Dubai Creek, Dubai

4.2
#1 of 13 in Nature in United Arab Emirates
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.

    Wonderful and picturesque. Many choices of restaurants and shops in old Dubai, very good for souvenirs and diversified items, you have to negotiate otherwise purchase. By day it's ridiculously hot (yet super interesting) and night's worth for dinner and the milder climate. Valley crossing of little boat to cross the river.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
