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.

  • nice to see Bur Dubai & Dira, Gold Souk, spice souk, all what you have to do is to take abara(local boat) and that for 1 dh per persen! Nice place to visit both during day and night.. 
  • Stayed close to the creek and its is nice to see the sun set here. though it is away from the main tourist attractions. 
  • During our holiday in Dubai we have the gold souk in Diera visited. During this visit we have rented a small boat (Abra) and over the Creek dangers. This was a wonderful experience, you looked much authentic cargo ships. Also low there are many well-known buildings along the quay. An absolute must do
