  • BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE MERCHANTS IN THE SPICE SOUK
    I recently visited Dubai and experienced a most unfortunate incident with a local merchant and wanted to advise of an event to hopefully reduce similar negative situations for visitors to the Emirates. A small purchase of incense was made at SHER MOHAMMAD KAHN, a shop within the spice Souk. Upon closer examination of the credit card receipt, it was noted that the charge was excessive at DHS 2,412.00 (US$650). Within 30 minutes of the purchase the merchandise was returned and a request made for a refund. The individual who handled the sale refused to reverse the charge and was infuriated that a refund was being requested. The items were intact and no other selections were of interest to me. I simply wanted a refund for the credit card charge. The shop clerk repeatedly tried to make a deal reducing the sale price, which was not a solution. After it became obvious that this person or shop would not conduct business in an honest and ethical manner, I asked other merchants in the Souk for help. They suggested that I call the police (at 999) which unfortunately did not help resolve the situation. In fact, one of the officers told me that this issue was “not a police matter”. On a subsequent call to the police they asked to talk with the merchant – the police advised that the monies would be refunded. It seemed that the situation had reached a conclusion but the merchant then decided not to reverse the charge. This should have been a simple matter as I returned the complete purchase and respectfully asked for a refund. With no adjustment or resolution, I finally left the shop and promptly called my credit card company to advise them not to honor the charge. It seems logical that this store, its owner and the cleark should be advised that business practices as I experienced create negative impressions of the beautiful city of Dubai and the country. Certainly tourists should be aware to stay clear of this shop and perhaps others and definitely be vigilant when shopping in the Spice Souk.

  • Fun day out
    If you ever decided to visit spice margin and buy stuff there make sure you bargain good I mean very good ... it’s a place to visit and see around. A lot of souvenir to buy there and if you can walk around and also walk to gold soul. At gold souk you will just want to buy everything and there is a hidden shop that makes and sells fresh omani halwa make sure you try some. Don’t visit the market between 1 to 4 as many shops may be closed. Best way to go is taxi or uber as hard to find parking and there are few restaurants around
