Heritage Village

Before skyscrapers spread across the horizon, Dubai was made up of fishing villages and Bedouin communities populated by potters, weavers and pearl divers. When you’re ready for a break from the modern world, step into the past by visiting the Heritage and Diving Village, located in Shindagha on the┬áBur Dubai┬áside of the historic Dubai Creek. This reconstructed village features distinctive palm-and-mud houses and barasti huts where you can watch potters and jewellers practise their craft and sample local cuisine.
