Different side to Dubai
May 2021 • Solo
Dubai Creek is a must visit for visitors to Dubai. It is the main reason the city is here, thanks to the old trading post which was established on it, and shows a different side to the city.

The creek goes from the sea in the old part of Dubai down to business bay where it mergers into Dubai Water Canal.

The creek is very wide in places and the home to lots of wildlife. A cruise down the creek in an abra or old style dhow boat is a great way to see it and Dubai, although there is a limit to how far you can travel down it because of the floating bridge.

The old part of the city on either side of the creek is a great place to visit - full of life and spice, good and souvenir souks.

The place is full of foreigners. This Dubai landmark is no longer an Emirates icon. It has no locals. Full of people from other countries that disturb tourists.

Nice but over run at weekends by locals
Mar 2021 • Family
It's a lovely scenic area but at the weekends we did not feel so safe it was over run by locals and I don't mean a little bit, a lot to the point you couldn't walk through the pathways I felt it was unsafe for my children as there was no security measures. I prefer a more exclusive, secluded part in future.

Nice!
Apr 2021 • Family
We went to dubai creek late evening for a dhow cruise with dinner. Although the cruise and dinner was average just the sights and sounds of dubai creek and to see all the lights and glitter as well as the different types of architecture at night was superb. Even if you don't go for the dinner cruise it's worth just visiting the creek and having maybe dinner on the shoreline or just taking a walk along it.

About to lose its identity

Old Dubai and Dubai Creek has old school charm that is being eroded by non Emiraetis who accost tourists here. Stop this harassment of tourists by foreigners in this beautiful place !

A lovely evening haunt.

Take an abra... but also just walk on the shore... it's perfect for a romantic walk along the coast, just avoid the crowded places, but the crowds thins towards the museum side, it's very quiet and pretty.

What an adventure

We roamed throughout the area visiting many souks. I went once with a guide and once without. We felt safe both times.

Fantastic Yacht, we were joined by close friends for this charter sailing out of the Dubai Marina and around the Burj Al Arab.
Staff were fantastic and helpful towards outer needs. Very considerate captain throughout the trip, who was happy for us to tailor the voyage and provided connection to the music.

A fantastic way to see Dubai in a relaxed setting.
