A few steps away from the taxi-boat stations pouring their stream of tourists into the traditional souks, the docks of the Dubai creek where the docks are moored are very alive and testify that the tourism did not take precedence over the commercial activity of the historic Old Town Dubai.

Plans d'accès et informations pratiques

The dockside wharf is located on the north shore of Dubai creek, between the two abras stations. It is not really a tourist site, but rather an alternative tour and walk route that will make you discover the more traditional face of Dubai.
