Eons before the Dubai tourism department brainstormed the Dubai Shopping Festival, there were the original souks of Dubai that dotted the Emirate. Just like the malls that are slowly taking over the retail area today, the souks were the heart and soul of Dubai trade and economy.
have given over to cobbled and more spacious versions, but one element they yet retain is an old world charm.
One of the must-see and must-try Dubai City Activities, these souks are still the best places to get the best bargains and indulge in some authentically Arab grabs. The Gold Souk for instance, offers tourists and residents alike a selection of gold designs and craftsmanship that is more traditional as compared to the modern Westernized options sold at malls and showrooms.
The Deira Spice Souk and the Perfume Souk are tastes of the exotic you must savor when sightseeing Dubai. The spices and attars (perfume essences) sold at these places are headier and more aromatic then the ones found elsewhere. Some attar shops can even concoct you a signature perfume to suit your senses and personality, making it a unique souvenir to carry home (we happen to know some authentic perfume sellers who can do this).
As is common with all things Dubai, the Emirate happens to host therichest horse race in the world on an annual basis. The prize money for the Dubai World Cup is a whopping $21 million.
Horses and sports relating to them have been a Dubai favorite for a long time, thanks to the easy availability of Arab horses in the Middle East. Equestrian activities like horse riding, endurance, show jumping and racing are some of the best Dubai City activitiesthat tourists can indulge in during a trip to Dubai.
For businessmen and employees attending a Meeting, Incentives, Conference and Events program (MICE) in Dubai, equestrian pursuits are the perfect excuse to relax and enjoy the city.
