After a short rest Ginny and Sern took us to Al Wasl Road where Boxpark is situated. Taken from their website: “Standing long and proud on Al Wasl Road, a riot of green, yellow, orange blue and grey, Boxpark is a mall unlike no other. It doesn’t take over its environment. It’s a part of it. It’s a part of the very urban soul of the city.”
The idea for Boxpark originated from the UK and is meant to be a food and retail park made out of refitted shipping containers. It was founded by Roger Wade who described it as the "world's first pop-up mall".

We marveled at the entire construction of the place, and thought that refitted shipping containers never looked so elegant and funky.

We had dinner at Markette, a cozy place with a welcoming ambience and fresh off-the-kitchen comfort food.
