Souk & Bazar

These traditional Arabian markets are the places where any type of goods are available for buying and selling. They originated various centuries ago, when dhows from India, China and Ceylon arrived at the strategic Dubai's port for discharge their cargos.

The souks appeared on both sides of Dubai Creek becoming the most authentic sites to go for shopping and today they are considered among the principal attractions of the city.

Remember that the stores in the souks are situated on open-air pathways without air-conditioning. So, tourists should try to visit the markets in the evenings and cooler months. Moreover, due to souks preserve traditional customs, modest dress should be worn to avoid causing offense.
