Set between the centrally located Bur Dubai and Karama districts you will be able to enjoy the meeting of modern and ancient Dubai, with old barges and scenes of trading on one side of the creek and ultra-modern residential and retail complexes on the other. The creek is also the site of a beautiful and pristinely-kept green park, as well as the destination to experience stunning firework displays in the evening.
Around the Bur Dubai district particularly you will come across a wealth of souks, or covered markets. These hubs of bustling activity and excitement are a great place to immerse yourself in local traditions and culture; as not only will you be able to pick up some traditional products, you can also interact directly with the friendly and welcoming residents. Everything from gold to fish, spice and textiles can be found here and it’s best to come in the late afternoon when they are at their most lively and you can best practice your bartering skills to nab a good deal! The colourful textiles and furnishings make the ideal souvenir or gift for a loved one at home. The neighbouring creek is home to several abra stations which transport people across the water in traditional wooden barges, used as taxis, to the other side – you can’t go home without having experienced it!
