My family and I always visit the Dubai Creek. As my parents used to live here we find it one of the places in Dubai which hasn't changed too much. It is really nice to go to the creek around sunset and hire out an Abra to have a ride on. If visiting Dubai and want to see something different... More

The best way to see Dubai creek is to take a cruise on one of the many Dhows an hour cruise will see you taken slowly down and back up part of the creek. As you proceed down the creek you will pass things like the Dubai Museum on your left and the "old Souk" and of course Abra stations.... More

This is a lovely place to visit, more local and authentic without all the bling bling and glitters of Downtown Dubai. Great to walk around, nice restaurants.

Buzzing relaxed afternoon.... Nice walk along the creek with the constant activities of dhows... From Bur Dubai side where you can also find most of the consulates, it is where you can jump on board of one of the many dhows for a cruise along the creek. But it is from the Deira side where you can have a nice... More

I would agree with a previous reviewer. It's OK, but nothing special. The advertising "blurb" gives the impression this is a small little river with places to stroll and explore in the evening. In actual fact it's a fairly large river which is sided by the same kind of towers you see on the main road. It's a just river... More

I enjoy the Dubai Creek area mainly because of the feel of the place with all of the boat traffic and buzz of people. There are also some good restaurants to enjoy along the creek closer and at the Heritage Village area where a meal can be enjoyed creekside. The constant moving about of the small boats (abras) creates a... More

By Dubai standards, I guess this is an "attraction", but it's really nothing special according to me. It's a creek with lots of tourist and small boats taking tourists across and up and down the creek. It's not particularly beatiful - no interesting buildings or historical sites or anything. I would only suggest you going here if you don't have... More

This is a must do if you are in Dubai. Cheep trip across the creek is great fun and after a wander around the Souk's we headed for Bayt Al Wakeel on the other side for lunch.
