Dubai has a wonderful modern architecture which makes breath taking cityscape. There for an absolute must while in Dubai is taking a ride on cable-car in Dubai Creek park (just accros Yacht club). As far as I can remember, the price for one adult is 35 dirhams and the ride takes about 15 minutes. Make sure you bring your camera with you!
The creek is the main arthery of Dubai and at its sides the commerce and the life flourishes. Some of the most interesting sights of the city are at the banks of the Creek so, it is absolutely worth to take your time and walk along this very special feature of Dubai.
The way to cross the Creek is by Abra, little motorboats that you will se aplenty when walking alongside. Very cheap, only 50 fils.
Unless you decide to take one all for your self and make your own customised cruise on the Creek, that is.
Price is around 30 or 40 Dh and I think it is worth the price. But only if you are after a little cruise. Never take an Abra for yourself if you only intend to cross the Creek !! Too expensive, really.
Remember to bargain: aim to pay 30 Dh for a half an hour trip or 60Dh for a 60 min one.

Dubai is divided by the Dubai Creek into Deira(north section) and Bur Dubai (south section).To appreciate the city atmosphere , cross the river by water taxi (called abra) which cost about 25 US cents or less.

Dubai Creek is a-must-to-visit place in Dubai. Situated in Bur Dubai, along the creek, you will love the beautiful view of creek. It is a mixture of modern and traditional. High rise buildings in the background and the dhows and abras (small ships) cruise along the creek. You can take abra to cross from Bur Dubai to Baniyas street in Deira.
Along the creek, you can find many restaurants (mostly Arabic and Lebanese restaurants) , also you can enjoy Shisha. If you come in the afternoon, you will find many birds. You can also feed them by throwing the small pieces of bread to the water. Usually, the birds will catch it before the bread touches the water. It’s nice!! But try to catch them will cause you to pay fine. So, better to avoid it.

Dubai Creek divides the city of Dubai into two separate sections; Bur Dubai and Deira. To get to the creek, just take a taxi which is relatively cheap. The creek is busy with water taxis and Dows; a means of transporting people and goods. It is a beautiful area where markets can be found; restaurants, etc. A must see!!!
Sunset reflections on Dubai creek
The glass-fronted buildings along the edge of the creek vary in appearance depending on the time of day.
At sunset, the buildings cast impressive reflections onto the creek.
Seen here is the sun reflecting off the National Bank of Dubai building to give the creek an orange glow.
along the creek
It is interesting to see the contrast between the high rise buildings on one side of the creek and the dhows on the other

Sunset at the creek.
The sunset at the creek it´s a great experience, the small boats and the dhows, specially in Ramadan, when the city comes to life after that special time.
