Bur Dubai and the South Bank

This area, a tightly packed residential and trading district, is known by the name of Bur Dubai, so if you hear people talking about the "Bur Dubai side" you'll know they mean the south side of the creek.

Most of Dubai's important historical attractions are located along the south bank, just a stone's throw from the creek. Fortifications, mansions, and the city's last remaining historic quarter are within easy reach of one another, and the largest downtown park is also on the south side. Bur Dubai is home to several busy souks, or markets, and bustling bazaars where you cannot miss the city's multicultural mix.
