Dubai's souks and markets: A winter guide
Published on January 13, 2021 at 22.40
As part of the 'World's Coolest Winter' campaign, explore the traditional markets by the creekside this winter
Located on the Deira side of Dubai Creek, the Gold Souk, Spice Souk and Perfume Souk are all within walking distance.
Catch an abra for the short ride to the Textile Souk on the opposite bank in Bur Dubai.
Seasoned cooks will find Spice souk a delightfully aromatic journey, while non-foodies will be amazed by the variety of colours and exotic fragrances.
Dubai’s famous Gold Souk is one of the best places in the world to shop for fine jewellery, gold and silver and gemstones.
Take a stroll through the Gold market and pick your daily wear!
From the souks in Deira, it’s just a short boat ride across the Creek to the covered alleyways of the Textile Souk.
The many shops here offer a range of hand-woven fabrics.
While you are there, stop by and feed hundreds of circling seagulls.
Take a break from the glitz of the city to explore its past.
And when you have shopped to your heart's content, relax by one of the numerous creekside.
