Markets and Souks
Souk is used in Arabic for ‘marketplace.' Historically, dhows from the Far East and India would offload their cargo and the goods would be haggled over in the nearby souks. Today alongside the spices, silks and perfumes you'll find electronic goods, souvenirs, clothing and household items
The Gold Souk on 4th Street in Madinat Zayed has many jewellers, including some of the Gulf's largest. Apart from the souk, you'll also find some big-name jewellers in the shopping malls.
