The Amazing Race Pit Stop Takes Competitors to the Souk Madinat Jumeirah

- Melanie Zieba,

During last night’s episode of the Amazing Race, competitors headed off to Dubai with the final pit stop of this leg being Souk Madinat, an area within the beautiful luxury hotel, Madinat Jumeirah.

The eight remaining teams at this leg of the race departed from Cambodia and headed towards Dubai where their first stop was to ascend the world’s tallest building, Burj Dubai; A great place to visit for anyone visiting the area.

After teams endured challenges such as driving around Dubai’s famous F1 track and building a snowman in the middle of the desert, they were eventually instructed to head to the Souk Madinat Jumeirah, where the last team to arrive would be out of the race.

The Souk Madinat Jumeirah is a colorful and vibrant space created to resemble a busy Arabian market.  With paths leading to open fronted shops and intimate galleries, the Souk is full of waterfront cafes, bars and restaurants, open plazas and is home to a 442 seat Madinat Theater. All of this is a part of the luxurious Madinat Jumeirah Hotel.

Surrounded by water, the Madinat Jumeirah Hotel is comprised of three separate properties: Al Qasr, Mina A’Salam, and Dar Al Masyaf. This resort is one of the most fascinating in the world where all you could ever need is under one location. We recently wrote about the Madinat Jumeirah’s turtle rehabilitation project.
