In the heart of one of the most touristy areas of Dubai, along the creek, lies the unmissable souk Al Kabeer. Now entirely geared toward tourists, it's the perfect place to trade I Love Dubai t-shirts, Indian or Pakistani cashmere scarves, and other souvenirs from your stay in the UAE.

Al Kabeer souk is located on the south shore of Dubai Creek, midway between the Fort Museum and the main abras station. There is a pedestrian street covered by a large wooden frame, from which branch other adjacent streets.

The souk is open every day. On Fridays, most stalls open late in the afternoon.
