The Spice Souk is one of the most popular souks in Dubai. Its narrow passages are lined with small stores selling every herb and spice under the sun.
The air is filled with pungent aromas emanating from colourful sacks of cinnamon, turmeric, cumin, pepper, cloves, nutmeg, and dried fruits. Fresh stocks arrive every day, transported by dhow from countries such as India, Pakistan, and Iran.
The souk is open every day of the week. Opening hours are 10 am to 10 pm Saturday to Thursday (closed between 1 pm and 4 pm) and 4 pm to 10 pm on Friday.
