Dubai Creek

Hotels near Dubai Creek, Dubai, United Arab Emirates .

Also known as Khor Dubai, Dubai Creek is a saltwater-filled creek in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Called the River Zara by ancient Greeks, the creek extends as far as Al Ain in the inland. In the early twentieth century, the creek remained an important feature in the Dubaiís commercial position since it is the only harbour in the city. The pearling industry of Dubai formed a sector of the economy.

This natural sea water inlet cutting through the city center lets visitors take a water taxi or a cruise to Al Maktoum Bridge passing through the cityís historic and major landmarks. Night walking around the wharf in the evening lets you view the picturesque skyline across the water.

An extension has recently been approved for the creek as part of the Business bay development which will bring the creek all the way surrounding Bur Dubai and into the Persian Gulf. The expansion will add ten kilometers to the creek which will increase to twelve kilometers in 2010.

Nearby attractions include the Desert Safari Dubai, the Seawings Dubai, Ibn Battuta Mall, The Tower of Arabs Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Beach and Park, Jumeirah Mosque, Ski Dubai and the Aquaventure Water Park.

Dubai hotels and accommodations include the Oasis Beach Tower Apartments, Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa Dubai, Nuran Marina Serviced Residences, Rose Garden Hotel Apartments and the Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates.
