There’s no way you can leave Dubai without having visited at least one of its famed traditional markets. Deira is home to the district of covered souks, which has a distinct Indian feel to it which gives it its nickname, Little India. The multitude of stalls selling textiles, spices, foods and jewellery create a sensory overload and it’s difficult to know where to look! Once you get into the swing of it, the friendly bartering and careful sifting for unique goods is all part of the experience! Two particularly popular examples are the Gold and Spice Souks, where you can pick up crafted jewellery and sacks of incense and dried fruit at very reasonable prices.

If you fancy a weekend break away from the hectic pace and business of Dubai, the historical town of Hatta in the foothills of the Hajar Mountains provides the idyllic peaceful getaway. There are several exciting and fascinating attractions well worth visiting in and around the town, such as the Hatta Rock Pools, where you can sink into crystal clear springs along the riverbed and swim in a tranquil and safe natural environment. The Heritage Village gives visitors a chance to see what life would have looked like before the developments and modernisation of recent decades; there’s an ancient fort, examples of authentic mud houses and old public buildings.
