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.

  • Especially in the evening is worth the visit of the Creek. Inlet, Creek cuts deep through Dubai's oldest neighborhoods. The souks and the sights are not far from here. A crossing of the Creek with one of the small boats is a special experience and costs almost nothing. Evening you should enjoy it in one of the many restaurants with views of the Creek. Here you can the wooden barges seen everywhere with E-Waren to Pakistan or India break and come back with fruit and vegetables.

  • Amazing place for families. Great place for taking pictures
  • If you like to visit Dubai. Must visit this place. It's awesome.
  • Park in front of the creek and take a walk and you’ll find the abras crossing and small cafeteria where you can buy sweet tea for just one dirham. Sit people watching and enjoy the scenery. This is old Dubai at its finest. Been here so many times and I never tire of the atmosphere. A must see for my visitors to Dubai all year round! 👍😍
  • The perfect place to visit in the evenings. The old souk right on the bank of it is one to give you aesthetic pleasure. If someone wants to see that how Dubai used to be in past, they must visit this area. The abra ride has its own charm where you can get a ride as low as 1 dirham.
  • Nice place to spend with family.
