This is an amazing place to experience the hustle and bustle of a busy market place. EVERYTHING you need you will find in and around this place. From clothes to electronics, accessories to perfumes, retail or wholesale, islamic/arabian to western styles this place has it all. With the gold souk just round the corner you can easily get lost as... More

If you go to Dubai, do not forget to shop here. This is where the abaya & perfume is very cheap. Price of abaya starts from DH40. My tip make sure you had enough survey before you choose which shop you want to buy your stuff. Do not focus on the shop inside the mall. Look out for the shops... More

We asked our Concierge in the hotel for a traditional Souk. You have to go to Naïf, was his Answer. It was not easy to find, we have to ask several persons to get the right direction. I got the feeling we were the only tourists. It was worth to go, compared to the typical touristical Souks this was a... More

Went to naïf souk and bargained for scarves and hair ties. Also got cheap but attractive mobile phone covers. Also picked up a selfie stick for 10aed. Found it cheaper in Singapore. Souk had lots of cheaper abayas and veils. Just outside souf was a cafe that served tea and sandwiches.

If you are on a budget or backpacking to Dubai and would like to pick out some clothing, jewellery, watches, electronics, bags or Arabian dresses, this is just the place! For a bargain market, this is very well organized and maintained. You might be overwhelmed by the discounts from the traders on select items. I suggest that you first take... More

If you visit Naïf Market in Deira be prepared to say No a lot. Every stall you walk past tries to pull you in for custom. It's a hustle & bustle type of place. Nothing like mainland Dubai where everything is clean and spacious. You get everything here really cheap compared to mainland Dubai but also be aware of the... More
