– About Dubai Old Town

Traditional markets, authentic meals and cultural experiences await in Dubai’s historic areas. Journey into Dubai’s past with a visit to the heritage district located on the banks of the Dubai Creek. This neighbourhood is home to some of the city’s finest cultural gems. If you explore, you’ll find XVA Art Gallery that showcases contemporary Arabian works, and the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, where visitors can learn more about Emirati traditions.

Merchants from neighbouring countries would sail in to peddle their wares here and today, gold, perfumes and textiles are still sold in the storied markets of Deira. The greatest sensory feast comes from the Spice Souk, which is alive with vibrant colours and aromas of some of the world’s most prized spices.
