Old Dubai (Deira & Bur Dubai), Dubai Overview

Located right at the heart of Dubai, is an ideal place to get a glance into the deep-rooted culture of the region. Bur Dubai is the oldest part of the emirate adorned with fascinating traditional Arabian houses, dotted along the Old Iranian neighbourhood near Shingdagha district waterfront. One can also explore the amazing Dubai Museum and vibrant Textile Souk.

Located on the other side of the creek is not so old neighbourhood of old Dubai called District of Deira. It is the hub of traditional commercial activities of the emirate carried on in the numerous conventional souks such as Spice and Gold souks. Also known for well - preserved historical sites, the place is a heart of heritage and culture offering great Arabian authentic food. The best time to explore the souks is in the evening from 17:00 onwards when the place is bustling with people and glittering with lights. Most of the market places open around 10:00 and close by 13:00 to avoid scorching heat and reopens in the evening.
