Go with Kevin on an abra (small boat) across the Dubai Creek.
On the way he asks an Emirati guide how to barter for souvenirs and he receives a course in Arabic 101.
This short video in the Emirates Airline ads gives people a taste of what is wonderful and pleasurable about visiting Dubai and the UAE:
* Strolling around the textile souks and looking for a pashmina shawl or scarf to take home
* Buying some traditional Emirati clothes
* Following the scents of the spice souks
* The Creek is a good place to get a different perspective on Dubai.
The souks contribute to the atmosphere of Arabia and provide ample opportunities for buying souvenirs to remind you of the Dubai experience.
