About Dubai Creek
Dubai Creek-where old meets new. This is where it all began. Historically the creek divided Dubai into two sections – Deira and Bur Dubai. In the 19th century, the Bani Yas tribe started settling in the Bur Dubai Creek area. That led to the Al Maktoum dynasty, which brought about the birth of thriving modern Dubai. Dubai Creek is a seawater inlet that provides a natural harbour.
