Shopping Street, good for a bargain!!!

Crowded streets await you especially during the weekends. Makes up for good bargains as the competition is high in the area. Recommended for shopping and local delicacies.

Just across Dubai museum, we found the most fantastic small boutique, who were able to design a unique silk kimono in a very high quality. Next time we will go for designs in linnen, and some of the hand embroidery we saw the taylor was able to design, it was art at an fair price.

If you like gold and gems, then this is up your street, but, be careful you can get ripped off by thinking is going to be a bargain; it's not. Do your homework before you go on gold and gem prices.

Prices were not that competitive as other ''Little India'' locations around the world. would be a haven for vegan lovers as they can find ample food for themselves. Not much shopping if you are used to shopping in malls. Lined up with hasslers selling you fake watches, bags etc etc and also you can see numerous namecards of pimps stewn... More

We decided to visit Meena Bazaar as we were told that it was like a mini India in Dubai and so true it was! We went in the evening expecting it to be a little quieter but it was absolutely buzzing! The sights, smells and sounds were amazing. We couldn't believe we were still in Dubai! If you like Indian... More

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
