    Just for fun. Definitely a tourist trap with people yelling out to you to get you to buy things. But worth a visit to get a break from the more modern part of Dubai. You can let your mind wander, and see all the colors, imagining what it used to be like many years ago.

    The souks are a great place to visit on both sides of the creek and the cheap water transport makes it easy to go between. We weren't interested in buying spices due to the difficulty in getting them back to Australia but they are definitely worth the visit just for the colour and the aroma. You can also get other items at the souks like fabrics, silks, scarfs, pots and other nick knacks. Buyer beware of the other items, definitely haggle well and low, the quality isn't always great and you will find that out once you bring the items home. Still a fun way to shop through the market style avenues and streets

    If you are a keen cook looking to buy genuine ingredients this may not be for you. You cannot browse as the shopkeepers are extremely pushy as are the people touring fake watches and bags (they tell you they are fakes). We did buy spices from a shop that was better organised but even after some hard bargaining by my Sudanese friend I probably still paid UK supermarket prices. Time will tell about the next quality of my purchases. There are specialist shops back home where you get friendly service and good advice.
