Souk Madinat Jumeirah
Holiday Travel Guide

Shop, eat and drink at this picturesque waterside shopping complex known as the “Little Venice” of Dubai.

Discover a shopper’s paradise at Souk Madinat Jumeirah, a labyrinth of shops and eateries near Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach area. Located within the Madinat Jumeirah, a vast hotel and entertainment complex, the souk offers a great range of options for shopping and eating. A “souk” is an Arabian market or bazaar and although this one is geared towards tourists, it manages to conjure an impressive ambience and a tasteful variation on the traditional market theme. Take in the sights and smells of the marketplace or enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants.

Souk Madinat Jumeirah has been labeled the “Little Venice” of Dubai on account of the charming canals that line the area. If you are staying in one of the neighboring hotels, reach the souk by complimentary “abra” (water taxi). Travel along miles of canal in a traditional wooden boat and sail past banana trees, picturesque palms and iconic Arabian architecture. Visit the souk at night, when the lit-up canal casts the whole scene in a romantic half-light.

Disembark onto the shore to wander the lantern-lit walkways and avenues of this Arabian-themed complex, which sprawls along the waterfront with views of the impressive luxury hotel Burj Al-Arab in the distance. The mixture of shops combines modernity and tradition in true Dubai fashion. Shop for international brands alongside local wares and outlets. Browse through a great variety of antiques, souvenirs, perfumes and carpets in regional styles. With more than 75 stores and boutiques, the Souk Madinat is sure to have something to suit your taste.

Souk Madinat Jumeirah is located in the Madinat Jumeirah complex, which is 25 minutes from the Dubai International Airport. It is easily accessible by public transport. When you have finished shopping, unwind at one of the Souk Madinat’s many trendy restaurants and bars. You can also walk to the nearby Umm Suqeim beach and relax on the white sand overlooking the blue waters of the Arabian Gulf.
