It was a great learning experience for me. I learned that the emiratis before were living thru fishing and planting vegetables. I learned the different kind of money/coins they have. One thing that disappointments me was there are only few artifacts in the museum. The...More

If only given one choice, which place is more worth visiting, Qasr Al Hosn or Heritage Village?

I would do a trip to Qasr Al Hosn... its in the heart of town and has a lot to offer. You could always do the Heritage Village in the evening. The village is interesting, but the Qasr has more to offer.
Hello, I've seen a picture where you were rode a camila, is it for rent? I want to go with my 5 years old son and it should be interesting. :)
