Heritage village was still being worked on. Nothing in the constructed buildings. We went there on 4/10/18 and was disappointed, nothing happening. Building were sterile.

It's nice to see a little capsule of the old times in this ultra modern city. The village is a bit disneyesque as it is thoroughly renovated and uninhabited. Still it's not crowded at all and I enjoyed discovering the wind tower architecture and we...More

We spent a lot of effort taking the metro to get to this place, only to discover it is closed due to extensive construction in the area. There is no signage to indicate that fact until you arrive--after some arduous walking through the construction.

There are a few shops and coffee places in the area but for the most part it is just empty alleyways. Saying that it is still worth having a walk round and take some photos. I don't know how realistic it is of old Dubai,...More

A place that gives you the opportunity to see what Dubai was like before the skyscrapers and the other mega structures came in. Also tried out some local cuisine at the on-site restaurant. Definitely worth a visit.

The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders
call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the
place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original
