Deira is Dubai’s oldest neighborhood with many souks (specialty markets). We spent our first afternoon walking around and trying to stay awake from our fourteen hour flight…
The creek is lined by numerous floating restaurants that glide up and down the banks every evening as dinner cruises, but at around $75 per person, this was a little out of our budget.
One merchant inside the Spice Souk
The Gold Souk.. about 300 gold shops around this market
As we walked through the gold souk, random locals would come up to us and point at their watch, hoping to make a sale
Still at the gold souk. A few blocks away is the textile souk
Always impressed by the old buildings and architecture that surrounded us
