Creek peak into heritage
The Dubai Creek is where the city started developing. Around 1902, Dubai became the main anchorage in the area for dhows from India and East Africa. Now the creek offers a variety of activities and sights. Whether you are a tourist or a UAE resident, visits to the Dubai Museum, the Bastakiya area and the Shaikh Saeed Al Maktoum are worth the effort.
