Dubai Creek’s Latest Addition
This is an incredible new addition to Dubai’s already vast retail repertoire, the floating marketplace at Dubai Creek will be a cool and quirky alternative to the numerous indoor and outdoor malls and retail destinations around Dubai. When you’re getting fed up of walking through air conditioned malls or strolling alongside the beach at some of the great beachfront destinations in Dubai, you can now turn to the floating marketplace at the Dubai Creek where you’ll be able to traverse across about 17 different retail units all on-board some of the traditional abra boats. These traditional maritime inspired retail units will be boutique stores that will have international brands that we all know and love as well as some of great little local brands from around Dubai.
Don’t worry too much, you won’t be sweating out like some of the other more natural style marketplaces because the abra boats will be fully air conditioned and there’s going to be a number of food and drink boats floating around for you to settle down at. Relax on the waterways of Dubai with this unique new shopping destination.
No exact date has been announced yet for the floating marketplace to open up but we’re fairly sure it’ll be open some point this year at Al Seef.
