Though all of the items in the Medinat Jumeirah Souq are double the price of those in the textile or gold souqs, the area is extremely pretty and home to a variety of upscale restaurants. Here, we found a pub to watch the Rugby World Cup final, and here, we had a dinner to celebrate the end of the semester. Additionally, it provides an excellent view of the Burj al Arab.

Burj Al Arab, commonly referred to as the world’s only seven star hotel.
