The Dubai Heritage Village Reviews
although i used to live in Dubai for few years before, i never went to the heritage village until this trip... was pleasantly surprised. felt like going back to the times the locals were living... more »
I love this area. It has a totally different vibe to the modern Dubai. Lots of souks nearby and cheap cafes. Well worth a visit. more »
Off the beaten track! It's possibly because some museums are not yet finished, but still there are already three with (quite surprisingly) outstanding print specimens. Village buildings were in an updated style of an older period, which was nice. Recommend seeing before the tourist agencies gain sight of this lovely area,
Authentic place to visit in Dubai , I enjoyed the silence and the view. There are few museums and cultural places which are closed on Friday. So it is better to go during the weekdays.
