Meena Bazaar is a fairly typical Indian overseas shopping district, the like of which can be found in many parts of the world. Located within walking distance from the Al Fahidi metro station, the area is roughly rectangular in shape and is a warren of streets and alleys, full of mainly small shops and stalls selling all manner of goods....

Roam around the market, haggle and you could end up getting some steal deals on perfumes and electronics.. One of the cheapest markets in Dubai!

Best place to get a bargain. Be prepared to barter with the ex pats. Great place for Asian shops and a variety of restaurants from south Asia. Best place to buy fabrics, ready made asian garments at very good prices.

Will say just an average market. A typical asian market. very crowded and having low cost cheap stuff. The only good part is that it has a few good Indian restaurants.

Donot Buy any electronic products. Touts everywhere. Niche Quality products. Only Food is fine. No price difference from India.

amazing 22k gold selection and lots of shalwar kamez and sari selection. quite dirty and narrow crowded pathways make it hard to maneuver a stroller. bathrooms are non existent, and if you find them they are dirty. leave the kids home and enjoy shopping. be sure to bargain, even at the gold shops

Nearest metro station: Al fahidi Meena bazaar is like a typical Indian market. Food stalls, textile market and a great Gold market. Although the number of shops in Meena bazaar is less than Gold souq, one can be rest assured of the purity of gold you will get in both the markets. Meena bazaar also has lesser variety of designs...

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
