Souk al Bahar is the poor cousin on the shores of Burj Lake. It is a small kitschy mall, which wants to seem like a traditional Arabian shopping oasis. It has stores selling antiques (probably phony), Persian rugs (probably made in China), traditional clothing (one of the stores advertises Arabic designed haute couture), and quite a few restaurants. The restaurants are the best part, as several are very good, and have a great view of the Dubai fountains. We ate at 2 of them.
