Dubai Customs streamlines trade and tourism at the Creek
01 November, 2016
Nearly 12,229 vessels, including traditional wooden boats, modern vessels and cruise ships, sailed in and out of the Dubai Creek during 2015, Dubai Customs reported on 31 October. Situated in the centre of Dubai and flowing between Bur Dubai and Deira, the Creek is where trade with the outside world began for the emirate more than a century ago. The Creek has always boasted both historical and economic significance, and as a commercial hub and a tourist attraction, it has remained the very “heart” of the city.
