Souk Al Bahar reviews
Nice but lacks soul. Empty with no character. Nice to browse but rather go to the traditional souks. Clean and well kept. On the other side of the Dubai Mall. more »
Located across a bridge from Dubai Mall, Souk Al Bahar is a much smaller and quieter experience. Time Out Market has recently opened and offers a great range of food options and is a licensed venue..... more »
Traditional Arabic style mall linked with Dubai mall. Carpets, souvenirs and lifestyle shops are here. Having dining restaurants with water front. Atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxing. Must visit place.
Blending the classic with the contemporary, Souk Al Bahar, the “sailor’s market”, is a step back in time to the wonder and allure of old Arabia. Situated in Downtown Dubai’s beating heart, it is enchantingly Arabesque – a lively marketplace that offers the city’s residents and tourists alike an enthralling experience of shopping, entertainment and dining in intriguing contrast to The Dubai Mall, to which it connects via a bridge that spans the breadth of Burj Lake
