The Burj Khalifa may give you that famous skyline view from up high but the most iconic  Dubai views are still taken from the water . Dubai Creek slices through the city and the best way to experience Dubai is from one of the beautiful dhows ( Traditional Arabic boats ) that ply the creek . Sunset cruises are particularly beautiful as you watch the light of the high rises begin to twinkle in the dusk . Or for a budget cruise just hop on one of the ablas which ply water between Bur Dubai and Deira

Al Bidyah Mosque 

Al Bidyah Mosque
