Hanif Shaikh, the manager of the Fujairah Tourist Night Souq, knows that not everyone has a fixation with shopping. Realistic as he is, Hanif has established the newest and arguably the most scenic shisha café in Fujairah.
Go through the Night Souq, out the other side—just beyond the children’s entertainment area but stop when you arrive at the water’s edge.
This is hardly a café because shisha smoking has been forced out doors in most public places of the UAE.
The shisha is still very popular with the locals and most tourists feel that they need to try at least a puff to inhale the Emirates.
The Tourist Night Souq shisha site is simple and minimalistic:
* The children playing behind in the amusement park.
* A large TV screen to one side for checking the football.
* A few friends around the tables, chairs or lounging on a couch or two.
* Waiters to take your order and help you light up.
* The starry sky above.
* The gentle waves of the sea lapping at your feet.
The Arabian Peninsula! The Arabian Sea! The Arabian culture!
