Tourist Attraction

Dubai Creek

The 11 km long estuary Dubai Creek separates the two parts of the city and forms the lifeline of Dubai. Trade is still conducted here today, and the lively bustle is testament to the former importance of the Creek as a collecting point for goods. But the Creek is also important for modern Dubai, because it is here that the first skyscrapers were built.
There are various ways to cross the Creek from one district to another. You can take a taxi over the Al Maktoum Bridge or drive through the Al Shindagha Tunnel. It is also possible to use the pedestrian tunnel from the Baniyas Road to Shindagha. The most scenic route is by water taxi, on an open-topped wooden boat known as an Abra. Enjoy the view of the historic Bastikaya district and the modern silhouette of Dubai on a trip with this traditional means of transport.
An evening cruise on the Creek with a traditional dhow is a special experience. This includes a dinner that will surely be unforgettable in this unique ambience. The many restaurants on the banks of the Creek offer an alternative.
