Textile Souk, Dubai

Survey the rainbow of colorful fabrics on display at Textile Souk. Cotton, embroidered fabrics, and raw silk are among the various cloths found at the market. Decorative extras to adorn outfits, such as buttons, lace, and sequins are also in abundance. Even if fabrics aren’t your thing, consider taking the water taxi to the market, which gives you panoramic views of the surrounding neighborhoods. If you do take a taxi, remember to negotiate; prices are rarely static. Plan my trip to Dubai with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • The textile souk is where I ended up buying good quality t-shirts at a reasonable price than other souks. Just remember to negotiate with a few vendors in order to find out their bottom price, then go...  more »
  • It has nothing of the authentic Arab souk. Shopkeepers rude and unnecessarily invasive. No deal unless you want to buy some fabric of India. Also treating long you get to price from shop. Only thing pleasant passing the creek with the barchetta in 1 ofhiram. A fake place like almost this entire city

  • you will find the same clothes in all the shops. Indian style for most, scarves pure pashmina, to after sales. It's not attractive, and it has quickly made the turn.

  • You can get a wide range of things here, from brightly colored lamps, spices, gold, fabric, jewelry and ready made clothes. It's the best!
  • It was exciting to go and look at the beautiful merchandise but I am afraid we were very overwhelmed with the Textile Souk, people everywhere trying to sell, no time to look because of the pressure of sellers trying to get you to look at their products or come into their store. It is very hard to ignore the very pushy sellers. We just wanted to get to the other end. I did buy 2 beautiful pashminas, so all was not lost.
  • I'm in textile for about 20 years , I think these is the best textile market in middle East. U can almost find any fabric here and prices are good
  • Historical market and well maintained with good traffic for both tourists and textile business people Many mosques around and at least one good Resturant is there.
  • Textile Souk carries all kinds of fabrics and ready made at a cheaper prices and readily available.. Mostly chiffon flowered and Indian nets were in every corner.. A collection of many kinds of fabrics.. And most of traders in the market were from East Africa according to the salesmen. After the purchase the Souk will pack and deliver for you in your country.

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.
