Lined by dhows, the Creek offers a picturesque glimpse of Dubai's trading heritage. It can be crossed by 'abra' (water taxi) and tour operators offer day and night cruises.

Shindagha

Near the mouth of the Creek, Shindagha is the original site from which Dubai grew. Sheikh Saeed's house, the former home of the ruling Maktoum family, has been carefully restored here. The Heritage and Driving Villages provide a rare glimpse of Dubai's traditional culture and lifestyle.

Bastakiya

The earliest form of air-conditioning, the wind tower, which was used to cool homes in the Gulf, can still be seen in the Bastakiya area, to the east of Al Fahidi Fort where many traditional courtyard houses can be found.
