Hunt down bargain-priced designer labels and electronic gadgets on your Dubai shopping trip in the comfort of Dubai's over-the-top shopping malls.
Start your Dubai shopping trip with a cruise through the souks in Deira and Bur Dubai then seek out Dubai's famous shopping malls. These air-conditioned havens include BurJuman for designer labels on your shopping trip through Dubai. Wafi's has a glorious gourmet food hall and the massive Hall of the Emirates has an indoor ski slope and very own Harvey Nichols. In Jumeirah you'll find Arab fragrances and confectionery amid the Italian Renaissance finery of Dubai's Mercato. Stock up on Arabic handicrafts and gifts in bazaar-style Souk Madinat Jumeirah.
Get a taste for Middle Eastern markets in Dubai's souks on your whirlwind shopping trip. Bur Dubai's souk is the place for sari silks, curly-toed shoes and pashmina shawls. Follow the heady aromas over the Creek to Deira's spice and perfume souks, and discover that haggling is expected in Dubai's nearby gold souk. Get measured up for a suit in the souk at Satwa or bargain for leather and traditional home wares in Karama.
Take home a well-priced rug from Iran, Turkey or Kashmir on your Dubai shopping trip. Leave room in your suitcase for a souvenir shisha pipe, brass coffeepot or intricately patterned tea glasses. Get into the act to haggle over gold jewellery or heady perfumes in Dubai's souks. Target the shopping malls for tax-free cameras, watches, electronic gizmos and designer-label bargains to take back from your shopping trip to Dubai.
