Slip beneath the arches of the wind towers on the Deira side of the Creek and nip into Dubai’s largest and oldest souk. Here you will find a bit of everything, from toys to spices.

CP Tip: The best way to navigate is to ramble through the alleyways of the Spice Souk, heading roughly north to reach the Fabric Souk. Keep going in the same direction and you will come to the Gold Souk. Keep an eye out for the perfumeries selling fragrant oils, perfect for prezzies.
