Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Quite relaxing place. The birds make a lot of difference.. Feeding them is a lot of fun, sometimes the birds can make you feel lucky on your head. Be careful of the birds also..

I visited the Creek and talk a private Dhow tour for half an hour at a cost of 60 AED.

It was early morning so the Creek was very quiet and relaxing. Very good views of modern and old Dubai along the route.

The water is smelling bad. It is enough to give a vomit to visitor. Do not swim in this filthy water.

It's actually a great way to get to the Deira souk avoiding all the traffic by road. Also an experience which is safe and economical.

If the weather is good; you get a fun and breezy ride.

Such a cute place. Very tranquil compared to the city areas. Small boat ride to the carnival mall. Costs AED2. one way with metro card.

As we stayed not too far from the creek, we headed there in the evening a few times, both to have dinner and a walk along its banks.
The place is very busy, but also a bit sketchy if you are, or are with, a woman, as guys tend to stare quite a lot.
There are some food and clothes stalls, restaurants and bars, and you can use an abra to cross the river, which is a very pleasant experience, or even take a ferry as we once did and head to Marina.
All in all it's worth a quick visit, but I wouldn't make it my top priority

Excellent fun and great to experience. The abras (water taxis) don’t hang around, seem to pull up, you get on and off you go. You might find your abra jostling for space or even bumping into each other, but do not let this put you off it is all part of the experience and we loved every minute and plane to use as often as we can.

I took the dinner cruise at the DUBAI CREEK and it was wonderful on a balmy breezy night in Dubai. Looking at DUBAI from the water was beautiful and the dinner was fine.
