Explore the souks
If you really want to lose yourself and discover something new, a trip to the souks is a must. Venture to the famed Gold Souk for statement gold jewellery, then head on to the vibrant alleyways of the Spice Souk where you’ll find everything from exotic spices and herbs to dried fruits, candied nuts and locally-blended teas. Nearby, Deira’s Perfume Souk is a haven for perfumes, essential oils, incense sticks and traditional oud fragrances. Whatever it is you are looking for, you can probably find it in a souk. Don't forget to bargain.
