Heritage & Diving Village
Explore this fascinating ‘living museum’ in the newly restored Shindagha heritage area along the Creek, where you can watch craftspeople at work as well as learn about Dubai’s maritime history as a centre of the pearl industry. Displays include potters and weavers practicing their crafts, as well as exhibits and demonstrations of pearl diving. During the weekend evenings there are often dance and music displays, as well as camel rides and souvenir stands where visitors can purchase local crafts. Try the freshly-made local fried donuts – a favourite Emirati snack.
