“Best place in Dubai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Loved the creek view and the numerous abras that keep going back and forth. The place makes for a very good evening stroll with cafetarias serving excellent falafel shawrmas..

“An Interesting Place to Walk around, especially at Night.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We walked along the creek, near the gold & spice souks on one side & the heritage village on the other side. We walked around these areas during the daytime & at night. It displays a totally different atmosphere during the day to what it does at night. It is great to take a ride across the creek for 1AED on an 'abra', which run day & night. Don't take a water taxi unless you have to go further along the creek to a specific destination, as this will cost you significantly more. If you just want to go across the creek, take the traditional abra, as it is fun & safe.

“Ferry trip a must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Hop on one of the small timber ferries to get to the other side of the creek - more of a river actually. It's a good way to mix with the locals and view the city from a different vantage point. It's also relaxing. Ferries run regularly, are cheap and fast.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Great to soak up atmosphere along the creek. We had a sail on it which was included in the bus ticket. Lots to visit nearby.
