Dusit Princess Dubai aims to beat the heat with traditionally Thai summer activities

Dubai, June 2011 – With temperatures soaring during the Dubai summer and residents remaining mostly indoors for the next few months, the Dusit Princess City Centre Dubai has come up with a series of workshops designed to keep residents entertained throughout the months of July, August and beyond.

One of the classes that the Dusit Princess will be running will be in the art of garland making every Monday at 3 pm. The price of Dhs 49 includes a herbal refreshment and participants get to take their own garland home.  The art of Phuang Malai, or garland making, was originally a craft practised by women in the palace and now forms part of everyday life in Thailand.  They are used in offerings to Buddha images, worn by the bride and groom or simply given as a gesture of welcome and good luck.

The hotel will also be running classes in the art of vegetable and fruit carving. Fruit and vegetable carving is considered one of the ten traditional Thai crafts which was once the preserve of chefs preparing banquets for royalty but is now practised in many kitchens across Thailand. Classes take place every Wednesday at a cost of Dhs 49 and participants get to take their carving home.

And for food lovers the Thai cooking classes will take place on Fridays at 3 pm. These classes include a recipe sheet, herbal refreshment and participants get to enjoy their own Thai meal for just Dhs 79.
