The place has potential but is not as interesting as it could be.. The good thing was that it was free.

Now the place begins to be good after a long time of construction and upgrades. Especially beautiful outdoors in the evening with the lights shining beautifully in the dark. Here you will also see how Dubai was before the skyscraper's time. Absolutely a place worth...More

air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders
call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the
