If something strikes your fancy, remember that haggling is the norm here, so try your best to get a fair price. Take your camera with you to snap shots of the artfully arranged stalls and the traditional local produce. Dubai Spice Souk is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Dubai Edition.
