A real difference here. Interesting waterside location away from the hustle and bustle of uptown skyscrapers and shopping malls. Old shops souks and small restaurants.

The Dubai Creek was a great adventure that allowed us to see the markets and enjoy a short boat ride along the creek. Loved the atmosphere and special finds.
