Little Majlis

Little Majlis is a homegrown United Arab Emirates based brand conceived as a result of the limited opportunities for customers to find unique products and genuinely made in the UAE items, particularly for tourists and local gifting.

At Little Majlis we want people around the globe to get a true taste of the UAE that we love and know so well. Little Majlis is about bringing people together, and telling the story of the region we call home.

Socks Apart

We don’t believe in logic. We can hardly follow the rules. We are even bad in math (you might get a ridiculous discount). We try, we fail, we laugh, we try again, blessed if we succeed, in that order. You are not the only ones laughing at us, we are laughing at ourselves too. Contrary to what we’ve been taught, we consider these our strengths. Flying kick, sir.

Why Go-Lokal?

We should support our local market (local products & local brands) by empowering people within the UAE to do business with local companies and local entrepreneurs that are based and operate from within the UAE.

By connecting the local community we aspire to support the local economy, making its unique brands better known, and create awareness for authentic tour experiences. Go-Lokal gives you access to all hidden gems the UAE has to offer.

Lokal of the month

Mleiha

Mleiha, a UNESCO-nominated World Heritage Site in the Central Region of the Sharjah map, is home to a number of significant sites, including Bronze Age tombs and pre-Islamic forts. Fascinating artifacts and fossils were discovered here, including pottery, iron tools and camel skeletons. The Mleiha Archaeological Centre, which opened in 2016, houses these discoveries and even more artifacts that uncover ancient UAE history.

The centre also offers a range of tours and activities. You can explore the archaeological sites or venture into the sand dunes with a desert safari. Alternatively, you can also try other desert adventures like riding a quad bike or dune buggy over the sand. If you prefer to go on foot, consider trekking to Camel Rock for an expansive view of the desert. The surrounding area is a beautiful location for a desert camp on soft dunes and under glittering night stars.
