Disappearing Dhows on Dubai Creek

Dubai Creek without Dhows is unimaginable. The combination of Dubai Creek, Dhows and Dubai Traders is the basis of Dubai's growth and prosperity as well as its attraction as a Tourist Centre. But the unimaginable may soon happen. Plans are proposed to relocate Dhows from Dubai Creek to a new harbour being built on Deira Corniche. One reason cited is the pollution Dhows cause. Dubai Creek will not be the same without Dhows. Below is a photogallery about Dhows on Dubai Creek as they used to be in 1970s and 80s.
