We managed to make our way to the Meena Bazaar on our last day in Dubai, it was an eclectic area with all sorts of goods you can purchase. We bought many souvenirs while we were here.

place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original
