as the preferred location for

Royal Weddings.

Hyde Park

Covering 350 acres, Hyde Park is London’s largest

open space and has been a destination for sightseers

since 1635. One of the park’s highlights is the

Serpentine, an 18th century man-made lake popular

for boating and swimming. Hyde Park is also

where you’ll find Speakers’ Corner, a traditional forum

for free speech (and heckling). Another Hyde

Park landmark is Apsley House, former home of

the first Duke of Wellington and purchased after

his famous victory at Waterloo. Now a museum,

it houses Wellington’s magnificent collections of

paintings, including Velázquez’s Waterseller of Seville,

along with gifts presented by grateful European

kings and emperors. England’s greatest hero is

also commemorated at the Wellington Arch.

St Paul's Cathedral

The largest and most famous of London's many churches - and

undoubtedly one of the most spectacular cathedral's in the world

- St Paul's Cathedral sits atop the site of a Roman temple. The

previous church structure was destroyed in the Great Fire of

1666, and Sir Christopher Wren designed the re-build. Today, the

twin Baroque towers and magnificent 365 ft dome of St Paul's are

a masterpiece of English architecture. If you're up to it, be sure to

walk the stairs with their spectacular views of the dome's interior,

including the Whispering Gallery.

Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens - officially called the Royal Botanic Gardens

- is situated in southwest London on the south

bank of the Thames and is a wonderful place to spend

time as you enjoy the numerous plants grown amidst

its 300-acres. Laid out in 1759, the gardens became

government property in 1841. In 1897 Queen Victoria

added Queen’s Cottage and the adjoining woodland.

A variety of tours are available free with admission,

and many musical and cultural events are held here

throughout the year.

Buckingham Palace

One of Britain's most iconic buildings, Buckingham

Palace is also the scene of London's most

popular display of pomp and circumstance,

the Changing of the Guard. Drawing crowds at

11:30am in every season, this colorful and free

display of precision marching and music also

takes place at St James's Palace where you can

follow the band along The Mall as they march between

sites.

The British Museum

Displaying one of the world’s finest

collections of antiquities, the British

Museum contains more than 13 million

artifacts from the ancient world.

With priceless objects from Assyria,

Babylonia, China, Europe, and elsewhere,

it’s hard to know where to begin.

But most tourists head first for the

museum’s most famous exhibits: the

controversial Elgin Marbles from the

Parthenon, the Rosetta Stone, the colossal

bust of Rameses II, the Egyptian

mummies, and the spectacular hoard

of 4th-century Roman silver known as

the Mildenhall Treasure.

Hampton Court Palace

Another great Thames-side attraction,

Hampton Court is one of Europe’s

most famous palaces. Its Great Hall

dates from Henry VIII’s time (two of

his six wives supposedly haunt the palace),

and it’s where Elizabeth I learned

of the defeat of the Spanish Armada.

Other interesting features include the

Clock Court with its fascinating astronomical

clock dating from 1540, the

State Apartments with their Haunted

Gallery, the Chapel, the King’s Apartments

and the Tudor tennis court.

Piccadilly Circus & Trafalgar Square

Two of London’s best-known tourist

spots, these famous squares lie not

far apart and mark the gateways to

Soho, London’s lively theater and entertainment

district. Trafalgar Square

was built to commemorate Lord Horatio

Nelson’s victory over the French

and Spanish at Trafalgar in 1805.

Nelson’s Column, a 56-meter granite

monument, overlooks the square’s

fountains and bronze reliefs, which

were cast from French cannons. Admiralty

Arch, St Martin-in-the-Fields,

and the National Gallery surround the

square.

EXHIBITIONS & FESTIVALS

13 TH LIWA DATE FESTIVAL CELEBRATES

THE SYMBOL OF EMIRATI PAST AUTHENTICITY

Held under the patronage of H.H Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister

of Presidential Affairs, the Liwa Date Festival is an annual event that was launched to assist the

exchange of technical expertise among farmers. This year’s festival continued from 19th to 29th July.

The Liwa oasis that stands like a haven of life and greenery on the edge of the Empty Quarter, is the venue of

the festival that aims to promote the cultivation of the best and finest varieties of dates. The Festival also seeks

to raise the quality of Emirati dates so as to achieve a better level of excellence and competition, locally and

internationally, while preserving the healthy natural characteristic.

A CELEBRATION OF THE DESERT FRUIT

The 34,000-square-metre festival space is a free-flowing

area from the traditional market at one end to the

entertainment and award ceremony stage at the other.

In between, several private and government companies

operating in the fields of dates, agriculture, heritage and

environment are exhibiting their products, handicrafts,

services and artistry. At the heart of it all, is the Best Dates

competition arena where, over the next 10 days, some

6,000 baskets of dates are expected to be judged for their

taste, size, look, color and, of course, health.

It all started with Etheg and Dabbas, the first two date categories

to compete. Behind closed doors, local farmers were

bringing basket after basket of Dabbas dates and trolley after

trolley of freshly cut massive branches of dates, known as

Etheg in Arabic.

The top 15 Etheg winners were revealed at 8pm on the first

day of the festival. All 30 branches of dates submitted to the

Etheg competition were weighed and the farmer who brought

the heaviest of them took home the desired title. A 106.5-kilogram

Etheg of Shahal variety was crowned the winner.

42

ISSUE 29 AUGUST 2017


As in previous years, the UAE’s most popular varieties of

dates will be part of the Best Dates competitions, including

Khallas, Farth, Kunaizi, Bou Maan and Shishi. Also as in previous

years, the dates’ submissions took place in one evening,

while the judging and awarding took place the following day.

Most of the 233 prizes sharing a total of Dh5.2 million are for

the Best Dates categories of the competition, awarding up to

15 of the best entries in each category.

Date palm farming is still a lucrative business, particularly

since date palm owners receive full support from the local

government. Apart from the festival’s prize awards, farmers

received support from the Abu Dhabi Farmers Services Centre,

Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, and Al Foah Company,

which bought all the dates from farmers, not just from the

winners, but all the farmers who wished to sell.

TRADITIONAL MARKET

One of the key highlights of the Liwa Date Festival is the Traditional

Market. It sheds light on Emirati heritage and reinforces

the cultural legacy the Emirati ancestors bequeathed

to their sons and daughters.

The Liwa Date Festival has gained considerable attention

and recognition on account of its increasing role in tourism

and economy, and its role in linking the local date and palm

tree handicrafts to tourism and economy.

The visitor of Liwa and its festival finds in the market a model of

the flourishing oasis decorated with meticulously-woven palm

leaves. There, he has a chance to discover all products made

of date palm, in addition to date sweets, and Jumar (the milkywhite

inner part of the tree heart). The visitor can also have a

close look at every aspect that is related to the daily life of the

Bedouin family and the different crafts, such as Al Sadu (a traditional

form of weaving).

The visitor of the Traditional Market had grasped Emirati

women’s vital role in the deep-rooted Bedouin economy. From

their mothers and grand-mothers, women inherit the efficient

techniques needed to use these riches and preserve them for

post-harvest times. The market showed its visitors the solidarity

between the members of Bedouin families and let them

notice the constant subsistence of tribal unity. The Traditional

Market is a continuous local festival in itself. It is, indeed, a

perfect platform to share expertise and reproduce entrenched

heritage for the benefit of future generations.
