The souk was a nice experience as it feels so authentic and arabian! There are lots and lots of shops ranging from arabian gift store and home stores to Converse and Holland and barratt! You definietely can get lost in there as it has so many different turns and aisles. Lots of food options and ice cream parlours.

It is not a great place to waste your time. They have some stores but it is only nice for its arabian architecture design. You can get a great picture from Burj Al Arab from there.

I was skeptical that the souk experience would be contemporised much (it was) but it is still pretty much worth the visit...the ceiling of the souk area are done up in Egyptian style...the myriad lamps on the street side are worth observing..there is reflection of old houses of dubai and it has Burj Al Arab overseeing all of this!

We visited the Souk Madinet during our holiday and were very impressed. Laid out like a traditional souk there is a variety of shops, coffee shops, restuarants. You can also take a boat ride round the lagoon.

One of my favourite places on a Thursday night, great selection of pubs, clubs, cocktail bars and restaurants. I must admit that I still get a bit lost from time to time in the Souk but that is part of the charm. If you can find it, there is a great photo spot of the Burj al Arab. If you... More

The souk is part of the Madinat Jumeirah resort. Slightly overpriced shops but a very pleasant place. Beautifully planned with just the right amount of natural light. There is one good antique shop, a few coffee shops and restaurants. Try the Belgian Cafe.

Most of the reviews here nail it, as do the very courteous responses from the Souk management. It gives a souk environment, without the heat, dust and haggling. The shops are lovely, pricey, but lovely. Some of the restaurants are good, we had a very good value, tasty, meal at the Noodle restaurant. Outside you are able to take a... More

If you are looking for a traditional souk, Souk Madinat is not it. Souk Madinat is a more upscale souk with many nice original stores where you can purchase souvenirs. It also has numerous restaurants and a theater. I really enjoyed the overall atmosphere of this venue.
