  • Located adjacent to the old Gold Souk and the Dubai Creek, the Spice Souk is a historical market, brimming with life and interesting exotic smells to stir the senses! Well worth stopping by if you're ...  more »
  • It is located in the old city, I recommend a trip to the magic of colours, odours s especially of flavors ... Unfortunately, the vendors are a bit boring but just don't give it too much weight. Haggling can make good purchases I recommend taking courage and get to taste things. they do it willingly. Buy absolutely of imitation pepitine colourful made chocolates are made with camel milk, yummy!

  • The Spice market of Dubai is old and atmospheric. The liveliness in the narrow covered streets is fun to experience.
