This Saltwater Creek is UAE’s one of the major ports and divides the city into two parts and connects the trading port to the desert. Extended to the Persian Gulf and the wildlife sanctuary, this waterway acts as a commercial lifeline as it facilitates not just tourism but also harbors ships, trade, and commercial activities. This is a popular place for an evening visit. Witness the lights and music shows, floating and moving dhows, yachts, boats, and vessels to get a glimpse of old Dubai during the trade times. A delectable meal and a starry waterfront are all you need to end your journey and trip on a good note!
The creek was developed to create a custom and import duty-free trade and to make Dubai a major hub for the merchants and traders worldwide to conduct trade activities. Surrounded by the Deira twin towers, Dubai creek towers, and the Sheraton Dubai creek, this port is a perfect amalgamation of traditions and modernized living and matches up with the overall architecture of the city. Also known as River Zara, this creek is a highly picturesque spot and attracts masses towards its traditional appeal which makes it different from the surrounding high-rise structures. It gives the city a new identity and boosts the marine trade as well.
