[Value for money] Many people say this is the most boring attraction in Abu Dhabi. I don’t think it’s right, because you can’t judge her from the perspective of ordinary countries when you travel to the UAE, because she is a desert country and a country with short history It was only established in 1977) Ah, if you judge her by Singapore’s greening standards or judge her by India’s historical monuments, it would be a big mistake! You have to treat her with a developmental mentality! Take the Folk Village as an example. Many people think it’s not interesting to make a tourist attraction, but it is an exhibition hall that condenses the Arab culture and life, and as a local tyrant, she wants you to see the discovery in the 1970s. How bad their living conditions were before Petroleum and how generous their lives are now, I think this folk village is well-interpreted! Moreover, it was built on a small artificially reclaimed island in the Persian Gulf. The greening in the desert is like this, and it does not charge a penny (a symbolic fee 16 years ago). I have always thought that when you travel, you should not always look at the world with a wary wolf-like critical eye, and to be tolerant to see the good places of others. That is the true meaning of reading thousands of books as well as traveling thousands of miles!
Some tourists will miss this place, but from the perspective of understanding history. It's worth coming here. Although it is not luxurious and modern, it is a glimpse of the UAE's genes from history. Especially the Islamic cultural background.
The museum in Abu Dhabi is also called the Folk Village. The buildings and environment inside reproduce the living conditions and style of the aboriginal residents here. Come here to learn more about the construction history of Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi Folk Village is a great place to learn about the history of the old UAE, with many of its specialty stalls, if you like.

An interesting attraction that offers an inside look at Bedouin lifestyle and culture, Heritage Village depicts what a typical oasis village would have looked like. There are several small shops where artisans display hand crafted goods and demonstrate their techniques. Live animals traditionally used for transportation are also available for viewing. The cafe/restaurant inside Heritage Village serves great Arabic dishes and offers breathtaking views of the city. Overall, an interesting attraction and great for kids.
