Bur Dubai Souk

Bur Dubai Souk

Like the Golden Souk and the Spice Souk, the Bur Dubai Souk is a market filled with color and character. As its name suggests, it is located in Bur Dubai, on the shores of Dubai Creek.

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


From 10 am to 1 pm and from 4 pm to 8 pm. On Friday mornings, some of the shops are closed.


Metro: Al Ghubaiba, green line.
