No matter what type of traveler you may be, I highly recommend taking a visit to the Dubai creek. The seawater cuts through the heart of Dubai and separates Deira and Bur Dubai. Take a ride on a traditional wooden boat (dhow) down the creek and enjoy the old and new scenery, from the glistening buildings to the old Spice Souk. If you’re on a budget, you can take a short water taxi ride (abra) to cross the river amongst the locals and reach the Creekside park. But if you’re looking for a lovely evening out, you can take a longer dhow dinner cruise and enjoy local food and a live dance show on the boat (these take place at 8:30pm daily).Recommended for:

The creek is the heart and soul of the "old" city and is the center of the action for anyone seeking to discover Dubai's cultural heritage. Take a ride on an abra, visit the nearby souks (on both sides of the river), and sail along to catch a fading glimpse of the "real" Dubai.Recommended for:

Dubai creak is a busy place with working merchant boats, water taxis, and dinner cruises fighting for space. It's a great way to see the older parts of town. Take one of the cruises, perhaps as part of the Big Bus Tour which includes it with the basic package.

I had a higher expectation before I visited Dubai Creek expecting to see some traditional way of living around this area. I was quite disappointed to see the area was quite developed.

Enjoy dinner aboard a traditional Arabian Dhow (boat) while cruising along the Dubai creek taking in sites along the way. This is a great way to experience the city's culture & cuisine, enjoy Arabic melodies & taste some local flavors.
