Deira Creek by night

September 28, 2010

Beyond its costly city brand, Dubai has inexpensive nice places to frequent, including the Dubai Creek side. This creek tells much about Dubai's history, culture, economy and tourist hub. 
It's one of our mall alternatives if we need a stroll and a breath of outside air. At night, the following are what I look forward going there: 
1) docked old cargo vessels with its resting crew.
2) Chinese guys showing off their "karate exercise". They weren't there this evening though.
3) well-lit dhow cruise boats sailing by.

Do check here some of the photos I took tonight.

Kalel's Lola Mommy seems to wonder why the dhow cruise boats are just docked on the other side.

I always recall Michael Palin's Dubai stop in his Around the World in 80 days whenever I see these cargo boats.

These carry everything from juices to cars finding their way out of the gulf

I wonder how I can withstand sailing in these for weeks

These crew signaled me to capture a photo of them

This li'l guy knows Atlantis so well he said: "I dont want to ride the car to Atlantis, can we ride the boat to go there?" 

We'll be riding the water taxi and abra (small passenger boat) in the weekend, do come back for the creekside daytime photos =)
