Dubai Spice Souk reviews
I stumbled upon the Spice Souk as I was making my way from Sabkha to the Old Souk. You can't miss it, as you have stalls upon stalls, all selling strong spices displayed in little conical mountains..... more »
This place is mentioned in lots of the tourist guides. It's quite a small area, just about a short lane, with almost all the shops selling the same thing, basically spices and some lamps and bowls... more »
A good market with lots of markets and can buy anything! As per most markets the vendors all in your face trying to entice you in for a sale. Best way is say "no" with a hand gesture of 2/3 fingers in downward motion & keep walking! But a good experience. Only a few public toilets in the area that are very far apart so be warned. Have fun
I found the spice souk to be rather interesting. Such amazing collection of spices and their natural aroma. Good place to buy spices, nuts and dates. I was happy I had a guide as the maze of shops was bewildering and it helped to have someone who could guide me on reasonable prices. It was an excellent experience to see so many different spices, fruits, vegetables and teas, one could spend a whole day in this Souk. Great cultural experience.
