Dubai Camel Market

See the Dubai Guide ›
United Arab Emirates's insider take:

In the desert on the road to the neighboring emirate of Al Ain, the Al Lusali Camel Racing Club track and Dubai Camel Market offer a glimpse into the cultish world of camel breeders and their pampered charges. A champion racing camel can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars; the Dubai royal family keeps the tradition alive by offering large cash purses, and has also backed a new initiative to market camel milk and camel-milk chocolate. The souk sells camels, anti-spitting muzzles, hand-woven camel wool reins and decorative tassels, as well as miniature robot camel jockeys. (The robot jockey was developed a few years back after human rights organizations campaigned against the use of child jockeys trafficked from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sudan.) No need to join a tour, since many taxi and hotel limo drivers know the place.—Updated by Susan Hack

Market open daily from 7 am to 1 pm and 3 to 10 pm. Races on Tuesdays and Wednesdays 7 am and 3 pm.
