Located along the tight bend in the Creek, the Heritage Village attempts to show traditional life in the emirate of Dubai as it once was. A building with a wind tower, the old Gulf answer to air-conditioning, has been built with an explanation of how the system works.
Small houses made of mangrove and palm frond have been set up as well as stalls where locals demonstrate traditional crafts such as pottery making and metal pot making. The only trouble here is that they’re not always open, so check timings carefully. You might call ahead before you go to find out if crafts are being demonstrated because they weren’t when we were there in mid-afternoon.
You can be sure, however, that the shops, which are also within the confines of the Heritage Village, will be open for business. They offer a fairly wide collection of items, though much of what they sell is actually of Indian or Pakistani origin. The cute leather camels you see, for example, are almost always made in the Subcontinent. And the silver Bedu jewelry is mostly new, so if you’re looking for old stuff, it’s best to shop elsewhere.
Dubai golds have gained respect to the accessory world market and glad to say that they sell these stuffs with non taxable. Pretty good deal.
I guess that is the only thing, and going to the beach you can do in Dubai!!
But they are amazing.
Same for night live :o)
Dubai stands for shopping. One of the best area is the Deira district. There you can find everything you are looking for.
The number one for shopping is the Old Gold Soukh
Major attraction: Global Village with many countries showcasing their products and services, art and culture.
Fire works are regular feature of all the shopping festivals that are held in Dubai. Shades of colorful fireworks in creek while crossing Rashid Al Maktoum bridge looks wonderful.
