While Dubai Canal can be beautiful to visit at night, there isn't much to see here. There is a really long walking path that encircles the canal which might take about 2 hours to cover. Every half an hour a small boat full of tourists...More

Relaxing experience traveling in the water taxis. Beware of some boat drivers who will take you out of your way and not drop you back off to your port of origin without attempting to make you pay fare twice.

Starting at the jumeirah end we cycled up the entire path alongside the canal. It’s about 10k. A pleasant ride with good views across the city. Plenty of bars to get a drink if needed. It seemed a popular place with runners.

Another spectacular view from the Emir of Dubai. It was breathtaking to see the waters change colors during our night cruise. It is definitely worth taking a trip down the canal.

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
