Good way to cross the creek.

Quite a good way to see a bit of Dubai. Authentic, noisy and used by all and sundry. Close to the gold souk.

A dinner on a dhow in the evening is recommended. This takes approx 2 hrs and we enjoyed that really.

Dubai creek is a beautiful place. You can enjoy the scenic view from your yacht while having some food and drinks on the go.

To see Dubai- Bur Dubai & Deira at one time it is via an ABRA ride on the creek...it takes you from the mouth of the creek to the floating bridge in an hour, a leisurely way to see Dubai, the Dhows and waterway, all for 130 Dhirams. I always take our visitors on this little cruise. We eat pakoras,... More

The best part of the Dubai Creek is the old Dubai area. Here you can see glimpses of what Dubai used to look like.

We did a boat ride on the Dubai Creek and it was a fun, relaxing way to see the skyline, especially after the craziness of the Suq.

New attraction overshadows this old attraction you don't find much here other than some Cruise trip.

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
