The neighbourhood of Deira has a long and rich history within Dubai’s ever-changing architectural landscape. Established in the 1800s, Deira became home to Dubai’s founding families and was formed East of the Creek, the core of the city’s renowned commercial hub. Over a century later, the neighbourhood maintains its vibrant energy and authentic essence, featuring notable landmarks, such as Heritage House and Al Ahmadiya School. The distinct aromas of the Spice Souk, the sight of seagulls sitting atop fishing dhows and the dynamic sounds of a community full of life mark Deira as the anchor between Dubai and its cultural roots.
One of the city’s truly pedestrian-friendly neighbourhoods, Deira makes commuting easy with convenient, nearby connections to metro stations, bus routes and taxis dotted everywhere. Residents and visitors can easily explore its diverse food, shopping and entertainment venues, which vary from contemporary destinations like Al Ghurair Centre to more traditional locales found alongside the water.
