This is the place the traders, even to this day do business by loading their wooden boats with merchandise from Dubai then transported to Iran and across the Gulf.

Although there are many souks to visit, they all have their own flavor and appeal, this one was exceptionally nice to be in. It was picturesque and felt really "real" compared to some of the others.

This is fun. Pay 1 dirham and you will experience a special event. Smile to the vendors and politely say no. Keep on walking.

The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders
call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the

If you mean crossing the creek on one of the passenger boats, I say yes. It is safe because stepping on and off the boat is easy without any jumping or climbing involved. Once on board you can sit down. The ride is not bumpy... More
