Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, is itself built on an artificial island with a landmark object, a flagpole more than 200 meters high, which is also known as the world's tallest flagpole. It is reported that the flagpole is more than 200 meters high, and the flag on it is 40 meters long and 20 meters wide. The total area of the flagpole is 800 square meters, which is equivalent to a small half of the football field. Although it doesn't look very big, it's because it's too high. You can't think it's small if you compare it with the building below. Just below the flagpole is the Museum of Abu Dhabi, also known as the Folk Village. The buildings and environments inside reproduce the living conditions and features of the aborigines here at that time. In folk villages, there are also many animals, including sheep, cattle, chickens and ducks, and other livestock and poultry. There are horses, camels and mules in another place. Among them, the mule is the most interesting one. When someone comes to visit it, people usually go to the camel with the most desert characteristics first. But the old man is jealous, and beside it, he makes a loud "ah-ho" call to attract people's attention. There is also a well in the courtyard. Abu Dhabi is an emirate with high precipitation, especially in the Alain region of Abu Dhabi. This well in the folk village shows that the ancient Abu Dhabi people also got fresh water from groundwater to survive.
The architecture and environment in the folk village reproduce the living conditions and features of the aborigines here at that time. Looking across the city of Abu Dhabi, one side is a wooden hut, the other side is a high-rise building, the middle is separated by the beautiful Bay of Pis tricolor sea, can not help but lament the rapid development of the times.
Abu Dhabi Folklore Village, according to the local guide, was founded initially by the kings of the United Arab Emirates, who hoped that the people of the United Arab Emirates would not forget the poor days of their ancestors in today's church, similar to the Museum of Memories of Misery and Sweetness in China. The United Arab Emirates regularly organizes people to come here for education. At the same time, it will open up a scenic spot like the whole world.
As soon as you enter the folk village, you will see a statue of a large pot pouring water outwards, which commemorates an ancient Arab tradition. In the past, the Arabs were mostly nomads. Because there was no water in the desert, the warm and friendly people of Arab tribes would put a kettle in front of their house, which contained fresh water and provided a drink for the passers-by passing by. It is not difficult to imagine that in the desert where water is more expensive than gold, you can drink a mouthful of fresh water. You really don't know how warm the heart of the person who drinks water is. Here the "thatched hut" of the oldest living environment of the Arabs in the desert is reproduced. These thatched houses are made up of courtyards, living rooms, bedrooms and similar storage rooms outside. The floor of these rooms is covered with sand, with carpets in the middle. One side is a sofa-like cushion, the other is a table, and the other side is a bed. On the left side of the folk village, there are courtyards that reappear street fairs, with various doorboards hanging on the doors. These shops are typical Arabic-style handicraft products, including silver shops, jewelry stores, fabric stores, furniture stores, decoration stores, spice stores and so on. The goods inside are exquisite and distinctive, and sold to the outside world. In folk villages, there are also many animals, including sheep, cattle, chickens and ducks, and other livestock and poultry. There are also women dressed in traditional Arab clothes in folk villages, where they sell some small Arab-style crafts at stalls. Sometimes there are singing and dancing performances. From the folk village, you can see the beautiful seascape of Abu Dhabi on the other side of the sea. One side is wooden boat hut, the other side is high-rise buildings, can not help but lament the rapid development of the times.
Abu Dhabi Folklore Village, across the sea, is Manhattan in the Middle East. Ancient customs and modern cities blend together, unique charm of the wonderful Middle East, Abu Dhabi went 11 years ago. This is the folk village to go to. There are small animals everywhere. Every cat feels very rich. Kittens, ducks and pigeons are very close. The whole mood will be peaceful. Abu Dhabi is a city. I want to live there all the time except for a little sunshine! ___________
When you enter a folk village, you can learn about the past living conditions of the local residents. On one side of the road, there are thatched huts, kettles, wells and other living facilities. On the other side, there are small workshops, such as crafts, leather shops, glassware, cloth art, jewelry and so on. They have very local characteristics. Behind it are white beaches, blue sea water, and on the other side are modern cities with high-rise buildings, which are in sharp contrast here.
The most attractive part of folklore village is the seaside. I have to say that the seaside in Abu Dhabi is more beautiful than the seaside in Dubai, too many green water, the white sand beach, and the old wooden boat. It is really beautiful like a picture. The folk village shows all kinds of ethnic handicrafts of the UAE. The perfume bottles that are hand made are beautiful. It is like a small village and modern buildings. The feeling is totally different.
Abu Dhabi Folklore Village is an important stop in Abu Dhabi. It is small in size, but it has a variety of local characteristics, such as primitive houses (straw shed) and sprouting camels, horses, charming blue-green bay with milk style and scenery similar to Manhattan, and a dazzling handicraft shop.
