Shopping Street, good for a bargain!!!

Crowded streets await you especially during the weekends. Makes up for good bargains as the competition is high in the area. Recommended for shopping and local delicacies.

This area is mostly for Indian shopping. Lots of ready made clothes/ material shops, jewellers, mobile phones and dry fruit/grocery shops. We found that with the low rate of the pound things seemed expensive. here a bit of bargaining power is helpful. Be careful though if someone approaches you claiming to cure your diabetes or beer belly for some herbal... More

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
