There are two old souk areas, one on either side of the Creek, right in the heart of the city. In Bur Dubai you'll find the textile souk with an amazing array of materials in all kinds of patterns. There's something for every kind of clothing and it's very inexpensive.

The souk also has a variety of other shops, bureaux de change and restaurants and it leads up from the souk into the major shopping area around Al Fahidi Street.

You can easily spend a whole evening just wandering around taking in the atmosphere, but there's so much to buy at such good prices that you're sure to be tempted! Evening is best for atmosphere because of the lights, the hustle & bustle, the smell of food cooking in the cafes & restaurants...and of course it's a little cooler.

Directions: On the banks of the Creek in Bur Dubai.
