Cutting through the heart of Dubai, the seawater of Dubai Creek winds its way from the trading port on the Gulf to the Ras al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary on the city’s desert edge.

Some sources say that the creek extended as far inland as Al Ain, and that the Ancient Greeks called it River Zara. Today, old-fashioned boats, also known as dhows, float over the pristine water that connects Bur Dubai on the left bank to Deira on the right.

Catch a water-taxi dhow called an abra, to get from one destination to another. You can also indulge in a romantic sunset dhow cruise traveling further upstream.
 
A cruise reveals the glittering high-rise buildings lining the Creek, passing under several bridges to reach the Creekside gardens. A stroll along the paved promenade lining the Creek on the Bur Dubai side of the waterway is another must do activity while you’re visiting Dubai.
