  • A modern version of the traditional Souq, then certainly this Arabic market. It is part of the magnificent resort Madinat Jumeirah and here, you can browse through endless streets. Of course, there are the perfect item that you like to take a nice home! The market place is especially beautiful at night. With a diverse selection of restaurants and cafes here you will certainly find the cuisine you are looking for. There is also a navigational Canal, after which you can go the traditional abra boat to one of the nearby hotels. There is also a navigational Canal.

  • Balcony views so picturesque. Depending on the restaurant you go to... the mood will be set. They have a great wine bar where you can go enjoy cheese & crackers alongside an assortment of great whisky,scotch and wine. Everything from high end eating to causal bars. Places for family and shopping for high quality trinkets.
  • We enjoyed our Christmas afternoon there with my 7 Mos old baby. That place was our dating place. Quiet, romantic and a lot of options. Family and couple friendly. Will go back for either a relaxing afternoon tea, a sunny brunch or an intimate dinner.
  • Oh my gosh, this place takes you back to the movie Casablanca. The architecture is absolutely magnificent. I was there for a Global Forum on Africa and the organizers laid down white carpet for the event. Stunning bathrooms, lots of places to sit and relax. Loved it...
  • An OK place to visit but not necessarily the "real Dubai". Mainly visited by Western/European tourists and the prices reflect that. Moving away from the touristic element, the souk environment itself, though all artificial, is a pretty impressive atmosphere and the spectacle is worth a look. There are some nice restaurants/cafes (not cheap given the area). Should you visit the Souk Madinat Jumeirah? Sure, that said, unless you are staying/living nearby you are unlikely to be a frequent guest.
  • So nice there but its kinda difficult to go home from there. Its not near the metro, so you have to ride a taxi to the nearest one. But it is a nice place and you can take beautiful pictures here.

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.
