There are lots of things to see along Dubai creek. By the creek is where you can catch a glimpse of old Dubai. We got on an abra with everyone else and headed over to the spice souq and gold souq.
This is what an abra looks like:
~for 1 dirham (less than US$1), you can get on an abra and cross the creek~
Most of the passengers in an abra are men so females might feel a little bit uneasy but I can guarantee, they never bite! Crossing the creek in the primitive way
unless of course you want to swin across was a great experience for us – – least there were no traffic compared to when crossing Maktoum Bridge! (We were in another abra when taking the above photo)
Another charmer along Dubai creek:
The National Bank of Dubai building, situated near the creek is a unique structure. Its wall finishing reflects the water, making it look like a large LCD television.

I’ll be posting more about the creek while we discover bits and bits of it in the coming weekends. Don’t get bored of the creek photos!
