Souk Madinat Jumeirah

Souk Madinat Jumeirah

The Madinat Jumeirah Souk is an attractive commercial center designed in the style of a traditional souk market. The wonderful ambiance here makes it attractive to both tourists and locals.

What can be found in the market

The souk has more than 70 shops where you will find fantastic souvenirs of the city as well as different bars and restaurants that are especially pleasant in the evening when the canals that wind around the market are lit up in a warm neon glow.

It is worth noting that some of the restaurant terraces offer perfect views of the Burj Al Arab.

Another popular activity done in Madinat Jumeirah is to take a ride in an 'abra',(traditional UAE boat) along the inland canals.

Essential

The Madinat Jumeirah Souk is one of the must-see sights in Dubai, as its architecture and covered passageways replicate the bazaars of the ancient Arab cities. It is the perfect example of how, in Dubai, the past rubs shoulders with the present.
