Heritage and Diving Villages
Heritage Village includes a small museum displaying ancient artifacts from several archaeological sites dating as far back as 550 BC. The Village also displays and sells traditional crafts, pottery, woven goods and Bedouin jewelry. There is a small souk where visitors can drink coffee and sample traditional Arabic bread. There are also archaeological remains dating from the 6th century.
Diving Village gives a comprehensive look at what was once the major industry of Dubai: pearl diving. This is a good place to spend an afternoon, and provides an interesting look into what Dubai was like before the economic boom.
