Buy Yourself a Camel at the Friday Market

Looking for an authentic souvenir from the Emirates? Then why not take home a camel?

No, not the larger than life camels that push you out of your tent but these ornamental ones (pictured) that fit nicely in your bed.

These cute camels come in three sizes at the Friday Market:

Large: Dh15.00

Medium: Dh10.00

Small: Dh8.00

At that price you’ll want to take home an entire caravan of camels for the children and the grandchildren.

Image: Camel or جمل jamal in the Arabic. These will remind you of the camels you can see on the way from Dubai to Fujairah. Check out my directions to see where they are most likely to be spotted soon after leaving Dubai and then on the back roads of Dhaid.
