Dubai in Pictures 8

Today I am making an exception by showing you a place popular with the tourists. The Madinat Jumeirah. It is a modern shopping experience based on the old traditional souks (markets). Even though it is aimed at tourists it has a lot of character and and we as locals love to go there too. Of course, if you live here you know where to buy all these things at a fraction of the price they charge at the Madinat.

Fashionable Arabic scarves

Shisha pipes at the cafe waiting for customers. You can order a shisha pipe from a menu, with the tobacco flavour of your choice. My favourite is mint.

Beaded and embroidered shoes.

Shisha pipes for sale

Copper trays. I love these!

The inside of the souk. It is really beautiful.
