Well, this is a depressing tourist trap. Thankfully we were staying in the hotel so just next door but if I'd have paid for a taxi or tour to come here I'd be massively disappointing. Basically a small shopping mall full of souvenir shops!

Behind a modern-old-souk, we’ve found a peaceful place to truly enjoy. The parking lot is very handy, however, the shopping experience is a little pricey. Strolling through the souk, we've been rewarded with some prime spot view of the Burj Al Arab, near to Costa...More

It is worth visiting, I think the design is Moroccan. You can get very close to burj-Al Arab in one corner. I loved the river in the middle.

I visited this Souk 14 years ago and was so happy to be back! Much more comfortable and friendly than the Gold and Spice Souks and the environment is not pushy at all! Highly recommend a visit!

We had been recommended coming to the Jumeriah complex from many online sources extolling the virtues of riding the abra round the waterways of the hotel. Abdul, manning the sales desk for the tickets was the most unhelpful, unfriendly and surly person I have encountered...More

Most visitors make a point to go to the gold and spice souk, but don't miss Souk Medinat. We found great beaded handbags, jewelry and scarfs. This is also a great place for a leisurely meal by the man made canal.

So many reviewers mention Souks are terrible places, with many being hassled - NOT at Souk Madinat! This is a lovely way to wander around, stop for a coffee, or a meal by the beautiful waterways inside the gorgeous buildings which are very authentic -...More

Plenty of bars and restaurants in a really beautiful and relaxing setting. The waterways and lighting make it a really relaxing place to socialise, however it's also a great place for a night out (particularly McGettigans).

Authentic atmosphere, many shops and restaurants. I liked Folly on the top floor, Belgian cafe with live music in weekend and Lebanese restaurant. Also there is a big underground parking and no problem to find a taxi. Note that the prices for goods are higher...More

The Souk is about a 10 minute taxi ride from Burj Khalifa and very near Burj Al Arab. It is a modern take on the old souks and you can wear normal western summer dress. It is very nice. I did not go on the boats but heard... More
