Wander in souks old and new
Travel back in time to the heart of old Dubai where the bustling souks will treat your senses to rich sounds, sights and scents. Follow your nose to the Perfume Souk – home to Arabian scents such as oud - or indulge your desire for sought-after jewels and precious metals at the Gold Souk. Across Dubai Creek, wander through the Textile Souk in Bur Dubai to dig through swathes of brightly coloured silks and embroidered fabrics. Dubai also offers a modern take on the Arabian market. Souk Madinat Jumeirah in Madinat Jumeirah and Souk Al Bahar overlooking the Dubai Fountain both make great souvenir stops. There’s plenty of traditional shopping to be found at the famous Gold, Spice and Textile souks, which are worth a visit for their location in fascinating old Dubai.
