  • Want to get acquainted with the Arab culture closer-this is the place. All very modestly, as oil from the Arabs.

  • hi it was very calm place and i saw some of traditional bazara there and some of women were making bread by their hands and fresh 
  • interesting, picturesque place-original 18-19 centuries, built on the spot where the city was formed. Many territories now fenced off and closed to the Viewer, but only for 3 dirhams, you can go to Sheikh beginning 20 century, take a walk along the waterfront, visit the old textile market, take a ride on the water taxi, eat in restaurants, etc.
