Where to stay near Deira

Exploring Deira

Deira is the traditional commercial centre in the northern area of Dubai, located just over the famous Creek. This is where many top malls and hotels are at, including the massive Deira City Centre. Dubai International Airport is also in the Deira district and it is well connected by metro and traditional dhow boats across the Creek. Many visitors head here for the mall shopping as well as for the traditional souk markets, including the Spice and Gold souks near the waterfront.

The area is bustling at all hours so driving here is out of the question. It is very modern and up and coming, though you can still see slices of old Dubai near the souks and in the backstreets. The area is also strewn with notable landmarks, such as the lofty Deira Clocktower and the Maktoum Bridge. There are also many top hotels, such as the five-star Flora Park Deluxe Hotel Apartments.

Sightseeing near Deira

- Deira City Centre


This massive shopping mall and entertainment complex between the airport and the Creek is a major landmark and focal point in Deira. It is one of the largest and most popular shopping malls in the region, home to many brand name stores like Zara’s, Virgin Megastore and a Carrefour supermarket, and also comes with a great selection of fashion boutiques. There are also good restaurants in here, games areas for the kids and a multiplex cinema. The Sofitel hotel has bars and eateries, while the Ibis Deira City Centre offers cheaper accommodation.


- Spice Souk


Although you can pick up the same spices in the malls, the Spice Souk is a must for those looking for a spicy slice of traditional Dubai. The historic market harks back to Dubai’s beginnings and can be found to the west of Deira near the entrance to the Creek. Although hot and stuffy during the summer months, it makes for intriguing sightseeing, but be sure to dress appropriately (especially ladies) and always barter.


Transportation near Deira

Deira is fairly compact but is not very walkable due to the heat. Both the Red and Green lines of the Dubai Metro connect Deira with Bur Dubai. The Red lines comes in from the airport and makes a stop at the Deira City Centre shopping mall; use the Green line to get to the Spice Souk. There are also several bridges, tunnels and abra ferry crossings over the Creek—one goes from near the Spice Souk. Buses also run the main routes and head out to Jumeirah Beach.
