Dubai Diaries: Souk Madinat Jumeirah


Whilst in Dubai, we knew we wanted to visit Souk Madinat Jumeriah. Not only is this place AMAZING for pictures, it's also a great place to grab a bargain. We didn't visit any other souks, so I cannot compare prices, however for lil souvenirs for family/friends, we found it to be great value. We also ate here, and again it was far cheaper than the steep Dubai prices we were used to.


The outside areas are gorgeous with a river running through the area. You can go on boat rides, but honestly it was just too hot to even contemplate staying outside for a boat ride!


We found the souk to be a really great experience. We weren't sure what to expect and thought that we would probably be hassled by the store owners to purchase things, but it could not have been any different. They let you look around the stores at leisure, with no pressure to buy anything. However, I have heard that at the more traditional souks, it's a far different experience!


Souk Madinat Jumeriah is a great place to spend a couple of hours, and the best spot to get those pics for the gram! A must visit if you are in Dubai.

  11. It's looks like a nice place, can't believe it's a market area. The river makes a lot of difference. Good on you to mention this place.
