  • in the evening it was time for a little walk around the city. They lived near the airport, so it was decided to visit the Clock Tower - one of the oldest monuments of Deira, and the whole of Dubai. The monument was rebuilt three times, located in the center of the road junction, symmetrical on all 4 sides. It is impossible to approach him without violating traffic rules. We didn't take any chances, admired it from the outside and went to dinner.

  • The Deira Clocktower is an icon, I have seen it since my childhood and it's a must see place if you're visiting Dubai. It's beautiful, it connects the classic and beautiful area of Deira to the other side of Dubai via the Maktoum Bridge. There are so many big and subtle changes made to this icon over the years, and it has always held a special place for me.
  • It's a very beautiful icon in the middle of Deira. It's in the middle of the roundabout and stands out from far, it looks really nice and pretty at night too. This has put Deira as one of the most liked areas and it's really calm and peaceful when driving past. If you want to go check it out I would recommend going at night as it lights up really nice.
