Al Satwa

Al Satwa, a wonderful neighbourhood in Dubai, is located just south of Bur Dubai. Traditionally, this area was inhabited by the Bloushi Trib. Now, Al Satwa is one of the busiest residential and commercial areas in all of Dubai. Particularly known for its retail stores that often take up large portions of skyscrapers, this neighbourhood is one of the best spots in the city to spend a day shopping. This area is full of colourful characters and interesting hidden shops; in fact, the intricacies of this neighbourhood were highlighted in the popular spoken word piece/photo-novella, Satwa Stories.

  • Spend a few hours in the Mercato Shopping Centre in Al Satwa, where you will find popular Dubai retailers and a wide range of specialty stores and restaurants.
  • Visit the Al Satwa neighbourhood in the early morning when the fabric stores first open to get great bargains on fabrics, textiles and clothing.
  • Take a break from the Dubai heat at the Wild Wadi Waterpark where you can cool off in the wave pool or on the waterslides.

Dubai has an impressive modern public transportation system that makes it easy to get to the Al Satwa neighbourhood without using a car. The best way to get there is to use the Red Line of the Dubai Metro and get off at the Business Bay station, in the centre of Al Satwa. This neighbourhood is known for its ramshackle shops and winding hidden alleyways, so the best way to explore is on foot, which will allow you to pop in and out of shops and restaurants as you wish.
