Exploring Dubai Creek – Part 1 (Al Bastakiya) Updated for 2023

Updated: November 1, 2023

Let me guess, you’re an expat in Dubai who has never explored the Dubai Creek aren’t you?

Shame on you! Dubai Creek has been the heartbeat of this city for centuries, ever since the first mention of Dubai in 1587. Spending a day walking around the old city, getting lost in beautiful Bastakiya, taking an abra boat to the gold and spice souq and stopping for a refreshing drink on the creekside is a must.

Go get lost, realize where you live, witness the history and explore a side of Dubai far too few residents take the time to see.
