Although not generally open to the public unless you book a tour in advance, this beautiful mosque is one of Dubai’s best-known and loved landmarks. The hour-long tours are on Sat, Sun, Tues and Thurs at 10am prompt. Afterwards there is a question and answer period with the expert guides who show you around. No shorts or sleeveless tops permitted, shoes must be removed and women must cover their heads. Luckily cameras are allowed so visitors can capture the delicate Islamic decoration.
