For budget-conscious Dubai visitors, the Dubai Creek and Dubai Downtown area are the best places to enjoy the incredible sights of Dubai without worrying about splurging.

    Start your day with a stroll along the Dubai Creek area. You can view Dubai's blended city skyline of olden charms and modern towers on an abra ride across the creek. A fantastic way to enjoy traditional shopping in Dubai is to visit the Dubai souks, where you can get some amazing merchandise for discounted prices, especially if you have a knack for bargaining.
