Stroll along Dubai Creek, a natural feature around which much of the city has sprung up. Follow the boardwalk to admire sights of some of the city's most iconic buildings, or take a ride across to the other side for a new perspective on the stretch of water and the developments that line its banks. Hop on a water taxi to access the more traditional side of Dubai on the opposite bank, featuring may popular souks (open-air markets) and other cultural attractions--you'll see how the creek that once divided the city now, in many ways, brings it together. Dubai Creek is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Dubai Edition.

  • Especially in the evening is worth the visit of the Creek. Inlet, Creek cuts deep through Dubai's oldest neighborhoods. The souks and the sights are not far from here. A crossing of the Creek with one of the small boats is a special experience and costs almost nothing. Evening you should enjoy it in one of the many restaurants with views of the Creek. Here you can the wooden barges seen everywhere with E-Waren to Pakistan or India break and come back with fruit and vegetables.

  • We have seen the whole Creek nicjt, but it is basically just a small river that runs in a city.

  • Dubai Creek Harbour is at the heart of a bold new vision for Dubai. A fusion of creativity and innovation that will define the future of living and further enrich this great city
  • Like everything else in Dubai this glitters. You have a panoramic view of old Dubai exactly the way it looked many years ago. You are in a dhow, sailing. A lovely night time experience.
  • You must visit the creek if you’re in Dubai. You take boat rides , though a small round, it’s beautiful to see the city’s light reflect into the water and then your boat goes over it! It’s just pretty! On the sides you have food stalls and stalls selling shoes, clothes and souvenirs.
  • Beautiful place. Cycling and RTA boating facility available. Nice sidewalk.
  • Great place to people watch. And the abras sailing back and forth is mesmerizing to watch, like dancers following the rhythm. Abra fare is cheap as well. And although a bit touristy, I had not feel harried here. This place is definitely a must-visit when in Dubai.
