See the Textile and Spice Souks of Dubai UAE

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.
