From a modest fishing village Dubai Creek was transformed into a city hub of beautiful skylines and rich culture that makes up the city’s evolution through time. Dubai is famous for the glitz and glamour of its sky-high towers, but the real heart of the city is the ancient trade routes called the Dubai Creek.

Today, the area is awash with the history of the country. The Creek is home to the Dubai Museum and intricate alleyways of the gold, spice and textile souks. At the Creek, a ride across the water on a traditional abra is a must; this is one of the best tourist attractions in the city.
