Heritage Village is an interesting place with a small museum (that has models of boats, manuscripts, ornaments, ceramic works, outfits etc) a recreation of a traditional mosque, shops, a restaurant, traditional wind-towers that are symbolic of the region's architecture. A good place to acquaint oneself with the region's culture.

The village is an open air souvenir and cultural shops. Prices are affordable and reasonable. For some reason all tours go here. The place is always full of tourist and shoppers.

Wasn't exactly what I expected. Definitely a place to visit. I've learned a lot from it, and the small shops are a good source of souvenirs - just bit pricey.

It was very hot the day we went so we didn't stay long, but there's not a whole lot to it besides a tomb, a nice breakwater, a local woman's bazaar, and a few animals. It's just average overall compared... More

On the day we visited it was very very hot. it was also Ramadan so it was very quiet. Interesting place with some museum like attractions. It gives a glimpse of the culture of UAE and some good views across to the city. If you are into history, culture etc its worth the visit. We didnt end up paying but... More
