Dubai's most important waterway becomes a different creature at night, reflecting the brightest lights of this electric city. One of the best ways to see the creek is on a Dhow Dinner Cruise. Embrace Bedouin traditions as you board a charming wooden ship (called an abra), feast on local cuisine, and unwind as panoramic views of the city spread out before you. Visiting during the day? Zip above the creek in a suspended cable car, or hit the ground to watch the spectacular street shows and treat yourself to a picnic in the nearby park.
