Dubai is the city that just keeps on giving.

Sure, you can visit the world's tallest building, sip 24-carat liquid gold in an iconic 'seven star' hotel, swim with dolphins or ski in the desert, but when you want to experience REAL Dubai heritage, the city also shows up trumps.

The Roads and Transport Authority has announced new marina transport routes, meaning you can visit spots like Al Fahidi Museum, the spice and textile souqs and Baniyas Square all by Abram, adding the already numerous routes available.

When Old Dubai starts to feel like Venice

We have announced changes in the marine transit network of Dubai Creek as part of our continues efforts to improve service and convenience. The step is in line with our third strategic goal (People Happiness). Lines have been increased from one to four. Al Fahidi and Al Sabkha Stations have been added to the existing stations of Al Seef, Baniyas, Dubai Old Souq and Al Ghubaiba, two lines have been introduced, the first line between Al Sabkha (Deira) and Al Fahidi (Bur Dubai), the second line links Al Sabkha and Al Ghubaiba Stations.
