Dubai Creek, Dubai

Water Body · Pier / Boardwalk
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 Edition.

  • Dubai creek is a lovely mix of new and old Dubai. If you want to set Dubai before all the gleaming towers were put up. The place can be a bit touristy, not quite as touristy as new Dubai, but this is the place to go for old style Dubai buildings. There's a large South Asian community based here, so plenty of restaurants, temples and shipping catering to those tastes. Don't forget to use the ferry boat to get between the two banks of the creek.
  • It is very busy and full of atmosphere.… Its a decent place to spend an evening if you have some time. It can get crowded so please plan accordingly. The night Dhow Cruise on the Dubai creek is a nice experience.
