This hidden Dubai boulevard will remind you of Barcelona's La Rambla

With its winding, tree-lined path and grassy verges, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this beautiful boulevard was the famous La Rambla in Barcelona.

But actually it's right here in Dubai, and it's in the last place you might expect.

Al Muteena Park is in the middle of Deira, and it's a charming oasis in an otherwise bustling part of town.

The grassy walkway runs for 1.3 kilometres (almost exactly the same length as La Rambla) and attracts a mixture of families and workers taking a break on the grass.

Even better, it's lined on both sides with loads of hole-in-the-wall restaurants and fun backstreet drinking spots, including legendary Filipino nightclub Kitakits and plenty of places serving street food.

To get to Al Muteena Park, head for Salah Al Din Metro station on the Green Line, and from there it's an approximately eight-minute walk.

While you're in the area, check out the nearby Reef Mall, which houses affordable outlets including Brands4U, Splash, Babyshop, Shoe Mart,
Lifestyle, Giordano, Hang Ten and another 90 stores to keep you shopping the day away.

It also features Fiesta Pinoy, an authentic Filipino restaurant serving up traditional dishes such as vinegar and soy sauce-stewed chicken adobo, along with local favourite pancit palabok (fully-loaded noodles).

From a quick walk in the park to a street food lunch and shopping for bargains, all in one area – what more could you want?
Free. Near Salah Al Din Metro station, Deira.
