Taking in a night at the souk
Across the UAE, the pastime of hunting for bargains in the colourful and animated souqs is still as popular today as it was generations ago. Souks enjoy a thriving following, both from UAE residents to tourists alike, in an environment that offers a chance to meet friendly merchants, haggle over prices, shop for that perfect fashion item or to simply do an evening’s browsing with the family. Whatever the reason, the sights and sounds of the market are always welcoming.
