Once known by the Ancient Greeks as River Zara, Dubai Creek divides the city into two sections, Deira and Bur Dubai. The creek stretches through Dubai, passing state of the art skyscrapers and golf courses to Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, 14 kilometres from its origin in the Persian Gulf. Visitors to the city can enjoy traditional “abra” boat trips to various tourist destinations along the creek.
Bur Dubai is a historical area, where a variety of exciting attractions can be found. Glide along the creek on the abras, disembarking to explore myriad souks, shopping malls and floating restaurants. Deira is the old financial centre of Dubai. Its bustling commercial and residential district offers much to travellers. Be tempted by the fragrant aromas of the spice markets and enticed by colourful textiles on offer in the souks. Travellers can visit Burj Khalifa, the centrepiece of a huge, upscale development, with one of the highest observation platforms in the world. The unique structural design is based on Islamic architecture and pattern systems which are unique to this region. There are two observation decks, the highest is located on the 148th floor SKY Level, at the height of 555 metres. From the deck, visitors can see the Dubai Mall, Dubai Fountains, the Persian Gulf and on a clear day all the way to the shores of Iran. Adventurers interested in local culture should head for Dubai Museum. Located in Al Fahidi Fort, the museum is the oldest existing building in Dubai, dating back to 1787. Regional antiquities and artefacts can be discovered in the museum, one of the most popular attractions in Dubai with over a million visitors per year.
In addition to utilising the “abras” and water taxis, there are other ways to get around Dubai. Cars are the most popular mode of transport. The Emirates are connected by excellent road networks, making it easy to explore more than one country. Buses and metro lines operate throughout Dubai. The Metro Green Line covers the core of the city centre, and further lines are planned to cover outlying areas. Monorail operates across Palm Jumeirah, and trams link Dubai Marina with Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Lakes Towers Station.
Dubai Creek came into its own in the early 20th century, when the waterfront served as a minor port for dhows arriving from East Africa and India. The area established itself as the commercial centre of Dubai and became a world player in the pearl and fishing industries. Over decades, the city transformed into a burgeoning business and commercial centre. Today, visitors come from far and wide to enjoy sailing down the creek, viewing skyscrapers and strolling spice markets from the water.
