Meena Bazaar, Dubai

3.6
#9 of 96 in Shopping in Dubai
Tear yourself away from the glitzy modernity of the downtown area and experience a more traditional shopping experience at Meena Bazaar, a market offering goods from across the Middle East and South Asia. Travel down the winding side streets to explore the full range of stalls, and look for Pakistani stores with traditional clothing, Iranian spice stalls, and "ten dirham" shops selling affordable electronics and homeware. Make sure to haggle so as to get a good price for what you find. Planning Dubai trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • All the souls in Dubai are a good place for leisure walk around and make quick cheap purchases. Some of the Indian gold stores in Meena bazaar is better for gold purchase rather than the gold souk. Do lookout for good deals on genuine perfumes, but be careful, you can get easily conned as well. Surprisingly not many eateries around this place for a good snack or lunch.
  • From clothing to perfume to electronics to multi cuisine. Meena bazaar has everything to offer. Great Indian restaurants. Fantastic options for clothes boutique. Traditional Abra ride to Deira. This place has everything under one roof.
  • A good market place for some gold shopping and traditional Indian wear shopping, but beware of shady men who try to sell fake branded merchandise (it's an illegal practice in Dubai). There's a good scope for negotiation with traders and finding the best deal around if you know your prices right. Have a great trip to Meena Bazaar! :)
  • Amazing place to shoppe if you are on a budget but want to buy something in souvenirs or accessories or dry fruits or chocolates or perfumes. Clothes nothing even close to average, the malls are the best bet for that. But other stuff yes worth a try for the cheap bargains.
  • Home away from home for the Indian subcontinent population. Best place to buy gold and traditional clothes. Wide array of restaurants to choose from. Accessible to the creek, abra, metro makes this place pocket friendly. An enriching experience!
