Sample authentic souks
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 and indulge your desire for sought-after jewels and precious metals at the Gold Souk. Across the Dubai Creek, wander through the Textile Souk in Bur Dubai and dig through swaths of brightly coloured silks and embroidered fabrics.
For a more contemporary take on the Arabian market, Souk Madinat Jumeirah in Madinat Jumeirah and Souk Al Bahar overlooking the Dubai Fountain are great souvenir stops.
