Dubai & Abu Dhabi city guide

Dubai & Abu Dhabi - Deira (Chapter)

7th Edition Sep 2012

This is the Deira chapter from Lonely Planet’s Dubai & Abu Dhabi guidebook.

Deira feels like a cross between Cairo and Karachi. Dusty, crowded and chaotic, it’s a world away from the slick and sanitised city piercing the clouds at the other end of town.

  • take in the souqs: spicy aromas at the Spice Souq, glittering gold at the Gold Souq, pungent Arabian attars at the Perfume Souq and a glimpse of expat life at the Deira Covered Souq and the New Naif Market
  • maps
  • enjoy an intriguing look at the culture and lifestyle of old Dubai at the Heritage House
  • transport
  • cross the Dubai Creek in a traditional abra (small boat that serves as a water taxi), enjoying an atmospheric journey unchanged for decades
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Explore Deira, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Sleeping, Shopping and Sports & Activities.
