Take a boat ride to both sides of the creek for great for shopping - just be prepared to be offered the same item over and over again. The colors are amazing and it is a great way to photograph the older side of Dubai!

Really enjoyed seeing the sights on a gentle cruise along the creek. It was a lovely rest during the hustle and bustle of the Red Bus Tour. Thoroughly enjoyed.

The creek is so special during the day and night. To be able to take the local transport across to see the museum or the souks is something special. Also the dinner cruises are absolutely amazing to end a night off. Definitely recommend it.
