Dubai Creek has been included for the UNESCO World Heritage List and on a shortlist of 30 set to be considered by this year’s committee.
The Dubai Creek holds a significance in the history of the economic development of the emirate.
This is a bustling waterway that attracts thousands of tourists, traders and residents every day.
It would be a second world heritage site for the UAE. The cultural sites of Al Ain were added to the list in 2011.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) complies a World Heritage list on a yearly basis.
Currently there are 1,037 places on the world heritage list. Dubai Creek should make that 1,038.
