  • Dubai spice Souk or the old Souk is a traditional market, he is very popular and is visited both by tourists and by locals - can be reached through the "Deira Old Souq station". The Spice Souk (you should take a deep breath when one strolls through the narrow alleys of the Spice Souk) is located in Eastern Dubai in Deira and borders on the Dubai Gold Souk - right across from the Dubai Creek. The Spice souk, Baniyas Street up to Al RAS consists of several narrow aisles, fitted with open and closed roof coverings made of wood. The stores in the Spice Souk sell a variety of fragrances and spices, incense, etc. Artful Hill fragrant herbs heaped up and spices, that there is to see there at every step. Sacks of spices, incense, rose petals and traditional medicines, many herbs used in Arab and South Asian dishes are lined up before every stall. You can find real saffron, there is some special shops, but also cardamom, cinnamon, div. getrockenete flowers and tea. In addition, there are products for household, textiles, carpets, souvenirs etc. The usual haggling - best price is made before the completion of a purchase/trade. The amount of the number of stores trading spices in the Spice souk, has unfortunately significantly decreased in recent years. You should meet their wares to give the tourists in the hand or wearing very relaxed dealers/sellers, who are trying, with much humor, then the fun on both sides and no negative experience is.
