On our second day in Dubai we visited the oldest part of the city: Deira. In contrast to the modern parts of Dubai, you can find more historical, multicultural and traditional places in Deira, such as the markets and souqs, Al-Ahmadiya School (the first and therefore oldest school in Dubai) and Heritage House (a courtyard house, which offers insights into Dubai’s history and culture). After having crossed the Creek with an abra (water taxi), we started our walking tour at the Spice Souq, where you can buy among others a lot of great spices, tea, waterpipes and viagra (also for women! :D). Heritage House and the Al-Ahmadiya School were closed due to Ramadan, that’s why we finished our tour in the Gold Souq and had some dinner afterwards.
