Naif souk located in Baniyas area where you can find a lot of things from clothes to electronics. Cheap to mid range and high end fashion. If you are looking for local attire and souvenirs you can definitely visit Naif Souk.

We found this very chaotic. Most shops selling the same kind of things... abayas scarves ladies footwear. However if visiting Dubai it doesn’t hurt to pay a visit.

This place is worth visiting to get a taste of old Dubai...most of the stuff is traditional clothing for ladies. Worth a brief visit.
