Perhaps I’m missing something. This constantly crops up on travellers lists of top things to do in Dubai, but I just can’t see it. It’s very quiet with pseudo market stalls and pseudo traditional shops. Perhaps after the amazing experience of the Dubai Mall it...More

Across from the hustle and bustle of the Dubai Mall is the much smaller shopping and restaurant complex of the Souk al Bahar. It is styled on rustic Arabic charm and is a welcome place of calm. Worth a visit.

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.
