Dubai Creek, Dubai
(4.2/5 based on 6,000+ reviews on the web)
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 world travel planner, Dubai Edition.

  • The creek effectively divides Dubai and is an excellent location to visit. The souks and market areas are close by as is the old town of Dubai and strip across the creek is an experience in itself.
