If you are going in the morning, not so bad. If you are going in the evening or late afternoon (between 3pm and 9pm) then take a sleeping bag.

i live near to the Greens.

There is a lot of new restaurants opened there wagamamaammaamaas, some lebo slophouse and a nando's as well as a few pizza places.

Nowhere to go for a pint mind, nearest place is prob the Lakes club.

Its ok to stay for a week and is not that out of the way. I would rather stay there than anywhere near Bur Dubai/Deira etc
