When In Dubai, Drop By Souk Madinat Jumeirah For Middle Eastern Lamps, Jewellery & More
What Makes It Awesome
This place is an extension of the Madinat Jumeirah Hotel. The souk is a bazaar or marketplace with a traditional Middle Eastern feel. There are shops and various restaurants, and this place is so beautiful that it will leave you speechless.
What's My Pro Tip?
Shopping can be expensive here. There are antique stores and a lot of souvenir stores as well. Turkish lamps and evil eye is the highlight. You can find anything and everything under the sun here. From Hookahs, traditional Middle Eastern lamps, a variety of curios, Italian fur jackets, rhinestone shoes and clutches will urge you to shop till you drop. You'll also find people doing sand art. There are clothing and jewellery stores too.
A must do is the Abra boat ride in the water canal which is situated around the souk and resort. The 20 minute Abra ride costs AED85 but it's worth every penny! You can also spot the Burj Al Arab from here. Soak in the luxurious feel at this souk, and a meal at a restaurant along the canal will surely make your day!
