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.

This area is mostly for Indian shopping. Lots of ready made clothes/ material shops, jewellers, mobile phones and dry fruit/grocery shops. We found that with the low rate of the pound things seemed expensive. here a bit of bargaining power is helpful. Be careful though if someone approaches you claiming to cure your diabetes or beer belly for some herbal... More

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.

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.
