The soul of the Middle East resides in its souks. Since ancient times, these centres of activity mesmerised visitors with their vibrant colours, interesting sights and alluring smells. At Madinat Jumeirah, a lively souk recreates this electrifying atmosphere with a dash of modern comfort and style.
Over seventy-five boutique-style, open-shuttered shops and galleries line its meandering pathways, while barrows and stalls spilling on to the lanes tempt visitors with exotic wares. From spices, oils, perfumes, souvenirs and handicrafts to clothing, accessories, jewellery and gold, there is something here for everyone. And to refuel after a busy day of shopping, guests can choose from a wide variety of restaurants, cafés and bars.
The beautiful Madinat Theatre, wide open spaces and surrounding water bodies add to the magic of this must-visit cultural landmark.
