As fast food restaurants and shopping malls have found, if you can provide enough interesting things to do for the children, then the parents will come and tolerate the ordeal of going out as a family.
Hanif Shaikh, the manager of the Fujairah Night/Tourist Souq believes this and he has ramped up his offerings for children, especially during the Eid Holiday.
All the Fun of the Fair
Hanif has shifted the children’s playground to a larger area on the southern side of the souq.
There are more rides on ferris wheels, trains and merry-go-rounds this year, plus cars to drive up and down the corniche.
There’s a new camel and a pony for only 10AED a ride.
There are stalls within the souq that will attract children as well as sweets, Magic Corn, drinks and other refreshments.
Take a Look

The Night Souq normally opens between 5pm and 12am (maybe later during Ramadan and Eid).
The Managing Director is Mr. Hanif Shaikh and the contact number is (09) 2239272.
