shopping souks Naif Souk
Naif Souk
Updated on 05 July 2018

Once a camel market, this is one of Dubai's oldest souks. Today, tourists can buy anything ranging from leather goods to souvenirs, but it is best known as the place for getting abayas (black cloaks worn by Arab women) at reasonable prices. The next most popular item in this market is electronics.

Tip: Make sure you bargain with shopkeepers. The best time to visit Naif souk is after sunset when the area comes alive.
