Travels with DAI
The Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah (DAI) organises an average of two cultural expeditions each year. Open to the Friends of the DAI, one trip is generally based in the region and the other farther afield.
Regardless of the destination, there are certain constants that make DAI adventures special. DAI overseas trips are renowned for being well organised, with accommodation, transportation, meals, and guides all pre-arranged. Guides are always genial, well versed on their subjects and include in their talks a good mix of facts, history and legend.
During Season 19 we were very fortunate to be able to organise a trip to the archaeological sites of Ancient Saudi Arabia. An account of this trip by Tarif El Hoss with photographic contributions from members of the group can be read by clicking here.
