The Souk Madinat Jumeirah: at once ancient and modern

shopping

Visit a shopping gallery with the look of a contemporary souk.

Directly inspired by an Arab citadel, the Madinat Jumeirah shopping centre picks up the aesthetics of traditional towns.

Contrary to what its name suggests, do not expect to see baskets filled with spices, dried fruit, or cereals here, as this contemporary souk is home to upscale shops, more than 40 cafés, bars, and restaurants, the Talise spa, and two renowned luxury hotels. Feel free to borrow an abra, a traditional wooden water taxi, from where you can admire the architecture and its beautiful windcatchers.

Many restaurants and bars line the waterways, havens for a break after shopping. Dominated by the elegant silhouette of the Burj Al-Arab and surrounded by canals, which earned it the nickname the ‘Venice of the Middle East', this luxurious yetunos tentatious mall becomes magical at dusk.
