Buy dates#15 of 74 things to do in Dubai
When making a list of souvenirs from Dubai, don't forget to include dates into it. This juicy, golden fruit has a bunch of useful properties. Nowhere else in the world will you find a better choice of dates' varieties, but in the UAE. About one fifth of the world's yield of dates is harvested here.
In addition, for the thousand-year history of growing these honey fruit Arabs have invented many ways to cook them. Fresh, dried, dried – in the Emirates you will find dates glazed with chocolate, poured by honey, stuffed with nuts. They also make date jam and syrup... And this is not a complete list of the date fantasies of Arab chefs!
1 kg of dates costs 60 dirhams, but the range of prices is large enough and depends mainly on the variety. Finding dates is easy; they are sold everywhere – from the special date stores to shopping centers and markets.
