This part of Dubai will show you what the city looked like before modernization and oil fortunes came into play. Dubai Creek is famous for its markets, known as souks, and its surrounding area, including the Al-Fahidi neighborhood. Dhow boats line the shores, full of goods ready to be exported to different countries. Souks here sell all kinds of items from all over Dubai.
The famous Gold Souk, Spice, and Textile Souks are in this area, which means you have access to a full day of traditional and expensive shopping. There are boats available to take you across the water to the other side as well if you'd like.
