Covered Souk

Get lost in Deira€'s largest souk

Save to my Account

South of Sikkat al Khail Road stretches the downmarket commercial area popularly known as the Covered Souk – although it’s not really a proper souk, and neither is it covered. There are hundreds of tiny shops here, arranged around dozens of narrow alleyways and selling a mundane selection of household items, cheap clothes and textiles – you probably won’t find anything worth buying, but it’s a fun place for a wander, especially after dark when things get particularly lively. Expect to get lost at least once.
