Spicing up your trip to Dubai with a visit to the souks is a must. Part of Bur Dubai, the old part of the city, a boat ride across the Dubai Creek will take you to Deira. The gold souk (souk means market in Arabic) is blinding; it’s not the world’s largest gold market for no reason. Walk down to the next block, into the narrow lanes of the spice souk, which might give you a Gariahat-meets-New Market feel with the haggling and bargaining all around.
