Textile Souk

Dubai's prettiest souk

Save to my Account

Occupying a prime Creekside location bang in the middle of Bur Dubai, the old Textile Souk is the prettiest in the city, with a long, carefully restored arcade of old coral-walled buildings topped by an arching wooden roof, offering welcome shade in the heat of the day.

This was once the old city’s principal souk and commercial heart, though its historic shops have now been given over to local Indian traders selling bright sari cloth, fluorescent blankets and the like, with a sprinkling of low-grade souvenirs thrown in for good measure – not a particularly good place to shop, but always good for an idle wander and a lively slice of Bur Dubai streetlife.
