What people say

"Experience a stark contrast as you cross the river to the tranquil and picturesque Al Seef district in Dubai Creek. Here, old and new seamlessly merge, creating a captivating blend of traditional charm and modern amenities. Al Seef is a remarkable project that was launched in 2017, offering a glimpse into Dubai's rich heritage and the architectural style reminiscent of its past, when the city thrived as a prominent pearl diving hub. Stroll through the serene streets, admire the traditional buildings, and immerse yourself in the cultural ambiance. Take your time to explore the charming alleyways, discover local shops, and savor a leisurely cup of tea at a cozy cafe. Al Seef district is a true gem where you can experience the harmonious blend of history and contemporary life in Dubai."
"Get a glimpse of Old Dubai in a renewed fashion. Practice your haggling skills! This is a good tourist attraction, but if you want the true experience of a Dubai Souk, you need to take the ferry across the river to Bur Dubai. You'll usually find the same items in Bur Dubai for half the price!"
"Hidden from the hustle and bustle of the city- Al Seef is definitely a must visit!"
