Emirati Culture and Insta-Worthy Places to Visit
Deira is an ode to the old Dubai world while still being perfectly suited to the modern-day traveller – you won’t need to trade comforts and luxuries to experience the traditions and history. Drop in to one of the restaurants and try some Karak tea for approximately 1 AED (roughly $0.25), and try out one of Dubai’s favourite on-the-go foods, the shawarma, when hunger strikes!
While the vibrant Dubai city is known for being advanced on many fronts, it also upholds its cultural heritage. Revered as the heart of Dubai trade for centuries on end, Dubai Creek is where traders would dock to bring rich brews of coffee, aromatic spices, gold and fragrant perfumes to the shores of Dubai many moons ago. You’ll spot fishing boats on the waters among glimmering views of the Dubai Skyline. Visitors can explore the historic Dubai Creek in Bur Dubai by crossing the canal on an abra, the traditional dhow boat or “water taxi” that’ll give you a waterway tour as you shimmy along the Arabian waters and marvel at the sights around you. You can even get a water taxi from here to other parts of the city, like the Marina. For those interested in learning more about the history of Dubai, the Dubai Museum is a popular tourist spot and ideal for information on everything related to the city’s history!

For a truly intrinsic experience of Dubai, you can visit the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, a key heritage site in the city. Allow the lamps to guide you through the alleyways as you explore the scenery while feasting on the traditional Middle Eastern cuisine on offer as you make your way to your next destination. You can also get the Emirati experience by visiting the Arabian Tea House, home to 150 types of teas! Sit at the stone-walled house with flowers blooming all around you as you snack on sweet and savoury delicacies.
Situated just a stone’s throw away is Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood, a district where you’ll find museums, souks, “hidden gem” coffee shops and more. You can pick up all sorts of goodies and souvenirs from the traditional souks, whether you opt for gold, perfumes, textiles or spices.
Enchant your senses with the sights and surroundings as you rove your way through the souks where you can try your hand at bartering, a cultural norm that underpins the ongoing trade today.
