  • It’s a very nice, modernised and clean souk. Ideal to have a pleasant experience with the local culture and their shops. It’s worth visiting! Also there’s a nice number of dining places and bars on site with excellent food and drinks options
  • Souk Madinat Jumeirah was the old market in the area and it now serves as a shopping mall with an interesting traditional architecture. The whole place looks like it is part of a fairytale, it's like being in Scheherazade's 1001 nights tale :) Apart from the souvenirs, clothes and other stuff, there are lots of hotels and restaurants in the area and also, you can rent super cars, helicopters and private jets :) I know, it's super cool
  • Souk Madinat Jumeirah is a mix of shopping and dining. It’s location is next to the Burj Al Arab it’s a modern interpretation of the classic souk. With great views. The mix of bars, restaurants and coffee shops and of course retail outlets in the pleasant setting of winding canals. It’s a bazaar a place to browse the perfect place to indulge in a little retail therapy. Its a maze of tiny alleys and walkways lined with stalls and shops. The architecture has a touch of moorish combined with the sprawling canals of Western Europe. It’s more Venice with a hint of Tarifa and a dash of modern contemporary styling. It’s a great place to explore to eat and drink to relax. The canals and walkways come alive at night and with the iconic Dubai skyline outlined and shining it’s a magical sight.
  • Again not much in the terms of proper shops like a Mall more the local souk but in a modern build , some nice places to eat, but it's much smaller than it looks. Was nice at Christmas, they had a outdoor market, good for the kids
  • This place is worth the visit. Compared to other malls it’s got a unique character, it feels like you’re in a open street market. Loved the views of the burj al Arab and the boat ride around the hote property was just amazing. If we have few hours make sure to take time to get over to this place.
