  • A nice stroll. Very pretty decos, the souk is air conditioned, which is significant. On the other hand, the shops are expensive. The exteriors are beautiful, and ability to take a picture of the Burj Al Arab.

  • This and that and I make a true view on the concept of Tom market a fun and enjoyable place and not the actual traditional markets and otherwise cover first of all was great! Burj al arab is also good and avoid sunlight as it was really good-of course, myths, but the length would go back!

  • We are definitely going back to this Souk. I recommend the little boat trip. There is a great perfume shop in the Souk, we found the perfect gift. The guy was very helpful and did not get fed up with me trying different scent's. There is something for everyone, it's very relaxed and romantic. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Highly recommend it for a half day or more
  • Love love love the Souk Madinat. Enjoyed visiting the location and that i decided to go back for a second time. It is one of my favourite places in Dubai. Lovely pubs, good music, ambience and views that are great for pictures. There is a variety of food as well and all sorts of little gifts to buy if you are a tourist.
  • The entire Souk is a pleasant and peaceful location, even at busy times. The parking is good and there is also valet parking and many, many taxis available all the time. The collection of restaurants and bars is vast and they all have a unique feel and most have a great vista. The Souk itself is very much aimed at the Western tourist and many pseudo-arabic trinkets and clothes are available. It's quite easy to get a little lost even though it's not vast. I would recommend an evening trip here.
  • Beautiful place. It gives you the real feel of the old Arab souk with it's classic soul like building and interior. I won't suggest really shopping there because everything here is super expensive. But it's got some amazing restaurants and bars. You can have a romantic dinner here... sit outside by the small lake with the palm trees and enjoy a wide variety of cuisines! Strongly recommended.
  • Amazing shopping mall, one of the coziest. Built in old-fashioned souk style, it has diverse shops, restaurants and cafes to fit all needs. I'd pay a visit even if you weren't planning to buy anything, as the place is worth seeing on its own. It offers great views to Burj Al Arab on the terrace of Costa!
