Deira City Center: Shopping malls
When I first read about Dubai it said that the city was a like a Hong Kong of the Middle East. And yes, we did find out that they have quite a lot of malls and you can find really good buys. I found a Wilson 120g squash racket for 280 Dhs (about 90€) at Lamcy plaza and this is normally like 175€ here in Norway. In almost all of the malls the prices was reduced because of the Dubai Shopping festival. We went to Lamcy plaza, Wafi mall, Bur Juman Center, Deira City Center. I think that the Deira City Center probably was the best one in terms of selection. Some of the places are more “up market” than others. One can normally tell this on the number of brand stores inside of the shopping mall and the number of nice cars on the parking lot outside the mall. Outside Wafi we came across a BMW Z8, BMW 840 and a Hummer. Now that is a car that is not seen very often
Spice Souk: Spices
If you like to cook Indian food then you can find more or less all that you need here. I enjoyed walking in and out of the shops looking at all the stuff they had. We also bought some saffron of course but we only bought a little because I don’t know much about it and the prices varied a lot. They sold both Iranian and Spanish saffron and the Iranian was a lot more expensive because it was claimed that this was much better. And it certainly did smell a lot more potent than the Spanish saffron. But they also have lots of other spices of course. The people selling the stuff are a lot more “aggressive” when it comes to closing the deal compared to what I’m used to. And you have to bargain of course.
When in Dubai you must visit the souks. The clothing leads to the Spice Souk and then the Gold Souk. All the shops in the Gold Souk have many delights to tempt you into that 'special' purchase. As you can see from the photo, traffic cones were plentiful here as repair work is carried out........... just like home!
