Visit Dubai Heritage Village
Almost all emirates have their heritage village, a tourist place usually created from scratch to provide an overview of the UAE culture to visitors passing through. It includes the unavoidable dromedary, workshops representing the trades of the past, traditional homes and shops selling local crafts.
In the evening, especially during national holidays, the village can become a very lively place where tourists and locals rub shoulders.
Schedules and practical information for the visit
The village is open daily from 8.30am to 10.30pm. Free admission.
The historic village of Dubai is located on the west bank of Creek Dubai, walking along the banks, after the house of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum, at a place called Al Shindagha, sometimes referred to plans as the Heritage and Diving Village of Dubai.
