“Worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Although the is off the beaten path (compared to the modern part of Dubai) it is worth going especially if you take one of the boats to cross the creek (not the cruises) and if you have a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants.

“Moonlight cruise on the creek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

For a wonderful experience on Dubai Creek you should take a dhow dinner cruise. The food is wonderful, the service excellent and the most relaxing way of enjoying the night lights. Yet another must-do in Dubai. Most impressing.

“So relaxing in a busy diverse city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Just to walk along the creek one side and then take the little boat to the other and experience a different Dubai is a real treat. Late in the evening is a great time as it is buzzing and you get a feel for the real Dubai..

“Great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We went to Ravi's and then onto Dubai Creek, this is were the souks are. The gold souk was great, shop upon shop of gold. This place was buzzing, a big contrast to downtown Dudai. This was the old town and more down to earth. Great experience.
