    This is not a traditional “open” souk, but a series of small shops selling gold and more gold. The array and quantity is stunning and worth a visit if you are interested in Jewellery and if you like to haggle for a bargain. It is located beside the spice souk so really a 2 in 1 experience.

    It's not the most spectacular boarding point. That one is on the shore of Bur Dubai. But this is also interesting. There are a lot of abra boats waiting for their customers, while others are constantly going back and forth on the canal. The price of an abra trip is only 1AED.

    This deserve a 5 stars!
    I’ve previously try to purchase a ticket from grouppon.com for Miracle Garden and after 3 attempts using 3 different cards I couldn’t purchase my ticket.
    Using this company to purchase a different ticket for different attraction I’ve asked if they can help. Is not only that they serve me IMMEDIATELY !!!!!! but they give me a cheaper price.
    As first time visitor in from foreign country to have the assistance that you need fast and delivered professional us a blessing. Thank you for all your support. I highly recommended to use all their services.

    This place is a must to those looking for abayas or thawb. Love the variety and the fact that every shop has styles/designs that differ from others. To those planning to shop till you drop, you can rent a porter for your bags or just bring a small wheeled bag to store everything and make commuting easy.

    An unrelated sidenote, my husband got scammed at this area for a facial product to remove dark circles/large pores. These guys are everywhere; same dialogues but different shops they will bring into. So please be aware and reject these guys when they say they have good intentions to help, not expecting any payment and to follow them to a shop that sells the product

    Medium sized mall considering it is in Dubai. Place is ok to browse for anything but luxury and nice to go to when you stay at Park Hyatt and want something else to eat

    It is one of the oldest and most popular malls in the city. The mall has several floors with a variety of stores and restaurants. The mall also has a theater, a bowling alley, and a family entertainment area. The mall is clean and well-maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. The stores are well-stocked and there is a wide variety of products to choose from.The family entertainment area is perfect for kids and adults alike. Overall, Al Ghurair Centre is a great place to shop, eat, and have fun

    The gym coach kuya dante is very helpful and approachable. The ambiance was so cool and the gym is not crowded. Pool and sauna are the best as well. I will always go back to this place.

    A very large, modern, clean, well-organized market. It has several distinct sections, of which the most spectacular for a tourist is the fish market. There are also several restaurants with outdoor terraces on the banks of the Dubai creek.
    Quite far from other tourist attractions.

    Great place for some souvenirs. Yes there's a lot of pressure sales people, but a simple "no thank you" was enough for most. Cool atmosphere. Make sure you do some research on prices of the spices you want to buy so that you can pay a fair price. Their first offer is most definitely outrageous and overpriced.

    Do some homework, and you'll enjoy the place.

    We visited the market to see a traditional market. I was left with mixed feelings, on the one hand there were interesting spices and traditional things, on the other hand there was also a lot of outright garbage. The sellers were not pushy. Overall it was interesting

    Good place, barely anybody in there, so you can have it all to yourself. The exhibit contains some very interesting personal objects of important Emirati women, lots of info about women's role in the UAE. The second floor has walls filled with poems (amazing!). The place has great energy. The lady at the entrance is also a great guide and she can answer many questions.

    All the district around here is so very interesting and a breath of fresh air from the skyscrapers of downtown or the marina.
    The little streets are full of charm with little shops with wonderful smells and the textile souk is just behind...it was the most highlight of the day!
