Hatta Heritage Village

Travel back in time

If you’ve ever wondered what an Emirati village was like years ago, a trip to Hatta Heritage Village is sure to cure your curiosity.

The village, restored in 2001, is one of the oldest in the emirate. Step back in time to discover the magnificent Hatta Heritage Village among the reconstructed buildings.

If you want to see what original villages in Dubai were like – take a look around here. Most of it is made from the same materials that comprised the originals, including the two watchtowers, the fort and mosque.

Among the historical sites, you can step inside the local ruler’s house, known as ‘Bait Al Wali’. For a look into traditional life and culture of the time period, the artefacts like instruments, weapons, furnishings and more will give you some insight.

Nearby, you’ll find the Al Sharia Site, a palm tree farm which is home to the falaj, the underground irrigation systems created for local farms.

  • Avoid the day trip it’s exhausting and v hot
    I’ve always liked historical places but this tour could be better. The driver picked me at 8 I didn’t take breakfast that early only to know that it won’t be served but there was a station where i could get coffee n snacks to last for the day. It was 8-9 hours tour for me (was picked up first ) the village is on a hill but the actual challenge was hike in the scorching heat ! Though i went from Dubai n weather there was pleasant. Toilets only at enterance . Only worthy sight was hatta dam. Then again people could hardly boat there for 15 min because it was too hot ! The tour cost us 110 AED (desert safari was also 110 AED with much activities to enjoy) Wouldn’t recommend to take the day tour(nights are chill and better for hike) you can enjoy the dam view early morning.

  • Great piece of history
    So glad that things like this are kept for future generations to enjoy. A great insight into how a community used to be back in the days. A great thing to enjoy if you are going to make a day of Hatta. We did this as part of the Dam trip. Free to get in.

  • A fascinating glimpse into the recent past of rural Dubai
    Part of Hatta’s drive to place it self on the tourist map We spent a fascinating hour wandering round the restored buildings including an impressive fort , Watchtower with amazing views and various houses immaculately recreated to display Dubai’s recent rural past. It was evident that a lot of work was in progress to further improve this interesting destination. There were information panels in Arabic and English but unfortunately the audio visual displays were awaiting completion. Good toilets but nowhere to eat (yet) however there are one or two places to eat on the main road by the small shopping malls. Combine this with the 45 minute walk up to the dam (25 minutes down) which is initially well signposted passing the mosque then barring right by a series of hiking signs unfortunately the signs peter out just after you emerge from the palm oasis. Take a rather uninspiring dusty path under a series of modern lights next to a fence by a cultivated area to find the road and then turn right up to the dam. Well worth a visit and free (when we went)
