What to see

Heritage Village
Shindagha Village

Since it’s opening in 1997, The Heritage Village has become a national treasure. It represents the components of wild, marine, and mountain life, where the visitor can identify closely the old traditional customs of the country and the special characteristics of old houses, handicrafts, patterns, and forms of living. For a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, Heritage Village is the perfect way to enjoy the foundations of the region.

A true-to-life construction depicts the way people lived in the UAE, from architecture how they made their livelihood, with a diving museum. The village offers guests a chance to get up close with the tastes of Emirati cuisine as you watch the incredible way fresh flat bread called rigag and traditional sweets like legemat are made. You can also walk around the old houses, homes to the founders of Dubai, walk into the houses, and see how the people lived. Visitors can also enjoy performances of folklore singing and dancing such as Razfa, Ayyala, Harbeya and El-Dan, in addition to the dances added to the local heritage that came to the region through the commercial relations with Africa, among which are Lewa, Andemi and Haban.

The village also hosts a traditional medicine clinic during the tourist season between March and October. Patients are treated by traditional medicine doctors who have inherited a legacy of great experience and expertise in the methods of traditional medicine, such as branding, bone-setting and various treatments with herbs! Call 04-5155000.
