The Dubai Souk is one of the UAE’s oldest, yet, still, most popular attractions for tourists who want to experience the timeworn atmosphere in one of Dubai’s most historic landmarks. It is also the ultimate destination for residents who want to spice up their meals, create DIY home remedies for illnesses, and even buy natural dye for their clothing or hair. The Spice Souk is located in the northern part of Dubai near the old fisherman’s village and is an extension of the Gold Souk. It is a beautiful landmark showcasing the UAE’s culture and heritage, while the vibrant colors of the spices illuminate the old village’s architecture and ambience, and the building and location manifest, as well as, display a unique antiquated aesthetic — all of which intrigue visitors to get a closer look into the historical side of what they may consider home — now, a modern metropolis.
