All history of Dubai is associated with the Bay Creek – a natural sea-sleeve, dividing the city in two parts. Dubai Creek is a shallow saltwater, Creek that winds its way from the trading port on the Gulf to the Ras al Khor, bird sanctuary on the desert edge of Dubai. Along the both sides of the Creek lies: the Deira Corniche and the Bur Dubai Corniche and lots of mini docks that berths assorted dhow and speed boats and yachts. There are no big boats, as the Creek is shallow. Activities to do at the Creek include riding the old-fashioned boats called Dhows, criss-cross the water from Bur Dubai – on the left bank, to Deira – on the right, or catch a water taxi, which is a small dhow, called an Abra. This is one of the ways, how you can get from Bur Dubai to Deira and back or sign up for a romantic sunset dhow cruise traveling further upstream. The Creek is the main artery 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.
