Mangrove Walk - Abu Dhabi

May be it's just my love for quiet and nature. The time spent at the Mangrove Walk was worth a million. 

Located on Jubail island between Yas Island and AD city, this is an absolute must visit site. Spread across the huge area, it has 3 walking paths with the longest being approximately 2 kms. Aside from the nice peace and quiet of the walk, one gets to be one with nature. The walk through the mangroves provides an interesting insight into the complex ecology. Mangroves are a rich habitat for a variety of species including birds, insects, and fish. Information boards placed along the path are an excellent source more information about the flora and fauna that live in the mangroves.

Things to note; visit during the high tide.

Heritage Village - Abu dhabi

The Heritage Village experience is a one of a kind. It takes you into a time capsule as you travel across eras of the past and get  ring side view of the rich history and culture of UAE. 

The recreated village provides a peak into the way of life in the country's past eras. While the village has a wide range of exhibits, the most interesting for me was the various demonstrations and workshops by skilled craftsmen. There were Emarati ladies weaving carpets and creating other ornamental works. The wood carving and the sword making workshops were of special interest for me.

The village is an excellent option for a day out with the family. Aside from the display of the rich history and cultural aspects, the kids will be able to see many local animals including a camel, a horse, cows and goats.
