The Souks

Take a break from Dubai’s modern air conditioned malls and learn how to shop the traditional way in the city’s souks. This souk or traditional market sells everything available, but is especially known for its textiles. The huge number of vendors sell clothes, kitchenware, household appliances, henna and other such items. You can expect a good bargain here.


The tiny lanes of the spice souk are filled with scents to savour and the wonderful colours provide endless photo opportunities.

A trip to Dubai would not be complete without a visit to the gold souk. Streets of shop windows literally lined with gold, the souk can be a little overwhelming, but persevere and barter with shopkeepers – as you can purchase high quality gold jewellery at prices you’ll find it hard to match anywhere else in the world.
