A simple representation of how life used to be in Abu Dhabi with basic dwellings rebuilt to show you how people lived in the desert with only the most basic amenities.

Have nice shops you can visit to see old local traditions. Nice beach front to relax and appreciate the view. Other than that not much to do really

Visited this place once or twice. It has a touch of UAE history and how the old life looks like. Like it and would repeat the visit again.

A mix of outlets and historical arts and crafts. Provides a glimpse of how far the city has come since its historic beginnings. Interesting but be aware of camel and horse smells

Probably the only spot in Abu Dhabi where you can see how the place looked like many years ago. You can make nice pictures and enjoy the view to the city skyline. It's only five minutes to walk from Marina mall. Best of all, it is completely free.

After a long walk at Corniche Breakwater, surprisingly we found this place! Heritage Village is just a small village exhibiting various traditional handicrafts like leather, glass, metals, clay pots, clothings and museum. There's a place along seaside where you can breathe nice breeze and have nice photos! A good drop by!
