  • STAY AWAY! This is the ultimate tourist trap, and a scam. If you are a foreigner they will view you as fair game. They will push, harass and aggressively try to invite you into their shop. In...

  • Old Dubai is just wonderful its has so much character and wonderful hidden gems around ever corner. Great people with great shopping with a lot of authentic products like spices and more that fill the market with such great aromas. I will say don’t buy at first sites best to shop around until you get the best bargain. Which there is so many bargains to find. So much history and great food.
  • I love old Arabic souqs anywhere, but here it was amazing. Your olfactory sense get alerted and awakened. You smell the gorgeous Arabic perfumes and incense and Persian and Hindu spices and condiments. Very relaxing.
