  • It's pretty nice and you get to see some of the United Arab of emirates culture. The view over their facing towards the city is just another must do this down here in Abu Dhabi. Finally, I would really recommended to stand next to the flag pole and look towards that giantic flag.
  • A quiet place to visit. I can imagine how Abu Dhabi used to be. Actually it wasn't too bad. A much simpler life.
  • It shows the heritage of the area and people. Maintained well. The seashore is beautiful. We can know the cultures of the people who lived at the city. What a renovation? Time changed everything. The people worked with a plan and made wonder. Thus the new city made with all.
  • Haya Dalati and Nouri Dalati had such a great time this morning. ..!
  • I didn't not find it particularly interesting here. There are some antique shops and stuff you can just checkout. Other than that it was a bit underwhelming considering the awesome sights and places I had experienced in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for that past one week
