Dubai Meanderings: Madinat Jumeirah

Madinat Jumeirah was recommended to us by our friend Nicky as one of her favorite places in Dubai.  We took the bus, but got off one stop too early.  We ended up at a luxury hotel resort and wandered around the grounds, trying to find our way to the souk.  It was fun just walking around, enjoying the property and the views.  Eventually we found what we were originally looking for, the souk that was designed to look like an ancient Arabian marketplace.  We ate dinner, did some window shopping and admired the ambiance.

The iconic Burj Al Arab stands tall in the background, often voted as the world’s most luxurious hotel. The cheapest rate we could find was $1,900 per night. Their most expensive room averages $24,000 per night. Ouch.

After walking around for almost an hour and a half, we finally locate the old souk marketplace area.
