Awaken your senses at the Perfume Souk

Perfume Souk in Dubai
Follow your nose to the Perfume Souk and you will discover new aromas before you even arrive. Fragrance is a key hallmark of Arabian life, represented by the exotic array of scents you’ll pick up wherever you go. Some are mild, others more evident, while some are particularly potent – but each one will draw you in with a natural sense of inquisition as you decide which one is right for you.

Visit this Arabesque hub for shopping, dining and entertainment

Souk Al Bahar in Dubai

Souk Al Bahar is a modern twist on a traditional Middle Eastern marketplace. Found in the heart of the city, this popular hub combines shopping, entertainment and dining. Meaning ‘market of the sailor’ in Arabic, Souk Al Bahar sits by the water in Downtown Dubai. It is accessible through the beautiful walkway of Dubai Mall, overlooking The Dubai Fountain with the Burj Khalifa towering above. The frequented location makes this venue a regular spot to soak up the views of the world's tallest tower, especially during New Year's Eve celebrations.


For unbeatable offers and bargains on local items

Al Fahidi Souk delivers a taste of Old Dubai, where visitors can connect with residents closely and bond over shopping. You might even get bargains you can’t find anywhere else in the city, with much smaller crowds. You’ll find shops selling ready-made clothes helmed by both, local designers and popular labels, as well as toys, gifts, antiques and electronics.

A trip to Dubai isn't complete without a trip to the famous Gold Souk, one of the oldest and most fascinating traditional markets in the emirate. Whether you’re just browsing, or genuinely on the hunt for even the slightest amount of precious gold, walk through the glittering Gold Souk to find designs from around the world crafted in a variety of carats. You can be sure your purchases will be genuine.

The Gold Souk is located on the Deira side of Dubai Creek, just a short walk from other bustling souks and abra stations.
