Ranked 24 of 79 sightseeing in Dubai

Narrow lanes flanked by stalls selling cinnamon, pepper, cumin, nutmeg, turmeric, dried fruits and all the aromatic delicious spices you would ever want are what make up the Dubai Spice Souk. Spices arrive here every day from India, Pakistan and Iran in large quantities and exported from here to all over Dubai. Products made using these spices are abundantly available to the curious shoppers and enthusiasts alike. Burlap sacks full of dried fruits and saffron at the store entrances attract passers-by, tempting them to invest in the spices. The souk is open between 10 AM to 10 PM from Saturday to Thursday with a 1 PM to 4 PM break and open between 4 PM to 10 PM.

Good place to buy variety of Spice and Nuts

Good place if you are good at bargaining for what you need as you can be easily taken for a good ride. Good variety for Spices and Nuts and more. Must visit to see the smiling faces when you greet them.
