Everything you need to know about Dubai’s Old Souks

Have you been neglecting the old part of town recently?

Well, with so much going on around Old Dubai, including some of these awesome pubs and bars, you have loads of brilliant reasons to check out the city’s historical neighbourhood.

But, the main attractions that continue to reel in tourists and residents alike across the year are the old souks. Specifically, the Gold, Textiles and Spice souks, which can be ideal hunting grounds for the city’s haggling fans.

This week’s episode of Time Out Quick Guides is dedicated to the old souks, what you can find there, some nuggets of information and a guide to spending an afternoon meandering the souks, picking up a bargain and more.

If you’re looking to reconnect with this beautiful part of town, here’s everything you need to know.

It’s all part of the Time Out Quick Guides series, which gives you a handy, quickly digested guide to some of the city’s most important tourist attractions, and helps you plan your time in the city.
