I took the dinner cruise at the DUBAI CREEK and it was wonderful on a balmy breezy night in Dubai. Looking at DUBAI from the water was beautiful and the dinner was fine.

Spent a week in Dubai. We spent 4 nights near the mall on Sheikh Zayed Road and 2 nights in Old Town on the creek. You couldn't ask for two more different places. Downtown is sleek and modern while the creek is much more laid back. As others have said, make sure you ride the abra boats. There are also plenty of dinner cruise options as well.

Highly recommend a visit here, we took a taxi then for 1aed an abra boat across the creek to the souk and it was like stepping back in time of how Dubai used to be. We had great fun bartering for Pashminis and souvenirs then we took a 30 min private abra boat tour for 60 aed up the creek and the guide pointed out the different places, if you have time take the 1 hour trip as im sure you will see lots more and it was so relaxing and informative.

A visit to the Creek is like taking a step back in time and getting a glimpse into how Dubai emerged from a small village living on pearl trade and fishing into a world-class mega city. There's a lot to see from the old houses and bustling souk to a ride on the abra.

Dubai Creek is at the heart of Old Dubai. Take a traditional Abra boat to cross the creek and you can visit the Souk (market). It's like stepping back in time.

This is one of the best places to visit in Dubai

It represents all the beginning of the city and the energy of the markets there where you can buy souvenirs at an fair price

I recommend to all to take the boat to see both areas

I liked it and the service was great. It just has a lot of distractions as it is designed for eye attractions. It should be less noise. I will come back again but in early summer.
