  • A nice stroll. Very pretty decos, the souk is air conditioned, which is significant. On the other hand, the shops are expensive. The exteriors are beautiful, and ability to take a picture of the Burj Al Arab.

  • This and that and I make a true view on the concept of Tom market a fun and enjoyable place and not the actual traditional markets and otherwise cover first of all was great! Burj al arab is also good and avoid sunlight as it was really good-of course, myths, but the length would go back!

  • Nice place for a walk and some shopping. If you have young kids they will get bored quickly. Lots of selection for restaurants. Some great outdoors seating areas. Pick a cool night and enjoy
  • One of the top places you have to go in Dubai! Really beautiful and lots of things to do and see. Trader Vic's is one of my favorite spots. In the winter time, they host a German Christmas market that even sells mulled wine. 😍
  • In my opinion, it's a great touristic place where you can eat really good food and find some souvenir. The environment it's self looks like the old markets. Overall it's a great place to spend some time if you are not doing the other amazing things you can do in Dubai or eat some dinner.
  • Large market style place but with mostly the same stuffing each stall. The view was incredible, being able to see the Burj Al Arab and dining by the river. The boat rides looked amazing and if you have dinner during happy hour there are many good deals - for vegetarians as well. We went on st Patrick's Day but still not super busy. Also one of the few dining areas you can reliably get good beef.
  • Madinat Jumeirah is a really nice “fake” souk It is a indoor type not a outdoor. They have decorations when there is a event for example Ramadan and Christmas decorations. Good type of shops with costa Coffee and Starbucks,nice cloths shops, a hotel! ( next door) rivers with boats but they are expensive! Staff are nice. When you walk around you see magazine racks you can take them home because they a free.(you pay nothing) make sure to come here. One of the places you DO have to go. Love the place. 😀
