I love taking visitors to this souk. The stores are very nice. The atmosphere is very lovely along with the outdoor views. Take the boat ride to tour the entire resort. It is worth it. All the restaurants are good. Love the decor of the entire souk.

I really love this Souk as I have visited it whist in Dubai previously. You can spend as much time as you wish browsing without being hassled but staff will assist if needed. Visited Trader Vic's on this occasion as well but been to the theatre on a previous trip and saw Joseph which was brilliant.

Having visited 'real' souks elsewhere we felt this souk was almost too perfect, a bit of a 'Disney land' interpretation of the real deal. It's very quiet and beautifully done, with lovely restaurants (if expensive) and beautiful waterways with a view of the Burj Al Arab.

Sure its beautiful and you get the whole Souk feel without having to go across the creek. Sure you can take an Abra ride and get creek side dining. But it is ridiculously expensive..the Abra ride is insane. The restaurants are pricey. So once you take the cab over you are kinda stuck. Its posh, elegant, fancy...so you have to... More

what I loved about it was it was so relaxing and after experiencing the souks in Abu Dubai this was such a pleasant contrast, as I am the greatest shopper this was my kind of shopping

Nice place using the old Middle East design. Lots of stores and places to eat. We spent a couple of hours looking around. We took the tram using orange line then cab. Not to far to Emirates mall by short taxi ride

Very attractive touristic modern version of a souk. Some nice restaurants, a Starbucks with a veranda overlooking the man-made lake. Expensive Arabic traditional souvenirs, jewellery and antiques. Stopped off on the big bus tour before the Palm Jumierah to get out of the sun and have a snack.

Visiting Madinat Jumeirah is always a treat as it has gorgeous architecture, an amazing view of the Burj Al Arab (which is located just behind), and a vast assortment of shops, restaurants, coffee shops, and a theatre. Though I am a resident of Dubai, I always enjoy popping into the souk to pick up souvenir items, have a drink with... More
