This blog post is a short photo blog of our recent visit to Dubai Creek’s GRAND SOUQ DIERA (the OLD DUBAI City Centre). It is where we ride the abra (at 1 AED per ride), a boat going to the other end of the souq and been greeted with a big tourist crowd also exploring the market. We found the Gold souq, souvenirs of all sorts, a pretty porcelain and hand crafted design plates, colorful spices, shawls, magnets and all other crafts plus more!
It’s actually my second time here, and yet this time, I feel like I belong more than just a tourist from Abu Dhabi. This time I am a tourist of my own city as I become a Dubai resident. Much of the shops/stalls around has quiet high prices so you must know how to haggle. And yet we actually didn’t buy anything. Our main purpose was just to get that glimpse of the old city, the souq, the gold, the abra ride and more!
Grand Souq Diera – EXPLORED 2.0!
Cheers to more Dubai sites to visit! :D
