Bur Dubai (in Arabic: بر دبي , ) is a historic district in Dubaimarker, United Arab Emiratesmarker, located on the western side of the Dubai Creekmarker. It is home to several popular places for tourists. The name literally translates to Mainland Dubai, a reference to the traditional separation of the Bur Dubai area from Deiramarker by the Dubai Creekmarker. This is because Bur Dubai historically consisted of all districts between the western bank of the Creek and Jumeirahmarker.

As of 2008, work was being undertaken to extend Dubai Creek back to the sea, turning Bur Dubai into an island. The work is planned to be complete by 2010.
