Additional information
  • Souk Al Bahar (translates as ‘the sailors’ market’) is a modern take on a traditional Arabic street market to be found on the lakeside by Dubai Mall and opposite Burj Khalifa.

  • Inside there are dozens of shops as well as several artisan stalls and plenty of restaurants and cafés. In the evenings diners can sit on verandas and watch the dancing fountains that play over the Burj Lake on the half hour.

  • Built in traditional Arabesque style, Souk Al Bahar is part of the Old Town which dates back to 2006. And since this is one of the most well-heeled districts in Dubai the goods on sale in the souk are rather pricey.

  • A broad footbridge over the lake connects the souk to neighbouring Dubai Mall.
