Deira is located on the northern bank of Dubai Creek and the winding streets here unveil the melting pot of
  different nationalities that have come to call Dubai home. On the store, ancient dhows load and unload with modern banks, hotels
   and office buildings for a backdrop. For travelers Deira is most famous for its traditional souks ( markets ), which
   bustle with shoppers at all timeds of the day. Deira Gold Souq is world-renowned as the largest gold bazaar in the
   world and the reason that Dubai has received the name " City of Gold ". Jewellery of all kinds is available in a
   variety of designs from traditional to modern and plenty of options to customise your own design.
   The Deira Spice Souq sells every imaginable spice with stalls overflowing with bags of frankincense, cumin,
   paprika, saffron, sumac and thyme as well as the fragrant oud wood, rose water and incense. The market was
  established in the 1830s and features restored wooden archways and wind-towers. for a much less touristy experience, head to the
  fish market where you will find loads of local action.
