The spice market lies in the narrow streets on the other side of the Gulf of Dubai in the part called Deira, and is one of Dubai's most important markets. The other side is easily accessible by the boat ”Abra“ for just one Dirham. The market can not be missed, it is directly across the road from the Abra moorings and typical oriental spice fragrance is everywhere.

Local merchants will lure you into their small shops to show off their range and persuade you to shop there, but they are not pushy, they like you to taste and try anything, and some will even treat you to local tea. It is not uncommon for them to exchange a couple of sentences in any language, because they are very fast learners.

The main items are all kinds of spices, especially saffron, vanilla and curry. They also offer hookah tobacco including various flavours and accessories.

The ”Spice souk“ is the most ideal place to buy souvenirs for your loved ones. Definitely make sure to bargain! The vendors will be happy and also they exaggerate the price, because they already count with haggling in advance.
