Dubai Shopper's Paradise
For years, the more sophisticated centers in Dubai overshadowed Abu Dhabi's shopping centers. However, with the opening of new malls, Abu Dhabi has become a shopper's paradise.The major attraction is the Shopping Festival.
Abu Dhabi's shopping centers include state-of-the-art malls and traditional souks (markets). The result is an exciting combination of old and new, where the very latest retail delights exist with ancient family-run businesses that have been dealing for centuries. Shopping centers here offer a delightful experience to everyone on tours of Abu Dhabi.
Visiting a traditional souk is the easiest way to absorb you in the country's cultural heritage. In recent years, the range of goods sold in these shopping centers has witnessed a dramatic increase.
Generally, souks were divided into areas selling similar items and they were known by what they sold - such as the spice souk, the fabric souk, etc. But in recent times, souks have started selling everything from electrical goods to spare car parts.
