Oh how we regreted coming to this souk. The moment taxi droped us in front we noticed that was bad idea. Fake souk, boring and expensive shops, no souvenires. I you have been to real bazaars like in Egypt, Istanbul etc. you will think the same. It's not even nice enough to take a pictures. Ok, the part where you... More

This place gives stunning views of Burj Al Arab that's why its quite popular with everyone..Having said that you have have a small boat ride through its canal as well as do some shopping or chill in anyone of the cafe's located inside it. Must visit attraction in Dubai.

Good to visit - had a little boat trip around the "little venice" type canals with a guide to tell you about the location. Good view of the Burj Alarab from the boat too. Nice place to buy little gifts.

This review is from my experience back in September 2010, so I apologize in advance... I just want to share my opinion with all of you! I thought this was a wondeful place to visit... it's even prettier at night! It's got things like restaurants, shops and hotels. It's a really great location with pretty views. I'd recommend you come!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND tourists to visit this place. A popular place for locals. This place have stunning sights (I included photos I took when I visit that place). Have hotel, restaurants, and souk market where you can buy your Dubai/UAE souvenirs back home. added note: it's a walking distance from the open beach near Burj Al Arab and main entrance... More

Overall jumeirah is a successful development but not the Madinat. It doesn't work. It's a sanitised Disney version of an ancient souk. The goods are over priced rubbish as are the activities. A ride on an one of the traditional water taxis is AED80 where a ride on the real thing is AED1. I had a good but overpriced lunch... More

We are back in Madinat after several years, but the feeling remains the same, nothing authentic, expensive market and restaurants, nothing very interesting. We took a walk, we ate in an Iranian restaurant, food was good but price was too high, we probably paid the view on the Burj Al Arab. Too turistic to feel the good vibe.

Filled with polished sights and smells. Even if you have no interest in shopping, this is worth visiting to admire the architecture of the hotels in this resort area, and to enjoy the water taxi rides along the canals. Even though it's all artificial, it's extremely well done -- and there are schools of tropical fish in the canals.

Beautiful souk, not too busy and has a large variety of shops and products. Big mix of local and international things to purchase. Loads of places to stop for a bite and relax for a bit. Great photo opportunities.

Modern Arabic mall full of a wide range of shops restaurants and bars. The Arabic architecture complements the type of shops. Several jewellers . A canal passes through it with lots of water taxis available . Several canal side restaurants giving it great ambience. A five star hotel at each end of the development . A much nicer place to...
