We visited the UAE Heritage Village located in Abu Dhabi.

The UAE Heritage Village is a reconstruction of a traditional oasis, which allows visitors a glimpse of the local’s way of life in the past.

A camel ride can be tried.

There was a restaurant where you can try arabic dishes.

And there was also a handicraft store where some craftsmen demostrate traditional skills such as metal work and pottery, while women show weaving and spinning. (visitabudhabi.ae)

It was a fun way to study this foreign land’s history.

  1. Very interesting. I would love to visit the hadicraft shop but I will avoid the camel ride 🙂

    • I didn’t try the camel ride too. Dad said I’m still too small for it.
      The handicraft store was fun but I didn’t get any pictures from inside 😦
      Thanks for the visit 🙂

  2. You have certainly taking in some fabulous sites. The handicraft store sounds like fun. 🙂

    • My family went on a road trip around Abu Dhabi City last weekend and we visited some important landmarks.
      Yup, the handicraft store was really cool but I’m so sorry I couldn’t get pictures from inside. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
