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.

  • Booked a low cost boat, but still enjoyed the journey in creek. Dont expect a super food, but you can enjoy the beauty of creek. Also the boat will provide different items like dance and etc which will vary with respect to cost.
  • Nice hotel rooms, conveniently located 12 minutes from DXB international airport. Very helpful staff. Clean and quiet hotel with a nice view from the rooftop pool. I particularly enjoyed my premier league games with the complimentary Happy Hour drinks served from 6-8 PM daily.
  • It's jewel of Dubai, with both sides which developed culture of Dubai.. In old times people of Dubai n bur dubai connected through boat services in these areas..
  • Very good view of lighted Dubai during night across the creek. Good place to go on a cruise. Good experience
  • Totally revamped and a new look to old dubai. Very well built
