Cozy alleys to stroll in and historical buildings. When we where there it was a festival and live music on a little stage in the middle of the small “village”. Food, desserts and drinks served from little kiosks.

Apart from the interesting local art and insights into the history and heritage of the emirati lifestyle, the streets and architecture provide a beautiful setting for photography enthusiasts. Definitely an area to explore in Dubai.

The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
