Staying in Dubai

Central stays are always a good idea. Are you looking for a hotel near Palm Jumeirah? With plenty of options including the Avani Palm View Dubai, stay in the heart of the city which is a stone’s throw away from many other notable attractions including the Souk Madinat Jumeirah.

What is it?

The Souk Madinat Jumeirah is the perfect blend of modern and traditional. This centre of trade and commerce is the perfect introduction to anyone who is not familiar with the more old-school means of bartering which is through bargaining and haggling!

What can you expect?

From the amazing fragrances of spices, perfumes, and teas to plenty of fine silks and materials on display, walking into this souq is most definitely an assault on the senses – but in the best possible way! Make your way through a maze of alleyways to only find that sometimes getting lost is the only way to uncover hidden gems!
