What to expect at this edition of the Dubai Shopping Festival
You are now leaving
The centre of plenty of action during Dubai Shopping Festival, you can expect great bargains and plenty of raffle draws at the Gold Souk. There are over 300 retailers here with its bustling pathways lined with glittering storefronts. This is the place to be if you like a great bargain during DSF with deals on sparkling gold and gem-studded jewellery. Take the time to shop around for the best deals – a few of our favourites include Joyalukkas and Malabar Gold & Diamonds.
With a picture-perfect location set alongside the serene waterways of Madinat Jumeirah, this souk has it all. Enjoy a carefully-curated shopping experience alongside award-winning dining and entertainment options. With grand Arabian lanterns and the aroma of traditional oud and bakhoor setting the scene, discover high-quality souvenirs, including Arabian coffee pots, antique jewellery and fine Indian silk, at the Indian Emporium, Lata’s and Modern Antiques. For something a bit different, browse the selection of contemporary Arab art prints at Gallery One, including pop art camels and calligraphy classics.
Best for: An all-in-one shopping experience
One of our favourite places to shop at The Dubai Mall, The Souk is an awe-inspiring space featuring glittering chandeliers, intricately carved motifs and charming water features. Here you’ll find a premium selection of jewellers, including the likes of Pandora, Toujours and Damas, with classic cuts and intricate gem-studded designs. Take a break from the sparkling jewels and head to traditional perfume boutiques such as Abdul Samad Al Qurashi and Arabian Oud, where you can learn more about how the locals layer scents for an inimitable fragrance.
Best for: Jewellery aficionados
Modelled after a 14th century souk, Khan Murjan at Wafi offers a treasure trove of colourful souvenirs and handcrafted gifts in a spectacular setting. A stained glass window takes over the ceiling while architectural design influences from Egypt, Syria, Turkey and Morocco are evident at every turn. Khan Murjan is a haven for authentic arts and crafts from across the region. Order customised calligraphy artwork at Golden Pen, browse handicrafts at Kahraman, or engraved glass tableware from Kudu Arts. Afterwards, enjoy a Moroccan mint tea at Khan Murjan Restaurant’s stunning courtyard.
Translated from Arabic as the ‘sailor’s market’, Souk Al Bahar is connected to The Dubai Mall via a bridge over the serene Burj Lake. Take in views of the record-breaking Burj Khalifa and dancing Dubai Fountain as you stroll through the tall archways. Shops such as Cashmir, Emad Carpets and House of Amber sell the best in Arabian shopping, from woven carpets and locally-crafted jewellery to precious oud perfumes. Afterwards, take a break from shopping, to have your hands painted with decorative henna at Heritage for Henna or dine at one of the souk’s waterfront restaurants.
