Following up on my last picture from Gold Spice Souk, the Deira area in Dubai gives you the chance to experience the rich history and heritage of this ancient city by visiting the Gold and Spice Souq. You may then visit the Textile Souq by riding an abra, a traditional wooden boat used to cross the Dubai Creek, and enjoy a truly authentic local experience. 

This is definitely a must-go attraction of Dubai since it gives you a different experience far from the glitz and glamour of the new Dubai. If you can manage to dodge the maze of touts offering fake designer watches and bags, you can actually discover some good deals and bargains.
