The Heritage Village that Doesn’t Have Much Heritage

The Heritage Village in Abu Dhabi is something you might expect that has a lot of heritage for you to be acquainted much about the United Arab Emirates. It failed to impress me. However, I’m not that wholly disappointed at all. The beachside where people go to see the city’s panoramic skyline saved me from further disappointment about the place.

First of all, this is supposed to be a village full of heritage but it seemed short of what they’re supposed to be.

It’s a tiny village, so don’t expect too much.

Well, it shows a bit of what UAE was like before oil was discovered.

But, the displays are nothing but lack authenticity. Or at least, culture. The village has a souq, a fort and a mosque—three iconic stereotypes of Middle Eastern countries.

The souqs are full of cheap handicraft souvenirs but nothing caught my eyes. It could have been better if they had real artisans working their stuff under those thatched bazaars.

They’ve got caged camels, too. And a tiny museum.

The best thing about visiting this place is the scenic view of the cosmopolitan city.

The sunset view here is breathtakingly amazing. You’d forget quickly that you’re in a walled area of the Heritage Village.

You can also catch a better view of the sunset across the gate of the Village.

I’m not saying it’s not worth visiting. What I’m saying is that it’s an ok place to kill your time while in the city. 😀
