You’d be hard pressed to find a more colorful and aromatic market than the Spice Souk in Dubai. There, you can find spices, fragrances, and herbs coveted in places around the world. A variety of household goods, rugs, textiles, and artifacts are also available for sale at the Spice Souk, ready to be purchased by shoppers with the savvy to haggle down to the best price.
We highly recommend a visit to the souk. The volume of trade at the marketplace has declined over the years, thanks to the proliferation of large stores and supermarkets—your visit could help preserve a piece of Arab heritage.
