Dubai // The inner suburbs //


Covering the area between the airport and the Creek, the suburb of Garhoud is an interesting mishmash of up- and downmarket attractions. The Deira City Centre mall is the suburb’s main draw, eternally popular with an eclectic crowd running the gamut from Gulf Arabs and Russian tourists to the many expat Indians and Filipinos who live in the down-at-heel suburbs on the far side of the airport.
