Cruising down Dubai creek is a novel experience, one which you cannot miss when in Dubai. Imagine yourself on having dinner on a Dhow Cruise with the fascinating lights of Dubai creek with Music and Tanura Dance show with a sip of your favorite drink and BBQ buffet dinner .  The tradition and bygone days of Dubai as the city unravels itself on this 60 minutes dhow cruise is 14km stretch of water separating Bur Dubai from Deira Dubai and also known as
Khor Dubai, is the Dubai Creek. On both sides of the water is the Corniche, where residents and tourists can take a walk to enjoy the view, buildings, and old-fashioned ‘dhows’ that criss-cross across.

Dubai Creek

This 60 minutes water ride on a wooden dhow cruise in Dubai is a chance to view and capture the amazing sights on each of the two sides of Dubai Creek. On the Bur Dubai side you will spot the Ruler’s Court, Al Bastakiya, Dubai Museum, Sheikh Saeed House, Heritage Village and on the Deira side are the souqs (markets) that see textiles, spices and gold.

In Dubai, colorful and brightly lit wooden boats gracefully glide across the calm waters at night. This captivating attraction is a living reminder of the city’s past which was centered on the fishing, pearl diving, and shipping industries. These traditional boats are called dhows, and now serve a more recreational rather than commercial purpose. Cruising along the historic Dubai Creek, it offers sumptuous dinner as it treats guests to a unique dinner experience.

Our next entertainment was the traditional Tanoura Dance, Sufi whirling (or Sufi spinning) is a form of Sama or physically active meditation which originated among Sufis. It is a customary dance performed within the Sema, or worship ceremony, through which dervishes (also called semazens, from Persian ) aim to reach the source of all perfection, or kemal. A fabulous performance and this will take you to a different level.
