“Women's Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013 via mobile

This souk offers a wide variety of abaayas for moslim women. My wife was really delighted, and the key is to know how to bargain. We made very Good deals and i even found a shop where i could buy traditional abaayas for men,from Dubai and the Khaleej in general. Do not buy from the shopping malls as they are very expensive there, and another advice, learn how to negotiate.

“Great textiles and clothing souk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

Enjoy this very much. Numerous markets on top of the street level stalls offering many items. Haggling is key, altho we needed practice. It takes a skill to withstand their negotiating skills. Check the source of the products like scarves, as all too many come from China and / or made from rayon. This is key if you want cotton from India.

It's a good place for women
