The Dubai Creek in the United Arab Emirates is one of the most significant and top tourist attractions of the emirates and is also a natural wonder. This saltwater creek runs through the heart of the city and divides Dubai into two major districts: The Deira and Bur Dubai. 


It symbolizes the city’s long tradition of trading since it has served as a harbor for ships for so many years and with its expansion and broadening, Dubai Creek has turned Dubai into one of the major port cities of the U.A.E. Not only has it become a trading port but also, it offers different attractions and activities, both locals and tourists can enjoy.



What Activities to Do in Dubai Creek

Dubai Creek has a certain charm despite the busy activities of the locals and guests in and around this picturesque landmark. This is the home to the Dubai Museum, located in Dubai Fort, at the south side of Dubai Creek. 


Discover the rich history of the city of Dubai that had been visited and walked on by people of different cultures and civilizations. The museum showcase drawings and diagrams, authentic monuments and other artifacts such as tombs, weapons and pottery displayed in the different wings of the museum, among the numerous exhibited collection. Built in 1787, this is the oldest building in Dubai, making it well worth a visit.


If you are planning on sightseeing, you can do this in style by taking a water taxi ride or a wooden dhow cruise down the Dubai Creek. See the shimmering lights along the creek as you enjoy live entertainment and feast on Arabian and International cuisines on a two-hour cruise. Whether you want to have a day or a night cruise, you and your family will definitely have an awesome unique experience while vacationing in Dubai.


Apart from discovering the beauty of the city in this part of Dubai aboard a water taxi, you can also engage in some cardio exercises while enjoying shopping for souvenirs and exploring the shops. Take a walk along the promenade and experience the culture first-hand. You can visit the souks in the bustling area for an Arab trading tradition adventure like the Spice Souk, Gold Souk and the Textile Souk. While you’re at it, you can also explore the Dhow Wharfage Area to have a closer look at the dhows and see how they trade their goods.


But if you still want to view the city of Dubai from a different angle, you can take the cable car at the Creek Park for a bird’s eye view of the city. The 2.3 kilometer trip is from a height of 30 meters that gives you a view of the skyscrapers on Sheikh Zayed Road on sunny days as well as the water activities on the creek where other revelers engage in cruises or water sports activities like water skiing. 



Where to Stay

Another factor that makes Dubai Creek perfect for visitors, locals and foreign are the myriad of hotels that offer budget to luxurious accommodation types. If money is not an option, you can take your pick among luxury hotels. If you prefer budget-friendly accommodation there are many to choose from also.
