Central Market Tours

15 reviews
Abu Dhabi’s Central Market is a contemporary, air-conditioned take on the traditional souk style markets. Located on one of the oldest sites in the city, the market is something of a paradoxical shopping mall, combining luxury shops and boutiques with food markets and local craft-based outlets. The old souk that once stood here was destroyed in a fire, and developers have rebuilt a chic shopping and leisure mall with an authentic twist.

Both the shopping experience and the architecture of the Central Market are certainly unique. The interior is influenced by the region, with wooden lattices allowing sunlight to bounce off fountains and seep into squares and courtyards amid hints of greenery. There is a good mix of restaurants, cafes, and shops to explore, with plenty of local goods and souvenirs to be found amid the many outlets.
