Best time to visit Al Seef

Considering the weather in Dubai, the best time to visit Al Seef is in winter. As it is an open-air space, you cannot enjoy its charm if you go in summer. Also, you can watch the sunset if you go in the evening. The spot looks elegant at night due to the streets embellished with fairy lights. The interiors of the different restaurants are equally stunning at night, and simply strolling through the boardwalk is delightful.
