Stroll along Dubai Creek, a natural feature around which much of the city has sprung up. Follow the boardwalk to admire sights of some of the city's most iconic buildings, or take a ride across to the other side for a new perspective on the stretch of water and the developments that line its banks. Hop on a water taxi to access the more traditional side of Dubai on the opposite bank, featuring may popular souks (open-air markets) and other cultural attractions--you'll see how the creek that once divided the city now, in many ways, brings it together. Dubai Creek is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • Great ambiance in the old part of Dubai. Beautiful at night. An evening cruise is a great way to see the whole creek.
  • Oh what a lovely place to visit in Dubai! No trip can be completed without spending an evening there. Its so colorful, melodius and gentle. Take a river cruise dinner and float with classical Arabian music. Loved the dance too. Its an amazing place where modern architecture blends with classics.
