Al Seef Dubai – A Magnificent Destination
Distant from La Mer Dubai, one of the new and exciting places that property developer, Meraas has built is the Al Seef Dubai. It is a dinning, shopping and leisure destination that is located near the Creek side area which is Al Fahidi neighborhood.
If you stroll along the area, you will be fascinated by its charm. It is surely one of the places you can take your family and friends if ever they travel to Dubai for a visit. The Al Seef Dubai is very different from the typical modern attractions of the emirates as it highlights the culture and heritage of emirates.
A short Description: Al Seef Dubai
Beautiful traditions combine with modern designs at this charming destination, showcasing the city’s blend between its proud past and bright future.
Al Seef Dubai is spread into different phrases as it covers a span of about 1.8 km with a very attractive tagline – Where the Old Meets the new! There is an area where it’s modern, and there’s an area where you can see wind towers and stones which reflects back to the history of the UAE. It is really combined well and therefore it is perfect for a relaxing stroll especially at night.
It was launched in late 2017 Al Seef celebrates Dubai Creek’s beginnings as the famous coastal pearly driving base. Hugging 1.8km of Dubai Creek’s stately shoreline, the 2.5 million square foot development has two sections – a heritage area featuring old architecture and a second space featuring more contemporary structures.
Once a dynamic entryway to the Gulf’s most successful pearl diving port, the Creek’s legendary presence can still be felt today here, with fisherman and merchants crisscrossing the calm waters in their sleek dhows as part of their daily routine.
The best way to take it all in is to embark on a cultural walking tour of the pedestrian-friendly Al Fahidi historical Neighborhood, before wandering over to Al Seef and exploring its charming walkways, fully-operational marina, dining boulevard and events plaza on foot.
Al Seef Dubai is a bit busy during Friday’s as families head out to enjoy and make the most especially in the cold winter season. It is nice to see children playing and families bonding. The best thing about this place is that it is easily accessible via metro station Burjuman and it doesn’t cost you if you want to take a leisurely walk.
The Creekside area of this place is rich in history and experience as this is where pearl-drivers, fishermen and tradesmen started.
Dubai has always come up with new and modern destinations to visit for tourists while I am very happy that they have developed this new place while keeping its charm and history.
Old World Charm
Al Seef Dubai places a strong emphasis on the region’s proud heritage, and presents forward-thinking elements that showcase the area’s natural beauty. Dotted with wind towers and sandstone buildings, a stroll through the old-world district and its charming sikkas, or alleyways will offer a glimpse of past Dubai life.
Paying tribute to the traditional time, Al Seef has introduced an open-air floating market with creek side pontoons, hosting regional crafts and textiles, Emirati art spaces and pop-ups dedicated to local cuisine. Add in the recently-completed Arabian 1950s-style souk and the result is a hands-on experience of traditional Emirati and an authentic flashback to the lifestyles of past generations.
Enjoy a meal near by the Creek
Interconnected paths lead the visitors along the stunning waterway, with options for a casual family meal, romantic dinner or elegant catch-ups all on the menu for visitors. Café culture abounds, with the vast majority of waterfront restaurants offering seasonal al fresco seating.
Some of the first restaurants to open in the district were casual Lebanese outlet 961 LB, American-meets-Arabian diner Dukkan Burger, the homegrown Kava and Chai coffee house, and Sul Fiume, an Italian Lebanese fusion venture.
Discover a new retail hub
Al Seef is also home to myriad shopping concepts situated throughout the development, with something to satisfy every style. Savvy shoppers can pick up trendy hand bags available at the Zeneve London and customized jewelry at Wired up, an accessories heaven.
You can also sample luxurious Arabian fragrances and perfume oils at Eter story or find a designer watch at Galerie Hindam. Stylish men can be fitted for any type of kandora – the local dress favored by Emiratis – at Aref Abdul Raheem.
This irresistible combination of Emirati heritage and services, homegrown concepts and world-renowned brands is sure to keep you visiting again and again.
