Fish Souk of Dubai offers an excellent selection of seafood; besides, the market itself is a flamboyant and lively place to visit.
Fans of sea food will definitely like vast range of Dubai Fish Souk: shrimp, crab, squid, lobster, blue lobsters, oysters, various ocean fish and even sharks. The market is quite lively, and you won't see salesmen here just sitting and waiting for customers, they're always busy scaling and gutting fish.
Besides that, at the market you can find different household goods among which there are medwakhs – small pipes for smoking that are quite popular among locals. You can also buy tobacco for medwakh here.
If you come to the market early in the morning you’ll surely get the freshest fish, but if you come here late in the afternoon, you can get a real bargain.
