Move over Bangkok, because floating markets is now a thing in the UAE too!

The market will be home to 17 different abra-inspired boat boutiques, each of them air conditioned, which means shopping can still be done there during the summer months.

Brands include art and fashion companies as well as food and beverage boats to keep you feeling full while you shop.

The idea was thought up by Dubai's Shaikha Maitha Hasher Al Maktoum.
