Neighborhoods
The historical areas around Dubai Creek are where many of the city’s unique stories started. The waterway bifurcates the city into old Deira, and Bur Dubai. It was on the banks of creek that the first souks sprung up, trading spice, scent, and fabric. Today, a walk down the sides of the creek still shows evidence of this heritage.A ten-minute ride in a taxi will bring you creekside for an explosion of the senses at the Spice Souk. More than 150 stalls line the narrow laneways, selling fragrances, herbs and spices from throughout the region. From the souk, step outside, cross the road and walk down to the Deira Old Souk Abra Station to take a traditional abra ride across Dubai Creek to Bur Dubai. The local water taxi will cost you only AED1 each way. Each abra holds 20 passengers and there are 150 boats making their way back and forth across the creek every day. Abras are also available to hire privately by the hour for extended tours. While you’re on the creek you will see wooden dhows and cargo boats and can imagine what life must have been like when trade centred on this waterway with life unfolding at a slower pace.
