Here is one of those places we have successfully visited.
Sharjah had its annual Heritage Village Festival that collected all GCC countries in one place. Every country presented their customs & traditions through different cultural items and performances such as national outfits, dances, food etc.
Despite that all mainly were strolling around the area, me and my friends gathered in this pavilion where was settled a nice traditional majlis perfectly suited to sit by big groups of people and discuss social and other problems without bothering others. Around the sitting area there were nicely decorated rooms with demonstration of multiple fields of traditional life in the region. I was happy to see families were vising this pavilion and reading all this beautifully made posters for their kids that may sounded for the little ones as another life they may not have anymore. Somehow i got a chance to back to this place before we left the village and took pictures of the every room and corner which were already empty but still meaningful.
