  • The district is an amazing place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city- and the Al Serkal Cultural Foundation has a nice cafe with good options. I always go to the book store at the foundation which is upstairs, if you ask you can be lead to it. They have great books on the region to pick up if you are a tourist visiting Dubai or live here and would like to get cultured :P also there are stores where you can buy unique things and souvenirs that have a cultural element as well. Looove this placeee its a must visit... and a great location
  • Peaceful place for a relaxing time for the mind and spirit.
