After checking it at my hotel in Deira, this was the first attraction I visited i the area. I noted shops and stores as I walked towards the Abra Station where I rode the local boat for 1 AED.
The boat ride was short, about 5-7 minutes. There is a Souq or a small market area where one can shop for clothings, spices, nuts, bags & luggages, jewelries, etc. Of course there are small restaurants along the creek and near the Souq.
I enjoyed my visit here. Highly recommended to visit here, when you get bored visiting high rise buildings.
