    A charming mall

    This is a very quaintly designed mall. The shops are upmarket but the architecture and the whole ambience is very charming and it is fascinating to walk around. This is also a clever way to view the only 7 star hotel in the world, The Burj Al Arab. With many cafés and shops this is a must visit if you like to indulge in a relaxed day.

    Madinat Jumeirah is the largest resort complex in Dubai and includes 2 luxe hotels and 29 palatial private villas and lots of bars and restaurants and a 5.4 kilometer man made waterway with private Abra Boats to shuttle people to and from other areas of the resort (that costs AED 35). It sits Side by side with the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, The Wild Wadi Waterpark and the Burj Al Arab at Jumeirah Beach Roasd. It also has a mall that is designed into a traditional but air conditioned souk, called the Souk Madinat Jumeirah. It is better to visit Madinat Jumeirah at night as it has a lively nightlife and it has many restaurants and bars at that include the Italian favourite Segretto, the Moroccan Shoo Fee Ma Fee, The Wharf, Barzar, Koubba Bar, The Agency, A'Rukn, Bahri Bar, Centimetro, Toscana, Trader Vicks and Jam Base

    The traditional emirati wind towers top the low-rise buildings of Madinat Jumeirah, lighting up at night to cast a romantic glow over the whole area, complete with winding canals and outside eateries and is the home to about 75 boutique shops and over 20 enormously popular cafés, bars and restaurants.

    most bars and restaurants have alcoholic beverage licence

    Open daily 10am-12:00 midnight

    A time to relax

    by dkphabiyani Written Mar 9, 2013

    The Souk Madinat Jumeirah inside the Madinat Jumeirah Hotel, for an example, boats its own waterway to transfer people from its shops, bars and restaurants to the neighboring clutch of hotels. Located near Jumeirah Beach area, the Souk Madinat Jumeriah is an entertainment complex that includes a traditional Arabian souk (market) with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. Take a magical and relaxing Abra tour and meander waterways and wide open seascapes.

    More faux souqs

    by mikey_e Written Nov 28, 2012
    Entrance to Madinat Jumeirah

    Madinat Jumeirah is another example of the wonders of Dubai: yet one more fake Arab souq that is staffed almost exclusively by South Asians. As with Souq Bahar, Madinat Jumeirah has many different products that might be thought of as traditionally Khaliji, but that are now produced in South or East Asia. The Madinah is, however, quite spectacular as a mock-up of an old Arabian fort or souq, and is worth a visit just to see what Dubai is capable of. Don't waste your money on anything here, though, since most of it is produced abroad and only tangentially connected to the region.

    Madinat Jumeirah, or "Jumeirah City" is designed like old Arabia spread across over 40 hectares of landscapes and gardens. It consists of an architecturally interesting shopping mall, two luxurious five-star hotels, and a few residential areas. It is advertised to be the "epitome of Arabian hospitality in Dubai".

    Madinat Jumeirah is located along one kilometre of private beachfront adjacent to Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Burj Al Arab and Wild Wadi Water Park.
    Visitors can wander through Madinat Juneirah to admire the Arabian-inspired architecture or venture to one of the many vantage points for a view of the water.

    You can watch my 4 min 25 sec HD Video Dubai Madinat Jumeirah out of my Youtube channel with Mayssam Nahas - Lamoni.

    Many might point out that Madinat Jumeirah is completely artificial, but most would agree that it is extremely beautiful and very well done. Madinat Jumeirah is a luxury resort complex of three hotels, shops, restaurants, bars, and conference halls, all of which were built in the traditional Emirati architectural style around a manmade lagoon by the beaches of the Gulf. The whole complex has a relaxing atmosphere with unobstructed views of Burj al-Arab. The shopping area is designed to look like a traditional Middle Eastern souk and contains shops that are focused on eastern arts and crafts. Madinat Jumeirah is well worth a visit especially at night when the lighting is fantastic. Go there to shop, to have dinner or a drink, or if you can afford the luxury stay at one of its three luxury hotels.

    Madinat Jumeirah promenade

    This is definitely one of the most beautiful place in Dubai. It consists of shopping market for local arts/crafts (Souk Madinat Jumeirah), restaurants/cafés, amphitheatre, pools, fountains, and some resorts/hotels. All are built with local Arabian architecture and beautiful landscapes.

    So if you want to look around for local arts/crafts, or indulge yourself at nice restaurants/cafés, or just want to relax while seeing the views including the infamous Burj Al Arab from near distance, then this place must be your first choice.

    Free entrance to the complex. However some areas like beach side are restricted for hotel guests though.

    Madinat Jumeirah

    Madinat Jumeirah is located in Jumeirah Beach road. Next to Burj Al Arab. And just 5 minute away from Wild Wadi, water park.

    Since Souk Madinat Jumeirah (market) is open, Madinat Jumeirah is no longer cozy hotel with Arabic traditional style architecture, but also a recommended place to visit for shopping lovers with bazaar-like atmosphere.

    A variety of shops, restaurants and cafes are here, also wine bar and nightclub. Shopping in the Souk will more than shopping, since many of visitor can not resist to pose for the pictures or capture architecture detail. Outside the Souk, visitor can enjoy breathtaking scenery of Madinat Jumeirah. Dhow cruise in the back side of hotel (sorry, the cruise only for the hotel guest), hang out in the cafes or….just walk around.

    From outside, you will be able to see the contrast of traditional Arabic style architecture of Madinat Jumeirah and modern futuristic of Burj Al Arab.

    The best time to visit Madinat Jumeirah is in the afternoon (before sunset) and evening time to see the dime light and light effect reflected by Burj Al Arab.
