The Souk Madinat Jumeirah is unlike most shopping destinations in Dubai. It combines luxury with tradition and hosts a wide variety of cultural fashion, jewellery and gift shopping choices with a Middle Eastern flavour. Designed in the style of a Middle Eastern labyrinth, the mall is filled with traditional stores reminiscent of an Arabian souk. Visitors can immerse themselves in the narrow, winding passageways scented with luxurious Arabic perfumes.
The Souk contains more than 24 different international restaurants, ranging from Indian, Persian, Asian and Arabic to Italian, French, and American style cuisines. Most dining outlets offer picturesque views of the Souk’s waterways, and allow guests to dine alfresco, from their beautiful outdoor terraces overlooking the canals and the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel.
In terms of entertainment, there is a lot on offer at the Souk Madinat Jumeirah, with gorgeous Abra tours along the water canals, outdoor performances at the Madinat Theatre, the on-site karaoke bar as well as the nightlife venues available as options for visitors.
