The Dubai Creek divides the charming “City of Lights” into 2 commercial districts, while epitomizing the city’s personality. Along its banks, the splendid sophistication of the 21st century walks along with the simplicity of a foregone era. What is the best way to experience this? Well, you can take a dhow cruise.
What to Expect
Cruising down the tranquil Dubai Creek will give you a novel experience, which you should not miss when visiting this beautiful place. By hopping aboard a traditional Arabian dhow, you will enjoy an unforgettable evening, where the height of opulence would combine with a heartwarming sense of the ancient Bedouin tradition. You can have a fine dinner—which includes an inspiring variety of freshly prepared gourmet specialties, such as the original Emirati dishes that are topped off with a luscious selection of desserts—and witness the fascinating lights of the creek with music and a dance show, while sipping your favorite drink. It will be an experience that is distinguished by incredible milieu, courteous services and unmatched hospitality.
Absolutely one of the main attractions in the city, a dinner cruise will be a perfect way for you to enjoy the exquisite vistas of Bur Dubai and Deira in a welcoming and cozy ambience. Typically, this tour lasts hours that usually starts after sunset and covers almost the entire creek.
