The Spice Souk is right next to the more sparkly Gold Souk , and you'll probably be able to spell it coming – the whiffs of cloves, cinnamon, frankincense and shisha and other fragrant herbs and spices can be smelt from several hundred metres, especially if it's a humid day, which is Dubai is on the cards.

The souk's stores are laid out along narrow lanes, with all the spices in touch-tempting, colourful vats and pails, there are also dried fruits, if you're wondering what those giant seeds are...

This souk has become less popular and shrunk in size due to the popularity of sumpermarket shopping, but you don't get to haggle at the supermarket.

Al Ras Street, Deira
