When in Dubai jump on an abra (old wooden boat) and head for the old souk in Dubai. it’s only 1 dirham. cheap, easy, fast and such a wonderful little trip on the water.
the old souk has everything you need and things you didn’t k now you needed. one street is all about gold and jewelry.
spices and different incense you can buy everywhere.
colors and vendors everywhere you look. Don’t forget to bargain !
