Dubai old souq





Designed by AREX engineering consultant

'Souk' or 'souq' is the Arabic word, which stands for the market or place where any kind of goods are brought or exchanged. Originally, boats or dhows from the neighboring countries as well as India, Ceylon, China and the Far East unloaded their wares at the souks. Traders from around the world brought with them a variety of merchandise and "haggled" over the sales and purchases. In the modern times or today, souks are still markets but they are just a shadow of their former wonder. Dubai has a number of souks scattered all over the city. Dubai souks are bright, colorful, noisy and fascinating like any other market place.


The Old Souk/Textile Souk lies over the Creek in Bur Dubai. The bazaar consists of a long line of restored sand-coloured stone buildings, covered by a wooden roof in one area, and topped with attractive wind towers. The multitude of small shops here offer a massive range of fabrics (cashmere, silk, cotton, wool etc.) plus garments, slippers, souvenirs, and other goods.


The Textile Souk can be reached from Deira (Gold Souk, Spice Souk, Perfume Souk) by crossing the water on an abra or water taxi. Abra (traditional wooden boat) will cost only 1 dirham, is quick and the experience is fantastic. Alternatively travel by Metro on the Green Line and alight at Al Ghubaiba Metro Station or Al Fahidi Metro Station. The Bastakia Quarter and Dubai Museum are nearby and well worth a visit while in the area. It is also known as Cosmo Souk... just to make things more complicated :)

Cat Ladder

Cat Ladder Why they call it like this .....  Because  you will use it exactly like how the cat use it...... check this  video below It's a ladder used for working on a sloping roof, with a hook at one end and pads to spread the load. Cat ladders are delightful contraptions that usually affix the the outside of a house or apartment building, providing a cat with easy access to the outdoors from a home that’s several stories up. This interesting cat ladder is built with small ledges enabling the cat to go from one to the other, but the tabby prefers to scamper straight up the middle, climbing the ladder. This well-trained cat comes when he’s call and climbs the ladder on command. Why they call it Cat Ladder check video below..... Thanks
