The Famous Souks of Dubai

The Famous Souks of Dubai

"Don't listen to what they say, go see."

In today’s day and age, everything has shifted online, dresses are shopped online, gadgets, books, food, everything. In fact, marriages are no more made in heaven, they are designed, schemed, and tailored on online portals. The world has come closer for sure, everything has become accessible and has taken life’s comfort to another level altogether. Keeping all of that aside, I guess I still miss those times when we had an array of lanes where commodities could be touched and tried, unlike the zooming of fabrics online to judge the material. It’s more like, traveling the world through your system but it’s so much more fun to actually see those places, to stand on that ground, to smell the air, and to physically experience life there. The idea of small towns, intricate lanes, wooden bridges, handwritten letters, a cycle ride on a rugged road, in short, things from the past fascinates me to date. If you too like such old times, you should definitely make it to the souks when you visit Dubai. Get your Dubai visa and set off to this mystical land where you can handpick the spices, fabrics, gold, examine it with your naked eyes, wear it, smell it and just take in the entire feel of the authentic place.

The Textile Souk

Name a material and you will find it. Indulge in the act of fabric hunting. I’m sure, you will be fascinated and enlightened by the variety that there is, in the textile souk. Walk shop to shop, let your eyes behold the beauty on display. The market has been renovated but it still has a touch of historic times. If you thought that they only have fabrics of all kinds, then you are mistaken. Not only do they have a variety of materials, but also dressmakers who can design and recreate trending fashion, and make magic with their skillful hands. I bet, you won’t leave the place until you literally drop while you shop. Enrich your experience, and luggage when you visit Dubai.

The Gold souk

No wonder, Dubai is called the city of Gold. Everything that glitters in the Gold souk is not just gold, but beauty. Your eyes will drop in exhaustion but the display shall not cease. If you intend to buy two, you will end up buying ten. Don’t worry, you will always have offers to your benefit. Just make sure, you have entered each shop, for you wouldn’t want to regret it later. When you’ll go back, you’ll have lots to exhibit.

The Spice souk

Food, then on, will never be the same. Your palate will appreciate the taste, and your taste buds will experience a new high. Do return back with a lot of spices, for your mundane life needs that little spark.
