Dubai Creek: Is this place worth a visit?

Dubai Creek is a natural seawater inlet that runs through the heart of Dubai and is one of the most iconic and historic landmarks in the city. For centuries, it has played a pivotal role in the development of Dubai, serving as a port for trade, commerce, and fishing.

The creek is approximately 14 km long and divides the city into two parts- Deira to the north and Bur Dubai to the south. It is also home to one of the oldest and most traditional markets in the city, the Dubai Gold Souk, and the Spice Souk. The traditional wooden boats, known as abras, have been ferrying people across the creek for over a century and have become a symbol of Dubai's heritage.

Every day, visitors can witness the hustle and bustle of the traditional trading that takes place along the creek and see first-hand the melding of old and new UAE cultures. There are several iconic landmarks and tourist attractions surrounding the creek, including the Dubai Museum, Heritage and Diving Village, and the Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood.

Another famous landmark along the creek is the Dubai Creek Tower, which is currently under construction and is expected to become the tallest man-made structure in the world. Once completed, the tower will stand at a staggering 828 meters and offer breathtaking views of the city skyline and the creek.

The Dubai Creek is not just a historical landmark, but it is also an important part of the city's future. Dubai Municipality has launched a comprehensive development plan for the creek, focusing on creating a more sustainable and liveable environment for residents and visitors. The plan includes increasing public transport options, creating new residential and commercial spaces, and preserving the area's cultural and historical heritage.

Dubai Creek is a symbol of the UAE's past, present, and future. Today, it is an important tourist destination, and visitors can explore the waterways by boat, enjoy the stunning views, and learn about the emirates' fascinating history and culture.
