We went to Souk Al Bahar after watching the fountain show. It was empty and the only place active were the restaurants. The shops were empty and the employees looked miserable. It was a nice stroll and nothing quite exciting apart from the buildings architecture...More

Nice and comfortable place for shopping. Siraj restaurant for Lebanese food was excellent but costly. The atmosphere was very comfortable.

The Souk Al Bahar is a nice souk with some good restaurants, but because of its location next to Burj Khalifa it is a tourist trap. The souvenirs on sale were overpriced compared to souvenir vendors in other areas of the city

Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa,
the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city
and resides in the prestigious Downtown development.
Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in
Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure
area housing not only the world’s tallest building,
but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide
marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with

Hi, it's very close, one Metro stn. Dubai Mall Metro stn to Business Bay, then you walk back a couple of block. You can even walk from Dubai Mall to Souk Albahar, maybe 30 min. Enjoy Dubai.
