Dubai & Abu Dhabi - Diera (Chapter)
This is the Deira chapter from Lonely Planet’s Dubai & Abu Dhabi guidebook.
Hugging the northern side of the Creek, Deira is one of Dubai’s oldest and most charismatic neighbourhoods, a world apart from the sky-piercing towers of modern Dubai. Its biggest asset is its cluster of atmospheric souqs (spice, gold, perfume, fish, produce); a tangle of narrow lanes heaving with a cacophony of sounds and smells that bursts to life in the late afternoon.
- plunging headlong into the souqs for a sensory dose of Arabian Nights flair
- checking out Dubai’s first school, Al Ahmadiya, housed in an exquisite traditional building
- strolling down leafy Al Muteena St and stopping for masgouf (grilled fish) in an Iraqi restaurant
- restaurants & bars
