We took a walk and probably saw tons of gold, and huge number of gold shops showing their pieces. Some of them were quiet elegant and appeared to testimony a great savoir faire. But, to be honest, I expected more flair of a market place...as...More

I wondered how the old souk look liked 50 years ago. The vision behind this recreation is to attract tourists looking for an authentic experience, but that is not what you get. Be prepared to deal with agressive vendors and fake products. Don't start bargaining...More

The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original
air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
