  • Gold Market (Souqs)

    Dubai Shopping

    The gold souk is more than 130 shops all jam-packed with a breathtaking choice of jewellery. The gold is generally 18 carat and sometimes 22 or 24, styles range from Indian to traditional Arab to modern Italian. In my opinion tourism has spoiled the souk somewhat - all the shops used to be crammed with traditional gold jewellery,...

  • Shops in Karama

    Dubai Shopping

    Home to a lot of Dubai's Indian, Pakistani and Filipino residents, the Karama neighborhood is always buzzing day and night. Terraced shops selling brand name rip-offs, sunglasses, T-shirts, sneakers, shorts, shoes and souvenirs stretch down the long main street -- you'll need a good half day to bargain your way through it all.

  • Al-Faheidi Street

    Dubai Shopping

    Either side of the Creek, the heart of Dubai, there are two of the older shopping areas - around Al Fahidi Street in Bur Dubai and between the gold souk & Naif Road in Deira. I prefer them to the ultra-modern shopping malls, the atmosphere is so much better, and there are plenty of bargains to be had, whatever you're buying. They are also much...

  • Mercado Mall

    Dubai Shopping

    Mercato Mall is in the upmarket beachside suburb of Jumeirah, and the style of the mall reflects that. It's designed to represent Venice - and considering it's a new shopping mall it's actually a pretty good interpretation of Venice. There are the usual designer stores, a supermarket, plenty of very nice food outlets, cafes & restaurants,...

    On the road from Dubai to Hatta you'll pass a string of shops all selling a variety of pottery and a very good selection of carpets. Perhaps fifteen or twenty shops, clustered together as is the custom here, and they are iron-roof, very simple huts really, but they have an amazing array of stock. The carpets are excellent value (you'll need to...

  • Money exchange

    Every time we've needed to change money we've found this shop offers the best rate. As you walk through the souk towards it you will pass other exchanges, so ask them their rate too, then simply choose the best if one of them offers a better rate than Al Mussabeh.By the way, be careful when you're shopping - the fifty dirham note is quite similar...

  • Ibn Battuta Mall

    One of the most amazing shopping malls in Dubai! A good range of shops of course, about 300 in total, but it's really worth visiting to look at the mall itself.

  • Which mall is the best

    Of the 3 outrageously huge mall, my favourite will be Emirates though it is not the largest. Dubai mall is the largest by floor space but that's it, only floor space. It's too huge with too few shops and if you want to get across from this side to the other the walk is too much.Ibn Battuta is a nice mall with great decorations as you can feel the...
