Al Satwa: The not-so-hidden Gem


“Parang ‘Pinas lang…”, is what a first time Filipino visitor would say when in Al Satwa.

Satwa has grown to be a vibrant community which serves as a microcosm of Dubai’s multicultural society, but Pinoys have a special liking for the place. It is home away from home with everything that Dubai’s Filipino population loves, Filipino food, fashion, grocery and everything else, including a spanking new Joliibee!

The love though, isn’t confined to Filipinos, Satwa is generally loved for being laid back with strong vibes of a family-centric community.

Satwa is also very wallet-friendly and for has an unfathomable assortment of products, from sewing machines to plants, including second-hand goods.

Another striking uniqueness to Satwa is the established graffiti scene.


Satwa is a gentle reminder that Dubai isn’t all about the opulence.

When in doubt, go to Satwa!
