Take the cable car along the creek

For a real bird's-eye view of old Dubai, take a sightseeing ride on the cable car at the Creek Park. The half-hour journey runs 30 metres up in the air over a route of 2.3km, taking in the skyline of Old Dubai, which lines the water’s edge. On clearer days, Sheikh Zayed Road’s skyscrapers are also visible.
