Tourists visiting Dubai will find no shortage of things to do and places to visit. One place that is highly recommended for travellers is the Dubai Creek. Dubai Creek is a saltwater creek that is located in the centre of Dubai. The Creek is the lifeline of Dubai and separates the Dubai airport and Deira area from the Dubai city.

Travelers interested in visiting places of historical value must positively see Dubai Creek as the first Dubai settlement was built at the mouth of the Creek and the remains of the settlement can be seen there even now. They can also see the old trading port and the dhows from the Creek. There are three places where travelers can cross the Dubai Creek, Al Garhoud Bridge, Al Makthoum Bridge and Al Shindagha.
The Dubai Creek can be crossed by the means of an Abra. An Abra cruise takes a traveler down the Dubai Creek on a small motorboat. The Abra is a traditional noisy wooden boat used to ferry people across the creek. This hour long cruise is a worthwhile experience that tourists must try out for once. It is the best way to enjoy the many landmarks from the Dubai Creek and to take pictures of them too. It is a mesmerizing and fascinating experience to cruise over the unblemished waters of the Arabian Gulf.
