Captivating views over the creek. It's a must to catch a small ferry boat over to the souks but be prepared to jump on board. Barter for materials or diamonds in the souks. Prices are at least 75% lower than in the UK! Don't forget to visit the old town which is less touristy. Extreme heat beware to go in... More

I really enjoyed visiting the Creek, and pretty easy to get to via metro! Only costs 1AED (16p) to get to the other side of the river to visit more of the souks! It's a very touristic area and as you can imagine there are just as much, if not more international goods being sold, but still nice to explore,... More

As part of our half-day tour of Dubai, we rode a private abra along the creek. Refreshing to say the least. Recommend!

Dubai is just Fake but nice Fake ;) Creek is just the place where you are tempted by Fake production from China (LVMH, CD, Jacobs, ...) at every corner, every boutique. Most are even hidden and you must fellow sales people in (fake) apartments discovering large apartment full of copies... I just cannot buy fake so lose of time. Creek... More

Booked a dinner cruise for two families last week to 'chill' out on the creek with Al Faris Cruises. One family from London who wanted to thaw in Dubai and the other residents wanting to cool on the creek in peak summer. The Cruise started on time, the food was good and the Tanora dancer who entertained during the fag... More

We got the morning train down to Dubai creek and then walked along the river to find a water taxi. The trip along the river was fascinating and our guide was friendly and informative. He was good enough to discuss how to get to the souk and where to find restaurants for lunch. I think that this service is really... More

Well worth a visit around the gold and spice selling areas, then you can take an hour water taxi ride for £20.

It is a pity that most tourists miss this area. By far, this is Dubai. If you visit the UAE and you want to feel the middle east, you must visit the Creek, take an Abra and visit the souks.

The cruise is good, especially at night, but the food and the atmosphere may not be what everyone expects. The spinning dancer was the best part of the cruise. Otherwise seeing the architecture and the areas that you may not otherwise get to see are interesting but I could see how some may not enjoy this.
