Spice Souk

Take a deep breath when you step into the narrow alleyways of the Spice Souk, located in Deira. Savour the atmosphere and aroma of the past as you are introduced to the mounds of aromatic herbs and spices spilling from large baskets at every turn. You’ll find bags of spices, incense, rose petals and traditional medicinal products stacked outside each stall. If you’re looking to buy, bargaining is the norm in the souks – and even in shops you should ask for the best price, particularly when paying cash, which is the most common way to pay.
