THE DEETS

Naif Souq—meaning marketplace in the Arab world—is a place with more than 265 stores selling various goods from jewellery to clothing and even local food. Most importantly, if you are looking for souvenirs which you wouldn’t find at the airport, this place offers you a wide variety of items. Al Naif is also the homeland of most popular Mosque in Deira—Naif Mosque—first built in 1948. Not surprisingly, within the immediate vicinity of this Mosque, you can find a variety of shops and restaurants which are seriously worth stepping in to. The foot traffic and the cultural diversity in this area makes it the perfect portrait stop. Helpful hint: if you are interested in taking portraits of people, it is better to approach them and introduce yourself. Based on our experience, they will be more than happy to pose. Avoid sneaking a picture. This applies especially to women, as they often do not like to be photographed by strangers. Naif Souq is STOP 1 on the AL NAIF tour and STOP 2 on the STREET PHOTOGRAPHY tour.
