Heritage Village: Where Culture Comes Alive!

Posted in Air Travel, Dubai, Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on April 12, 2010

The best way to get a glimpse and feel of Arabic culture is through the Heritage Village located near the mouth of the Dubai Creek. Heritage Village can be viewed while on a boat tour in Dubai too. Amidst the big shiny skyscrapers here, this village is the only place where you will actually be able to picture how Dubai looked 100 years ago.

The occupations that were in vogue among the Arabs many years ago, come alive at the Heritage Village. They come alive in the form of life-sized people made of clay engaging in their trade. As a tourist, you will just need to take an hour or two of your evening to enjoy this site. The Heritage Village is small; which is the best characteristic of it. This guarantees that you would have enough energy to visit other places.

As Arabic culture is very simple to grasp at the Heritage Village, the DSF has also included this location in the Kid’s Calendar for DSF year 2010. This village displays traditional handicrafts, restored houses, Bedouin snacks, birds of prey displays, camel rides, horse demonstrations, cultural dances and generally depicts a festive atmosphere. Thus it is one of the most enjoyable venues in the city.

The Heritage Village is open from Saturdays to Thursdays from 8am-10pm and on Fridays from 8am-11pm and 4pm-10pm. You can make a booking yourself or let a tour company make it for you. As far as reaching Dubai is concerned you can make an airline travel booking instantly with www.travellerszoo.com our online travel booking system.

Mumbai: ___________

Posted in India, Maharashtra, Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on March 19, 2010

 

Call Mumbai whatever you want. Its a city full of opportunities, glamour, poverty, niceness as well as luck. Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay is the capital of Maharashtra. 

It is the second most populous city in the world and the biggest city in INDIA. Mumbai makes dreams come true and is also known as the Alpha City. Thus it has the guts to survive by itself. After all..it is part of one of the BRICK countries. Tourists are always amazed at the mix of ideas, styles, food, religion and people they get to meet here. 

Mumbai is an archipelago of 7 islands…. (Even we ‘Mumbaikars’ couldn’t believe that as kids). These islands were- Bombay Island, Parel, Mazagaon, Mahim, Colaba, Worli and Old Woman’s Island also known as Little Colaba. According to archaelogists these islands were inhabited since the Stone Age. 

The city and the suburbs form 2 distinct revenue areas of this island city and the Bandra-Worli sea-link connects the two. 

You can’t get enough of this city- not now… never!
