  • Excellent experience at the Souk Madinat Jumeirah. Close to the Beach Highly Recommended For Everyone.  more »
  • The whole Madinat Jumeirah is my favourite area of Dubai. Was built when there was plenty of money around and the quality is just a lot better than anything done today. Also has the best bars in town.  more »

  • Although recreated, still gives a feel of a souk. Very nice shops and restaurants. You can easily sit by the water and relax some hours away.
  • Nice souk like indoor mall. Reminded me of some Vegas hotels. Nice views outside but only when it's not too hot
  • Very small shopping complex but worth the visit as you get to ride on Ubra boats to get there. Not cheap to shop there but you may find something you really like. I did enjoy walking there doing window shopping..
  • Wonderful place for families Good Also for the activities Nice view A lot of options Historical and parks are available for free for 2 hours
  • One of the best places I've been to in Dubai. This area is more cultural and classic. I recommend everyone to go there, especially non Arabs.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
