For several centuries, the souks have not just been served as a place for trading goods but also a meeting point where both traders and customers could catch up with events.
It is a fascinating experience to immerse yourself in the bustling, lively atmosphere of Bur Dubai's souk and try your hand at haggling for a bargain, besides also taking excellent souvenir photos.
What to buy
Although it started life as a market dedicated exclusively to fabrics, nowadays, in the souk, it is possible to find t-shirts, lamps, keyrings, miniatures, and all kinds of articles and souvenirs of the city.
In the surrounding streets, you will find dozens of tailors ready to make you a tailor-made suit at the best price
