Our review

Beautiful sights and promenade. I would advise to visit if you happen to be nearby. If you plan to take a trip from far part of Dubai, you might get tired even before you see the first attraction. Pros - Beautiful. - Reason to explore the city-neighbor. Cons - Getting to Sharjah from Dubai in the evening (around 6-7pm) is kind of a challenge: traffic for cars, amount of people for public transport, distance for walking, no adequate roads for cycling. Together it makes it hard to reach your destination. - Distance between “encounters” is huge. Not “Dubai huge”, but still. Mind the number of roads that are gonna cross the way between two places. They’ll make you spend time wondering how to get from A to B. Thougths I came on Careem bike from Stadium metro station cause I wanted to explore both Deira and Sharjah. The further from Burj Khalifa I was, the worse pavements and cycling roads situations were. Until there were no cycling roads... Lol. Anyway, I still think it was the right choice, because walking between the parts of the festival is a straight road to lose all the strength before even reaching the third encounter. The first impression I’ve got was that event was postponed, because I didn’t see anything extraordinary. I expected to see buildings highlighted, light everywhere, but that’s not the case for most parts. However after a bit of cycling around the marks on the map I found a few installations and, later, highlighted buildings, some with video stories on them. Dunno what I would have done without this map. As a conclusion I would recommend one, if plans to visit, not to make expectations. Just go and enjoy the promenade.
