Spice Souk




If you want to get away from the glitz and glamour of Dubai and want to have a taste of tradition, the place for you to head down will be the ‘Spice Souk’ in Al Ras, Diera. The souk whose history trace back to the trading history of Dubai is statergically located close to the Persian gulf, and has exotic spices from across the Middle East.

Early morning golden sun-ray play hide and seek through the wooden column  and thached  roof of the souk. I was there on a hot humid summer morning to capture this morning light sneaking into the narrow corridors, laying a welcome mat for the curious visitors.

“Light cannot enter a dark room without illumining it.” Matshona Dhliwayo
