First time We had visited and it was fabulous. The village is just as I would expect old Abu Dhabi to be, I would definitely go back and would recommend anyone to visit, you won't be disappointed.

This is a very small and unimpressive site which doesn't deserve the name of a village. Most of the craft sites were closed, there was little signage and virtually no explanations of anything. However you do get a good view of the skyscrapers in downtown Abu Dhabi

The place was quite empty for a heritage village. Perhaps it was the timing of my visit. I would have expected more but nevertheless, drop by if you are in the area. I would certainly hope the management of this Heritage Village would consider further improvements to beef up the place. In any case, if you visit, try to get... More

The heritage village is a pretty enough reconstruction of a traditional village, there are some interesting shops and great views of the city. However the sight of this poor bull standing unable to move in the heat with its legs tied together ruined it for me and left me upset. There is absolutely no need for it as due to... More

A genuine authentic traditionally conceived place. Built on a lovely turquoise beach and with surprising domesticated ducks a that will move around happily and camels. It is a must-see and visit. Their restaurant caters its guests with their tastiest healthy middle eastern cuisine!

It's nice place to visit, but honestly it's not so much informative. It's pretty small and little things to see, but as long as here in UAE there are not so many traditional places, so at list you can visit this.

This is a lovely glimpse into the past, the history of Abu Dhabi. You can see a "traditional souq" a camel, a falcon and the knife-maker. There is also a nice restaurant overlooking the waterfront.
