The wadi is a geat place for early morning or evening strolls with the family. You can pack a lunch for a picnic or work up an appetite and go for a meal at the Bujair square in Diry'a which is nearby. It's best to visit between October and March when the weather is at its most tolerable.

A very quiet place with historical surroundings. If the weather is nice, then it is great place to spend the afternoon. You can bring your own snacks and hang around for a couple of hours.
