Naif Souk, WOT?

This goes for hemlock, Naif Souk is gone. Souk Naif or what we used to call Souk Al Sanadik (the boxes souk) once the center of Dubai shopping caught fire !!!

What has lift of it !!!


Am not a conspiracist but does anyone think that there is a relation with this?

Proud Emirati: I think that you should lead the revolution against what's happening.

I'll join you in the paranoia by observing that every time someone reminisces about old Dubai, part of it "disappears".

I remember a lot of suspicious chat around the time of the Oasis Centre fire, and before that, the old Lamcy Plaza. Seems as though fires of convenience may still be happening.

Yea, sure nzm

The real nick and i*maginate and will be our cheerleaders.

I would categorize this under the numerous cases of 'convenient fires' that occurred throughout the U.A.E. That way, the government doesn't have to face another awkward public revolt , such as http://archive.gulfnews.com/nation/Housing_and_Property/10196718.html

FYI, they did the same to the Chinko Satwa houses 4-5 years ago.

Proud Emirati.. thanks for this post.. I am proud of you!

By the way, I wish Dubai would erect a monument over the ashes proclaiming this as Dubai's First Shopping Mall :)

We always tend to look forward in this race of life but rarely give ourselves the chance to look back and reminisce.

Can't believe it's gone. This was part of the city's history, character and vibrancy.
