Overview Coming to Dubai on business? Chances are it will be in Deira. This important commercial neighbourhood combines the old with the new to create a bustling, exciting neighbourhood favoured by young professionals. The roads are congested during rush hour, though, so use public transport.
What can I do here? If you’re looking for the authentic, traditional Dubai, you’ve just found it. The Gold and Spice Souks, 2 local bazaars, show what the Emirates is all about: luxurious, quality craftsmanship and exotic eastern spices. Another must-visit is Deira Fish Market – a sea of fresh, affordable fish caught the same day.
