Dubai Water Canal, Dubai

4.4
#3 of 9 in Nature in Dubai
See the city's skyline from Dubai Water Canal, a waterway that meanders to the Arabian Gulf. Along the waterfront, you will find a range of precincts, with the canal cutting its way through one of the city's busiest areas. In addition to various facilities and public spaces, this massive development adds a lengthy cycling path and a running track, ideal for those looking to stay active. Several pedestrian bridges cross the canal, allowing visitors to make their way to the other side at key points, allowing for the enjoyment of the views and a chance to see the vessels passing just underneath.
