Dubai Creek (Khor Dubai)

The seawater Dubai Creek, flowing between Deira and Bur Dubai in the historic center of Dubai, is the reason for the city's very existence. When trade with the outside world began over a century ago, this protected inlet was the obvious choice to develop a commercial seaport. The creek has been widened many times during the last century, and today, it's often busy with abra—small wooden water taxis—ferrying passengers between the souks of Deira on the northeastern bank and the historic district of Bur Dubai on the southwestern bank.

While water taxis are often included as part of guided sightseeing tours and serve as a practical way to see the sights of Dubai Creek while getting from Point A to Point B, the waterway can also be enjoyed via a sunset dinner cruise aboard a traditional Arabian wooden sailboat known as a dhow. From the creek, it's possible to spot palaces, mosques and other Dubai landmarks, including the Gold Souk and the Dubai Heritage Village.

Practical Info

There are four stations where travelers board water taxis—two on the Deira side and two on the Bur Dubai side.

Did You Know? Abra transport more than 20 million people across Dubai Creek each year.
