1,103 reviews
Experience several desert pursuits in one outing, including ATV-driving—something many tours only offer at an extra cost—on this red-dune desert tour from Dubai. Skip the hassle of transport and logistical planning; and be free to simply enjoy the dunes and activities provided. Zoom off on an ATV, ride a camel, go sandboarding; enjoy henna art and Arabian-costume photos; and conclude with a barbecue-buffet dinner and live shows.

I've discovered and explore this area with a local guide (Mohamed) along with the local markets, It's sad that many tourists miss this place . It's so beautiful 🤩

The gentle purring of the engines of the abras; combined with different water side sounds, makes this dock a pleasant place to hangout. There is a snack bar here, so you can top up with a smoothie while relaxing. It is nice to watch the abra boats arrive and depart, fill up with people and disembark their passengers. A very good place to watch the sunset.

The Old Town is a bustling part of Dubai, slightly more chaotic than Downtown and beyond. The old style wooden abras offer a great experience - one can cross Dubai Creek, where the city’s history began, for just one dirham per crossing. Most of the abras still run in diesel and the smell of fuel is potent but charming. The crossing offers great views of this older part of the city, including mosques and much lower rise buildings than the more modern part of the city. The abras offer access to the gold and spice souks and the numerous restaurants and shops in this part of town.

The best way to travel from Old Dubai to the Old Souk or gold souk or spice souk is across the creek in an old wooden boat, which is a water taxi.

a unique age old , water taxi system which exists in dubai is a must for a visitor to see the real face of old 7 new Dubai, it ferries about 25 people per trip & the cost is just less than a Dollar, apart from being low cost it is still the fastest way to go from Bur Dubai to Deira the business hub.
