Beachroad Magazine joins photographer Julian Castaldi on a trip to Dubai Creek, The creek divides the city into Bur Dubai and Deira. Walking besides the creek, amongst the hustle and bustle of small, friendly businesses evokes memories of the city’s trading past whilst the Abras criss-cross the Creek loaded with locals and tourists on board. To cross the Creek costs a mere 1 dirham. The larger Dhows jam-packed with everything from fabrics and soft drinks to pallets of car batteries and tyres, make their way to the mouth of the Creek and onwards to neighbouring countries and beyond. The Gold Souk, the Perfume Souk and the Spice Souk are part of old Dubai, its narrow lanes filled with traders selling incense, oils, perfumes, fruits as well as spices and dates. And scents which stir up memories of lands faraway. If you are lucky enough to visit Dubai you simply must not miss out on seeing and experiencing a piece of real Dubai.
