If you want to see how the city evolved, then this is a place you must visit. You will how the amount of work that has gone into transforming the city to become what it is today.

An assembly of huts with souvenir stalls and some exhibits and craftsmen showing how to perform their trade, rather a disappointing affair, somewhat mellowed by its waterfront location with nice views of the building silhouettes across the water.

In my opinion it was lacking in historical information and lacking in flow or structure. Individually there was a lot of cool stuff but not a ton of explanations of time periods. It also could do a better job of "Taking you on a journey"...More

This village shows a slice of life on how it used to be. The government subsidises the tradesmen to ensure the old way of handicrafts continue. Spend about 20-30 minutes here. The people are friendly. The beach looking back to the city offers a spectacular...More

If only given one choice, which place is more worth visiting, Qasr Al Hosn or Heritage Village?

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. :)
