  • We really enjoyed visiting this place. You get to see how people used to live before the oil boom. Theres examples or traditional housing, a small area where women sell souvenirs, a small museum with artifacts, and an area where children can go on a camel or horse ride. Very nice.
  • A nice place to step in the past and discover how the life was back then. Good addition to the city point of interest.
