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.

  • 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)

  • Nice heritage village near the border
    We stopped at this archeological syte before passing the border to go to Oman. The historical buildings are well preserved, and some sections of the syte are still in restoring.

  • Step back in time!
    This area is being restored beautifully. There was lots to do and see. There is educational material with the exhibits in Arabic and English! Well worth a stop off if your in the area!
