Visited this place only for the purpose of introduction to near by places to see. Not much to expect. Most of the kiosks or stalls were closed. Lunch is available fully arabic but not really wow. Okay if you are taking your family with you....More

One of the best place and tourist attractions to understand local Emirati culture, heritage and history. Also best spot for taking magnificent photos of Abu Dhabi skyline!

Our Big Bus (hop-on, hop-off) stopped at the Heritage Village. There are a number of rooms and arcades to visit, but nothing really stands out as exceptional. The Fort in Dubai is far more impressive. I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to visit...More

Visited on a tour and although ok not really worth the stop. So much more could have been done to enhance the experience. Was sad to see the camels all caged up.

This was a quick stop to view a small museum inside the village, and take a look at the vendors on site selling local crafts. The view at the beach area over the waterfront of many of the city's iconic buildings was lovely.

Most of the crafts and costumes are not seen as you drive around the Emirates anymore, so this is a nice and easy stop to see potters, leather and wood workers, as well as camel farmers--at least those who impersonate those former craftsmen. It only...More

Today, UAE is a very wealthy country and its citizens live quite lavishly. This site shows you how Emiratis lived before oil changed lives for these people only 40ish years ago. It's a little too constructed, but it's basically a museum for you to walk...More

I would do a trip to Qasr Al Hosn... its in the heart of town and has a lot to offer. You could always do the Heritage Village in the evening. The village is interesting, but the Qasr has more to offer.
Hello, I've seen a picture where you were rode a camila, is it for rent? I want to go with my 5 years old son and it should be interesting. :)
