UAE Area Guides: Dubai

Al Qusais Area Guide

Nothing is impossible
“We, in the UAE, have no such word as “impossible”; it does not exist in our lexicon. Such a word is used by the lazy and the weak, who fear challenges and progress. When one doubts his potential and capabilities as well as his confidence, he will lose the compass that leads him to success and excellence, thus failing to achieve his goal. I require you, youth, to insist on number one.”
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE

LET'S GO

Al Qusais or Al Gusais is one of Dubai's older communities, located in the Deira area towards Sharjah. It borders Hor Al Anz and Al Twar and is further subdivided into residential and industrial zones.

The community is also adjacent to Dubai airport making it very convenient for regular travellers.

That said, it is not the most salubrious or modern of areas, with new Dubai having taken hold of the city's wealthier citizenry and the sky rise towers to house them. What the community lacks in terms of glitz however it makes up for in affordability, a wealth of schools, cheap eateries and down to earth living.

No one is going to be inspired by a visit to Al Qusais, but your wallet and perhaps soul will feel sweet relief from Dubai's shinier, more demanding locales.
