North of Dubai Creek
, this is one of the oldest parts of Dubai and home to its many colourful souks and markets, like the Gold Souk
, Spice Souk
, and the Deira Fish Market
. The Corniche winds its way along the waterfront and is a wonderful place for a walk, as are the labyrinth of narrow lanes leading to the souks. Deira is also the location of many modern businesses, malls, and entertainment centres.
