If Dubai were Venice, the traditional dhows that ply its waters would be akin to the rustic gondolas used to navigate the streets of the Italian city. But the dhows of the Middle East are even more sophisticated and beautiful than the gondolas of the West.
While this lofty comparison could be just because we are a loyal Abu Dhabi travel company, dhows are undoubtedly an ubiquitous feature in the Emirate of Dubai. Unlike the Venetian gondolas though, dhows are more of a tourist feature than a water taxi.
A popular route your guide will take you down by is the magnificient Dubai Creek. Other equally popular routes include Mussandam, Khor Sham and Kumzar.
All along the way, you shall get to savour the sights and sounds of Dubai’s bustling and thriving urban life. Many travellers going sightseeing in Dubai never fail to marvel at the contrasts between tradional and modern Dubai.
